From its first edition in 1979, Perspectives in Sociology has provided generations of undergraduates with a clear, reassuring introduction to the complications of sociological theory. This revised and updated edition features:
a completely rewritten general introduction and conclusion;
all-new introductions to each part, clarifying how each one builds on what came before;
an updated set of formative questions at the end of each chapter;
a comprehensive glossary of key terms.
While retaining its emphasis and wealth of information on the founding figures of sociology, this sixth edition includes new tools that will allow students from related disciplines to access relevant sociological material quickly.
