The authors take full account of the wide range of students who study sociology by presenting the subject in a lively and accessible way. They encourage the development of a searching, critical approach to sociology through interaction with the reader. Contemporary issues are explored and made relevant. The main theoretical perspectives and debates are presented thoroughly and clearly. Ideas and guidance for course and project work are provided along with preparation for examinations. The text will be particularly useful to students following the revised AEB syllabus, the Inter Board Syllabus, the NEAB syllabus and other A-level examinations. Sociology Explained is also a superb introduction to sociology for people on vocationally oriented courses in nursing, social work, teaching and management training.
