This book shows how society is changing, in terms of class, ethnicity and attitudes towards gender and work. It covers research methods, which are important for sociology and many other subjects. It relates to the different theories about modern society, including modernisation theory functionalism and feminism. It investigates how attitudes towards crime and religion have changed in the UK and also other countries. Donald Trump has commented about globalisation and the effects on the American people. This book looks at globalisation and how it affects people in many countries. The governor of the Bank of England and nearly all world leaders have pledged their support to reduce the impact of climate change. This book therefore covers the topic, reflecting Spurlings views as an environmentalist. The book also covers voting behaviour. It includes typical ideas behind examination questions. As an examiner Spurling is well aware that many examination reports state that too many students have been well drilled, but are not answering what the question requires. This book aims to help people overcome this problem.
