About this book

Introduction

Introductory Sociology has established itself as one of the most popular textbooks in its field. The third edition is completely revised, updated and redesigned, to include additional diagrams, charts, information boxes and illustrations, and will be a blend of innovation and continuity - both in terms of form and content.

In connection with broad changes in the discipline, there are three issues which provide the new focus of the book; these are debates about the status of modernity, globalisation and a stronger concern with the construction of identity. The result is a lively, up-to-date and accessible text that encourages the reader to think more deeply about wider sociological themes while developing a sound substantive knowledge base in all key areas.

Free to all adopters of the textbook is a resource pack specially designed to meet the needs of the busy lecturer. It offers a clear and easy-to-follow overview of the textbook, including the aims of, and key concepts introduced in, each chapter, as well as innumerable ideas for seminar discussions, essay questions and further reading. In addition, the pack includes a wide selection of material, drawn both from the textbook itself and from other sources, that lends itself to use in the classroom or lecture hall and is supplied in the form of overhead transparency masters.

Adopters can register to gain free access to the Resource Pack online at: www.macmillan-press.co.uk/sociology
