A scintillating introduction to what sociology is, what it can be and how it can mould our imagination not only to change our lives but to shape those of others.
This is Sociology is a compact yet very wide-ranging introduction. Woodman and Threadgold deal expertly with traditional topics like class, culture and generation; and introduce new themes, from necropolitics and queer theory to climate change, with contemporary thinkers from the post-colonial world. Clearly arranged, clearly written, this is a very useful guide for students and teachers.
This is a superb volume of key concepts that enables students and sociologists worldwide to understand and navigate our changing social world. In addition to a simplified text for students, one can find key references for each topic come from the Global North but also from Global South, as well a very useful glossary.
