This is Sociology is an engaging, concise introduction to the key concepts used for studying social life.

- Uses compelling international examples and a range of theoretical perspectives from across the world, including theorists that have often been omitted from the established sociological canon.
- Covers topics such as globalization, culture, gender, race, and class.
- Introduces the latest approaches emerging from efforts to build an inclusive global sociology, one that moves beyond a Eurocentric perspective and is equipped for the challenges of the 21st Century.
