Product Description

Review

'Simply the best book for Introducing Sociology.' - M. Erben, University of Southampton

'An excellent sociology textbook.' - Barbara Griffin, University of Sunderland

'The book is excellent.' - S. Leaton-Gray, Cambridge University

'Well written and structured...it is very accessible and yet it maintains its academic standard.' - George Smith, University of Central England

'Excellent user-friendly layout - easy to find key information.' - Dr Sophie Gilliat-Ray, Cardiff University

'An excellent introductory text which is written in a style which is very accessible to students. The additional on-line material is very helpful.' - J. West, Glasgow Caledonian University

'A comprehensive introduction to sociology.' - J. Montgomery, University of Wales, Bangor

Reviews of the previous edition:

'Bilton's team of authors has grown to six since the second edition and the book has also expanded in length, but the work has lost none of its topicality, sound scholarship and breadth of coverage. In addition, it comes this time with an instructor's pack, which ought to be purchased by anyone interested in using it on courses, since the exercises and overheads will make class preparation much easier... Introductory Sociology can be warmly recommended...' - Times Higher Education Supplement

'I am impressed with the range, scale and scope of this volume. As always it contains a range of very good material where data are presented clearly and elegantly and illustrated with material drawn from a range of sociological studies.' - Professor Robert Burgess, University of Warwick

Format: Paperback
This book got me through my first year at University.
It gives an easy to understand (jargon free) introduction to all of the basic subjects that encompass the subject of Sociology.
I found it very easy to understand and the case studies made the book a little more animated than others.
A good buy!
