Product Description

Review

"Giddens is the monarch of the introductory–text glen, and this handsomely updated seventh edition is a worthy successor." Timer Higher Education Selected endorsements for previous editions: "With this new edition of Sociology , Anthony Giddens has done the seemingly impossible. He has lifted the best introductory text in sociology in the world to yet a further level of excellence. It is a great achievement." Ulrich Beck, The London School of Economics "There′s no one on the planet with such a refined grasp of the practical and political significance of sociology as Anthony Giddens. This new edition of his best–selling textbook is his best yet." Anthony Elliott, University of Kent at Canterbury

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Moontrane TOP 500 REVIEWER on 22 Jun 2013
Format: Paperback
Anthony Giddens' 'Sociology' was first published in 1989 and this 1232-page, 7th edition(2013) is probably the best yet. Clearly written and extensively revised with new material on the global financial crisis, austerity riots and the Arab Spring, this intellectually stimulating, comprehensive and jargon-free introduction to sociology is an ideal guide for A-level students, undergraduates and the general reader who wishes to make sense of our complex social world.

A terrific all-round primer in Sociology, co-written by one of Britain's foremost living sociological thinkers. It covers everything, as well as acknowledging what still may yet be covered by the epithet "Sociology".
Just don't try to read it on the tube! (It is vast!)
