This textbook is really good. It follows the AQA specification in clearly organised topics, with each topic corresponding to the AQA specification bullet points, and covers all the stuff included in the AQA recommended schemes of work, and in enough detail to cover the material properly. It is very up to date, with lots of recent studies. It also covers the whole of the AS, with none of the areas missing. I like the book, and thoroughly recommend it to other sociology teachers and students who want to achieve high grades at AS.

It covers the detail required at GCSE level in an easily accessible form for typical GCSE students, and is a well illustrated and lively introduction to sociology. It is easily the most up-to-date book around, in a field where some of the other textbooks suitable for use at this level are now ten years old, which make them difficult for my students to… Read more
