4.0 out of 5 stars My Review, 9 May 2008
This review is from: A Dictionary of Sociology (Oxford Paperback Reference) (Paperback)
This is an excellent book which helps give insight onto many subjects which really help understand how we work as people, it's highly reccomended reading which will make you look at the world around you in a completely different way.

The reason why it doesn't get the fifth star is because not all sociology related subjects are covered (not much of a problem as I can only think of two at the moment and when the book does give information on the subject it's really interesting and will keep you hooked)The next problem is that this book's language can be quite complex (but that's not much of a problem as a dictionary is easily accesible).

Is this book worth the money? Well, let me give you the answer, on Amazon this book sells for 8.49 and I payed 10.99 for it at waterstones but even then it was worth every single penny, I would highly reccomend this book to everyone who has an interest in this subject.

The sign of a good dictionary is that all the definitions are described in such a way that the need for further use of a dictionary to explain them is not required!
