Valuable book at A/AS and even undergraduate level,
This review is from: Sociology Themes and Perspectives (Paperback)I *used* the older edition of Haralambus Themes and persepectives (amongst many other sociology books) whilst writing my first essay as a mature student on a BSc(H) degree.
Overall, it is easy to read and even pleasurable to someone who hasn't sudied sociology before.
My 16 year old daughter is going to start an A Level in sociology in Septmeber, so when I saw that a new edition had been published I jumped to pre-order for her prep.
This new edition is similar in content, slightly differantly worded but none-the-less a GREAT inro to sociology.
The newly offered web site support is invaluable and I wish the chapters on health and the body had been inclded in the last edition--would have made my writing easier.
The Retrosexism content is also interesting,and almost (unwittingly) supported a recent programme on channell 4 recently.
Over all, it is a MUST for A Level students, and I found it the best in its area for My 1st year at degree lel too.
