Product Description


The editor [of The Blackwell Encyclopedia of Sociology] has now miraculously condensed those 11 volumes into this one comparatively inexpensive paperback As an up–to–date cheap printed reference source this book stands more or less alone The entries are clear and comprehensible, there are some useful suggestions for further reading, the cross–referencing is good, and there is a simple straightforward index with no indentations. I am very happy to recommend this book to any student still interested in buying printed works.   (Reference Reviews, 2012)



"Comprehensive and concise, this book is an unbeatable guide to modern sociology for faculty and students alike. Equally a major contribution to the discipline of sociology and a cornucopia of concepts, figures, and issues, it is written in authoritative but accessible language. A major triumph in the publishing world."
Bryan S. Turner, The Graduate Center, City University of New York

"With entries that are intelligent and well–written, this is an impressive reference for students and others looking for up–to–date and informed explanations of sociological concepts and ideas."
Amy S. Wharton, Washington State University

"An invaluable guide for anyone interested in knowing about the history of social thought and studying the social world."
Kate Nash, Goldsmiths, University of London
