Described as offering one line definitions of a wide range of social science concepts, the book does actually go into its definitions in a little more depth. You will find extensive entries on many of the major figures of social science, plus well-presented and highly accessible analyses of such concepts as 'alienation' or 'anomie' - both being conditions you are likely to experience when writing an essay ... and both being capable of amelioration by using this neat little volume of crib notes.
I have a degree and a Masters in sociology; I work in social work. I've carried this little volume around with me since 1984 and still find it very useful, from time to time. It's now into its second edition - make sure that is what you get, because the earlier edition was before postmodernism ... and you wouldn't want to miss out on that! It won't actually pass your exams for you, but it is a reassuring little friend to have handy when doing revision or writing essays ... how do you spell 'ethnomethodology', and what does it all mean?
