"This is an excellent textbook which marries new and classic sociological theories and research in a very clear way, saving teachers time and making it interesting for students to understand – just what you would expect from the well–respected Ken Browne." Christine Garnock–Jones, Silverdale School "It really is great to find a textbook like this which gets it right in terms of both breadth and depth. Unlike some texts, all options are covered which means this book is an essential addition to all sociology departments. The theoretical and empirical issues are addressed in an accessible way and I am sure students will find it a great help in their studies." David Gilmore, St Joseph’s College and Senior Examiner
From the Back Cover
This new textbook has been designed to accompany Ken Browne′s widely–used Sociology for AS AQA . Ken Browne has teamed up with co–authors Jonathan Blundell, Pamela Law and Margaret Whalley who have a wealth of classroom experience and all share a passion for teaching sociology. In this book they combine sociological rigour and accessibility for final–year A–level students. This exciting, full–colour textbook includes: chapters on each topic covered in the A2 specification; special sections on research methods in the chapter on crime and deviance, and stratification and differentiation; up–to–date discussions of a wide range of recent sociological data and debates; lots of colour photographs and diagrams to bring ideas to life and fire students′ imaginations; a dedicated website, including resources for teachers and additional material designed to help students revise or research themes in the book. Key sociological terms are systematically highlighted throughout the text and are included in a comprehensive glossary, with thoughtful questions and activities at important points within the chapters to develop and test students′ understanding further. Exam style questions are also found in every chapter. Pitched at exactly the right level for the new AQA A2 sociology specification, the book provides all the tools necessary to help students achieve top grades and encourage them to take their study of sociology further, whatever their needs, interests and abilities.See all Product Description

This book has helped immensely because each chapter spells everything out in a clear way with spider diagrams, pictures and detailed yet simplified explanations.
I would definatly recommend this when revising for exams because everything from the course is in it and it has extra helpful sections including key words, questions and practice exam questions at the end of each section.
As a teacher who has developed a brand new unit for the new spec I found this book very useful, as a student text I feel it is too wordy & too big for them to carry about, spine would break easily as well & pages would soon be lost.
