Description

Sociology is interested in the way citizens shape a society and the way a society shapes its citizens. Simply, it is the study of how society functions, or how it doesn't.

In the series' inimitable style, Introducing Sociology: A Graphic Guide traces the origins of sociology from industrialization, revolution and the Enlightenment through to globalization, neoliberalism and the fear of nationalism - introducing you to key thinkers, movements and concepts along the way.

You will develop insight into the world around you, as you engage your 'sociological imagination' and explore studies of the city, theories of power and knowledge, concepts of national, racial and sexual identity, and much more.
