Why are there pirates in the supermarket?
Sociologic: Analysing Everyday Life and Culture is my new contemporary introduction to sociology for the modern student. I have written it to bring sociology to life – it should not be about, in the words of one of my students, simply about the theories of ‘dead white guys’!
Readers will learn about sociological concepts through examination of a variety of theories and theorists, all the while relating and applying this knowledge to their own experiences of everyday life. Students will relish exploring the world of society and culture through personal narrative, humour, and examples.
I am the editor and have assembled a stellar author team who collectively give students the tools to analyse how society functions, operates and changes… and lay down a challenge to change it for the better.
- Learn through the voices of real people – student and professional profiles throughout the text show real life examples of situations and expose readers to a wealth of voices and perspectives.
- Critical reflection questions and discussion questions – encourage students to look at their own lives as they learn so they can see how the theories are relevant.
- Rich with extra references and further reading to help readers investigate each subject area to greater depths.
