The second edition of Ken Browne’s highly successful Introducing Sociology for AS-level provides in-depth and up-to-date coverage of the complete specification for AQA AS-level sociology.

The first edition of this book was widely praised for its comprehensive coverage, and student-friendly style. In this second edition, all of the chapters have been revised to include new studies, reports and statistics. Key sociological terms are now systematically highlighted all the way through the book, and included in a comprehensive glossary, with fresh questions and activities added to develop and test students’ understanding further. Fuller consideration of issues of identity has been given throughout the text. More detailed advice has been provided on coursework, including a top-mark example to show students exactly what they have to do to achieve the highest grades. What’s more, two authentic exam questions are now included on every topic.

Pitched at exactly the right level for AS sociology, the book provides all the tools necessary to help students achieve top grades, and a sound basis for progression to A2. A host of cartoons, photographs, graphs, tables, and spider diagrams help to enliven the text, as well as reinforcing key issues. Web sites and web-based activities are included throughout, encouraging students to engage with the most recent social changes, and developments in sociology.

Although it assumes no previous knowledge of sociology, its dedicated and in-depth coverage of all the AQA’s AS topics provides a useful reference tool for the synoptic elements at A2.

The second edition of Introducing Sociology for AS Level combines sociological rigour and accessibility in a way unrivalled by any other book at this level. It will be an invaluable resource to anyone following the AQA specifications.
