This textbook provides a thorough overview of the discipline of Sociology. It introduces the classical figures in sociological thought, and shows how their work can help explain issues in contemporary Australian society. It then examines key aspects of society including the family, health and popular culture, and analyses them in detail. Through real examples, the authors show how to develop a critical approach to social issues. Sociology is an ideal text for Sociology students and introduction for readers in Health, Social Work, Education, Gender Studies and other fields who are seeking a good understanding of sociological thought.
