Produced mainly as a resource reference for those invloved with the discipline of sociology, this book is directed at the undergraduate market but can be used by both the A-level student and the general reader. The dictionary explains a wide range of terms and concepts from every area of sociology, and a selection of those most likely to be met from associated disciplines such as psychology, economics, anthropology and political science. It also provides coverage of methodological terms and research techniques. The organization and treatment of the subject allows the reader to build coverage of all sociological schools, or to compare perspectives. Its coverage extends from social class to sexuality, from functionalism to Feyerabend, and from lumpenproletariat to Likert scale. There are also biographical entries on key figures in the development of sociology.
