'This is an excellent introduction to the subject...The authors' aim is to integrate theory, methodology and research findings and this they do very successfully' - British Book News 'David Lee and Howard Newby are to be congratulated on producing such a stimulating introductory text' - Network 'While designed with undergraduates in mind, The Problem of Sociology will be stimulating reading for teachers at other levels' - Times Education Supplement This is a classic introductory text for first year students. It provides both an introduction to 'classical' theory and an examination of the ways these theories illuminate present social problems. The authors reject the convential 'institutional' approach to sociology which begins with the family and moves on through education, community and work. Instead they reassert the most important issues raised by the history of sociological thought and demonstrate their contemporary relevance.
