Engaging and innovative, Seeing Politics Differently: A Brief Introduction to Political Sociology provides students with a concise introduction to political sociology--the study of how power is distributed within society. Using a unique approach designed to help students to understand theory as it applies to such familiar topics as wealth, cultural status, and institutions, Seeing Politics Differently examines the way that power is created, maintained, and challenged within government, schools, homes, workplaces, the community, and even ourselves. Offering an accessible discussion of key works and perspectives within the discipline, with reference to contemporary examples throughout, the authors make a persuasive case for the importance of cultivating the ability to critically assess who is permitted to hold power in our world, and on what basis.

Howard Ramos is the acting graduate coordinator and associate professor of sociology and social anthropology at Dalhousie University.

Review:

"A convincing and accessible account of politics. . . . The extensive references to Canadian material and authors is extremely welcome and addresses a very important absence in the Canadian context."

--Jose Julian Lopez, University of Ottawa

"The text is clear and accessible. . . . Discussions of difficult subjects such as 'power' are nuanced yet boiled down to an understandable level for undergraduates, without being dull."

--Gerry Coulter, Bishop's University
