This comprehensive and bestselling Reader examines the most pressing topics in sociology and education while exposing students to examples of sociological research on schools. Drawing from classic and contemporary scholarship, noted sociologist Alan R. Sadovnik has chosen readings that examine current issues and reflect diverse theoretical approaches to studying the effects of schooling and society. The second edition provides students with seven new readings from some of the best theorists and researchers in education including James S. Coleman, Madeleine Arnot, and Claudia Buchman. Through full, rather than excerpted primary source readings, students have the opportunity to read sociological research as it is written and engage in critical analyses of readings in their entirety. Including comprehensive section introductions, questions for reflection and discussion, and suggested readings, Sociology of Education will stimulate student thinking about the important roles that schools play in contemporary society and their ability to solve fundamental social, economic and political problems.

Alan R. Sadovnik is Professor of Education, Sociology, and Public Affairs at Rutgers University, Newark, New Jersey.Review:
"Sociology of Education is a fabulous reader. Sadovnik lays out the field in a concise but nuanced way. Students are much better served by having experience with full arguments and being able to see setups, methods, and other parts that excerpted works often cut." --Marcus Weaver-Hightower, Associate Professor, Educational Foundations and Research, University of North Dakota
Praise for the previous edition:
"Sociology of Education offers the student a concise portrayal of sociological theory and methods and an understanding that sociology is not limited to a single level of focus, such as on individuals, collectivities, or societies. Further, this textbook possesses a hallmark of quality textbooks in sociology---a capacity to weave diverse theories together."--A. Gary Dworkin, Professor of Sociology, University of Houston
