9780534074760: Thinking Sociologically

This brief, conceptual introduction to the substance of sociology challenges what the author feels is the limiting and nonanalytic approach taken by most current introductory texts. This provocative text stimulates students to think critically and conceptually, encouraging them to go beyond facts to form judgements and opinions of their own. It encourages students to read, assess, and interpret sociological evidence itself, so they can form their own opinions about the interpretations offered. The emphasis is on how to state questions, and look for, and at evidence. Theory, methods, and research findings from the substantive areas of sociology are integrated, and the concerns of the "classic" theorists are presented in the current treatment of research. The book provides illustrations of the importance of examing rival hypotheses in the context of data interpretation and takes a close look at the assessment of tables and other means of data presentation. Each substantive chapter contains an extended illustration of the process of developing an hypothesis and transforming it into a workable research project. Major periodical references are provided to assist students in locating emp This book should be of interest to degree and diploma students on courses in research methods, social theory and introductory sociology.
