The second edition of this pioneering text, Global Sociology, offers an innovative approach to sociology that takes the global dimensions of the contemporary world as its overarching framework. Fully revised and updated with a new Introduction and three new chapters, Global Sociology is written in a fresh and relevant style for undergraduate readers whether they have studied sociology before or are approaching the subject for the first time.
Carefully balancing contemporary sociological theory and concepts with arguments and concrete examples drawn from around the globe, Global Sociology highlights the scope and the importance of sociology for understanding the complex and ever-changing world around us. This new edition reflects current world events and debates in the discipline, importantly covering the aftermath of September 11, the new terrorist threat, and the impact of globalization.

“The first edition of this book was a truly path-breaking venture in the history of sociology textbooks. This second edition retains all the qualities of the first and is an even more impressive, stimulating, and not least, very readable work.”
