This book explores the possibility of drawing upon a punk ethos to inspire sociology and to cultivate a vibrant future for the discipline. Aiming to fire the sociological imaginations of sociologists at any stage of their careers, from new students to established professors, it uses punk to think creatively about what sociology is and how it might be conducted. Following a succinct outline of the disciplinary and social challenges that sociology faces today, the book then applies the punk ethos to sociological knowledge, communication and terrain. The concept of punk sociology is developed through a series of riffs, each of which directly applies key features of the punk ethos to sociology.

Punk Sociology encourages sociologists to avoid the temptation to play it safe. Instead it calls for us to be bold, open, inventive, and to produce raw, stripped back and fearless work that adheres to a do-it-yourself ethic.

About the Author:

David Beer is Senior Lecturer in Sociology at the University of York. His previous publications include the books Popular Culture and New Media: The Politics of Circulation and New Media: The Key Concepts (co-authored with Nicholas Gane).

Review:

"Punk Sociology counts off a passionate and thoughtful call to re-animate the sociological imagination. Dave Beer's book inspires, provokes and entertains - nevermind the bollocks here is sociology's future." - Les Back, Professor of Sociology, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK

"I would have loved to have read a book like this as an undergraduate in first-year sociology in the early 1980s, when unfortunately I found myself bored rigid by the dry and dull way in which the discipline was taught. I suspect that undergraduates and even postgraduates in sociology today would also welcome Beer's thoughts on enlivening sociology." - Deborah Lupton, This Sociological Life blog
 
"I would argue that this should be an essential text for every potential and practicing Sociologist in hope that the call to arms and the provocation it provides will engender the seed change that Beer argues for." - Jon Rainford, Jon Rainford's Blog
