From the Back Cover:

In recent years, sociology has recognised the significance ofculture as a focus for understanding the processes and systems ofrelations through which societies are arranged.  It is nolonger seen as merely the by-product of structural experiences ofclass, gender, race, but as a force in itself for the creation ofsocial experience.

 

The field is now burgeoning and Cultural Sociology: AnIntroduction is the first dedicated student textbook tosystematically address cultural sociology as a legitimate model forsociological thinking and research. A group of highly renowned andrespected authors focus on major sociological themes and issues,such as gender, class, and race, and clearly illustrate how theirapplication in cultural sociology compares with their use in moreconventional sociological approaches. The book also sets out thekey antecedents contributing to the emergence of cultural sociologyand presents students with a firm grounding in theoretical andmethodological principles applied by cultural sociologists in theirwork.

 

The result is a rich overview of the various empiricalapplications of cultural sociology, which engages student interestby outlining cultural sociological approaches with a connection toeveryday cultural experiences, including music, fashion, eating,and media.
