Political sociologists probe into thorny issues, ask tough questions, and reveal obscure truths; often what they learn is neither simple nor comforting. By exploring how societal power relationships and political actions combine to create a particular societal situation, such as homelessness or street crime, one develops a critical understanding of the dynamics of the power dimensions of human relationships, group processes, and social institutions. This well-organized introduction to political sociology provides a comprehensive synthesis of complex ideas, makes theory come alive, and highlights contemporary developments in the field. Early in the text, Neuman presents theoretical frameworks as models to understand political sociology; he makes abstract material understandable and relevant. Understanding how power relations constantly shape many areas of our daily life results in greater control over events and an improved quality of life.
