How can developing a sociological gaze help us understand the way we

live? Public Sociology shows that our lives are not solely determined by

personal choices, demonstrating how a sociological gaze allows us to see

the way our private troubles are connected to public issues.

Public Sociology highlights the utility and application of sociology in

professional and community life using real-world examples from Australia

and across the globe. The first edition of Public Sociology established itself

as a highly regarded and accessible student text. This second edition has

been thoroughly updated to maintain a fresh approach, and reflects the

ever-increasing importance of technology in our lives. The authors reveal

how the tools of sociological training and an empirically grounded

sociological perspective are essential to understanding and engaging with

contemporary Australian society.
