About the Author

Nicholas Abercrombie is Professor of Sociology and Deputy Vice-Chancellor, University of Lancaster.


"Both society and sociology have changed tremendously in recent years, and there has been a need for a good short introduction to a fast changing discipline. This book will fill that gap and provide undergraduates with an excellent introduction to the key concepts and concerns of contemporary sociology. It will be ideal for students approaching sociology for the first time: they will enjoy the many examples from contemporary films, TV programmes and books. It makes sociology relevant, exciting and fun, without compromising on intellectual rigour." -- David Abbott, former Head of Sociology at Hills Road Sixth-Form College "Of all the many books of this kind this is easily one of the most compelling. It is beautifully written ? clear, alluring, and very readable for students." -- Charles Lemert, Professor of Sociology, Wesleyan University, Connecticut
