David Spurling believes that a sociology book should enable the reader to understand social problems. Spurling uses his background, including research on the single homeless to look at sociological perspectives and research methods. The book looks at the variety of perspectives including Marxism, functionalism, feminism and neo-liberalism. His transport background, as both a worker and a lecturer, is reflected in the chapters on urbanism. A sociology book that claims to be comprehensive but ignores climate change would be nonsensical as it is the most important problem for current and future generations; therefore this book discusses this issue and what to do about it. Spurling’s chapter on crime looks at the importance of crime to the victims, using statistics, so that it presents a different perspective to many other books. The chapter on race reflects the ways in which perceptions of immigration have little relationship to the actual data available and also the way in which the media has a great influence on public opinion. Spurling uses his examiner experience, as well as teaching experience, to examine the different aspects of the educational system. The chapter on religion reflects the wide variety of views on this subject. As a Quaker, Spurling’s views on religion have a Quaker perspective. The hatred towards people of other religions or no religion is also examined in both contemporary and past societies. The influence of education and attitudes towards it are examined. Spurling has also included a chapter of questions and answers. This book would be ideal for first-year university students, including the University of London International Degree, as well as for A-Level students looking for different material. Learning Through Cooperation Ltd hopes that this book will provide support to anyone sitting their exams.

Sociology And The Real World

Author : Stephen Lyng

In this new book, Lyng and Franks argue that contemporary sociology has lost its connection to human realities. Addressing the conceptual underpinnings of sociological practice, they offer ways for sociology to reclaim lost concepts of objectivity, reality, and truth. The authors deconstruct these terms in modern and postmodern contexts, yet they look beyond the usual predicaments espoused by these traditions in an effort to rebuild concepts of reality and truth more coherently for contemporary social relations and social problems.

The Sacred Project Of American Sociology

Author : Christian Smith

This text shows counter-intuitively, that the secular enterprise that everyday sociology appears to be pursuing is actually not what is really going on at sociology's deepest level. Sociology today is in fact animated by sacred impulses, driven by sacred commitments, and serves a sacred project. The book re-asserts a vision for what sociology is most important for, in contrast with its current commitments, and calls sociologists back to a more honest, fair, and healthy vision of its purpose.

This book features useful examples, frequent applications to real-world living, and cross-cultural perspectives. The author writes with a precision and clarity lacking in many sociology texts and makes the presentation of sociology both informative and interesting. The author's love of the field is apparent on every page of this involving text, and students will appreciate the way that Doob tells the story of sociology by presenting sociology as a set of accounts or narratives about specific sociological issues or events. While doing this, Doob also offers extremely thorough coverage of sociology including strong theory, fundamental concepts, and sociological ideas.
