Preface: Every science must have its special vocabulary or terminology. Sciences deal with ideas, thoughts, and concepts, and these must be expressed in words. Even the facts which are the groundwork of science must be set forth largely in words. No science, therefore, can have any more precision and exactitude than the words or other symbols, such as mathematical or chemical formulae, in which it is embodied. Quite generally, this situation calls for a special dictionary or glossary for each particular science.

A Critical Dictionary Of Sociology

Unlike most other sociology or social science dictionaries, in this translation of the Critical Dictionary of Sociology, taken from the second French edition of the Dictionary and edited by the English sociologist Peter Hamilton, the critical value of this distinctive work is at last made available for a wider audience. Each entry grapples directly with an issue, whether theoretical, epistemological, philosophical, political or empirical, and provides a strong statement of what the authors think about it. The discussions are considered but argumentative. By reaffirming that a non-marxist style of critique is still possible, Boudon and Bourricaud have presented a distinctive approach to the key issues which confront the societies of the Twentieth and Twenty-First centuries. For some this work will be a textbook, for others an indispensable sourcebook of sociological concepts, and for most a way of opening our eyes to new dimensions in our understanding of the great ideas and theories of sociology.

Its combination of clear prose, engaging examples, a single author's voice, and its minimal assumptions about the average reader's prior knowledge of sociology and its related fields, makes this a unique and valuable reference work.

A Comprehensive Dictionary Of Sociological Terms And Concepts With Review Questions

This new dictionary includes additional concepts, terms, and names than in the previous version in my continuing effort to make this dictionary fully comprehensive and useful for sociology students. The use of this dictionary is designed to help students master the vocabulary used in the scientific discipline of sociology. I believe that an enhanced understanding of the vocabulary used by sociologists in their quest to discover social facts leads to a better understanding of the discipline by students.It is not easy to compile a dictionary of sociological terms, concepts, and processes because the discipline is a living discipline unlike some other scientific areas of study. For instance, geologists might discover more components of a rock than previously thought, but the rock is still a rock and has not changed. Sociology on the other hand, by being a living discipline is always evolving--terms, theories, and processes come and go as the discipline adapts to the changing social world. Because of this, this dictionary is ever-changing.

As a sociological specialty, medical sociology has a distinct history and literature spanning over four decades. This literature is a synthesis of medical and sociological knowledge reflecting the relationships among medicine, health, and society. This information is of interest not only to medical sociologists, but also to physicians, nurses, psychologists, social workers, health economists, hospital administrators, and health insurers. This reference book is a guide to the sociological terminology that these health professionals are likely to encounter. The volume includes concise, alphabetically arranged entries for numerous terms. For all but the most basic terms, entries briefly discuss the theoretical and practical significance of the topics. Entries cite relevant literature, and the volume concludes with a bibliography of works cited.
