An excellent, essential text for students in sociology!
The Social Lens is a well-written and comprehensive text that explores theorists proposals regarding inequality. I would recommend this text for anyone seeking to develop a course in sociological theory that will provide a great overview of theories that are essential to the field of sociology. This text is easy to read and is complete with several tables and figures that provide a useful visual description of complex sociological concepts.
Sticking with Edles and Appelrouth, Sociological Theory in the Classical Era: Text and Readings.
This book provides excellent overviews of sociological theories, from the basic, consensus and conflict perspectives to their contemporary and more complex post modern understandings. The book would be most useful for A-level and first year undergraduate students, who are developing their critical thinking and evaluation skills.
Great critical thinking exercises, good organization and breadth of topics. The reading level was good for an undergraduate course.
A text which is recommended as background reading for students.
Well written and clear.
will be used with level 5 and 6 also
This book gives dissertation students an excellent review of the sociological theory they have studied in previous modules, allowing them the deeper insight and connection such a text brings
Excellent -- even better than the second edition! Easy to read, easy to use. I like the added piece on critical thinking and the exercises in critical thinking at the end of each chapter.
Good introduction and discussion of thinking sociologically
An excellent and comprehensive text for both students and tutors alike. Many useful points of discussion and organised in a reader friendly way.
