June 2017 | 736 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Written by a leading sociologist of Scotland, this ground-breaking new introduction is a comprehensive account of the social, political, economic and cultural processes at work in contemporary Scottish society. At a time of major uncertainty and transformation The New Sociology of Scotland explores every aspect of Scottish life. Placed firmly in the context of globalization, the text:
  • Examines a broad range of topics including race and ethnicity, social inequality, national identity, health, class, education, sport, media and culture, among many others.  
  • Looks at the ramifications of recent political events such as British General Election of 2015, the Scottish parliament election of May 2016, and the Brexit referendum of June 2016.
  • Uses learning features such as further reading and discussion questions to stimulate students to engage critically with issues raised.
Written in a lucid and accessible style, The New Sociology of Scotland is an indispensable guide for students of sociology and politics.
