A Dictionary of Sociology, Paperback

A Dictionary of Sociology Paperback

Part of the Oxford Quick Reference series



A consistent best-seller, the wide-ranging and authoritative Dictionary of Sociology was first published in 1994 and contains more than 2,500 entries on the terminology, methods, concepts, and thinkers in the field, as well as from the related fields of psychology, economics, anthropology, philosophy, and political science.

For this fourth edition, Professor John Scott has conducted a thorough review of all entries to ensure that they are concise, focused, and up to date.

Revisions reflect current intellectual debates and social conditions, particularly in relation to global and multi-cultural issues.

New entries cover relevant contemporary concepts, such as climate change, social media, terrorism, and intersectionality, as well as key living sociologists.

This Dictionary is both an invaluable introduction to sociology for beginners, and an essential source of reference for more advanced students and teachers.
