In this lucid, stimulating and original book, Zygmunt Bauman and Tim May explore the underlying assumptions and tacit expectations which structure our view of the world. The authors elucidate key concepts in sociology: for example, individualism versus community, and privilege versus deprivation. While charting a course through sociology's main concerns, Bauman and May also examine the applicability of sociology to everyday life.

Zygmunt Bauman has written more than seventy books over five decades, most taking a single subject and finding doors to open it in all directions. His work is an essential reference point in sociology, but it is time that everyone caught up with him. In this book Tony Blackshaw doesn't just tell us that Bauman is a massive star in sociology, he demonstrates why his light shines brighter than that of almost any other intellectual figure in the world today by offering his readers deep insights into the 'Bauman Effect'. The new Bauman reader is two books in one. On the one hand, it is a critical introduction to a vital and inspiring sociologist who stands against the predictable in 'majority' sociology to draw out daring and new insights from which we can all learn. On the other, it is an anthology of his work chosen with the specific aim of guiding readers, whether undergraduates, postgraduates, academics or general readers to Bauman's original way of 'thinking sociologically', which is as irresistible as the 'liquid' metaphor that guides it.

Thinking Sociologically, Second Edition is a conceptual and substantive introduction to the study of sociology. Most textbooks, according to Dr. Goldenberg, are written as encyclopedias of facts that summarize the current state of knowledge on each topic within a discipline. While fact-oriented coverage introduces students to the breadth of topics within the field, this approach remains partial and superficial and fails to teach students how to think from a sociological perspective and how to apply this type of critical thinking. Thinking Sociologically includes stimulating illustrative readings that reinforce students' analytical and logical thinking skills while sharpening their sociological imaginations. The author also includes sample questions and answers, and some interesting debates in the field, to demonstrate the theoretical reasoning and open-minded consideration of the issues that are essential to sound sociological inquiry. Students who have grasped the sociological perspectives and social science methodologies presented in this text will be well prepared to undertake plausible and productive sociological study in any area of interest.

The author has approached this work with the aim of providing a manageable length and accessible introduction to sociology. This text concentrates more heavily than conventional texts on developing the psychological and intellectual qualities that are necessary to effectively approach the subject. It is pitched at GCE A Level and is aimed at the sociology student or general reader who is looking for an alternative to the standard texts. The text focuses more on guiding the reader into thinking sociologically than providing a comprehensive grounding in the academic content of the subject. The idea for this type of text originated from a perceived need for such an alternative in teaching Access to Higher Education students and is modelled on an approach that has been applied successfully in working with such groups.

Hailed upon publication as a cogent and hard-hitting critique, The Sociological Imagination took issue with the ascendant schools of sociology in the United States, calling for a humanist sociology connecting the social, personal, and historical dimensions of our lives. Leading sociologist Todd Gitlin brings this fortieth anniversary edition up to date with a lucid afterword in which he considers the ways social analysis has progressed since Mills first published his study in 1959. A classic in the field, this book still provides rich food for our imagination.

Sociology students must not only acquire knowledge of the discipline but also learn to apply it and think sociologically. [The author hopes] this book will help toward that end.... Unlike most introductory textbooks, which prsent the discipline's concepts and theories. The result is something closer to "sociology in action" rather than merely "sociology on display". -Pref.
