Inhaltsangabe: "A glossary of key concepts was just the sort of thing I needed when I was a sociology student. Peter Braham has written a lively, comprehensive guide to the most important concepts in our discipline. It will become an essential student resource."
- David Silverman, Goldsmith's and King's College, University of London

"A triumphant tour de force... will be a useful, even essential tool for students and faculty. It is actually fascinating reading even for non-sociologists since these ideas (identity, the body, postmodernity?) impact all of us all the time."
- Anthony Synnott, Concordia University in Montreal

"An invaluable intellectual tool for students and faculty across the social sciences... fires the mind for continued learning."
- Joseph Oliver Boyd-Barrett, Bowling Green State University, Ohio

"A crisp and comprehensive guide to the discipline. The thirty-eight entries, covering history, substance and evaluation, thereby describe both conventional and new topics that define the syllabus of modern sociology. A valuable guide to both teachers and students."
- Bryan S. Turner, Presidential Professor of Sociology, CUNY USA

Sociology consists of a myriad of frequently confusing concepts. Key Concepts in Sociology provides a comprehensive, lively and clearly-written guide to the most important concepts in the subject. It includes both what might be regarded as 'classic' sociological concepts, such as 'class', 'bureaucracy' and 'community', as well as subjects that have become increasingly prominent in recent times, such as 'celebrity', 'risk' and 'the body'.

Each of the thirty-eight substantive entries:

  • defines the concept
  • provides a clear and compelling narrative
  • clarifies the main debates, perspectives and disagreements
  • gives advice on further reading

Key Concepts in Sociology should be the first choice for sociology students at all levels of learning.

Rezension: A glossary of key concepts was just the sort of thing I needed when I was a sociology student. Peter Braham has written a lively, comprehensive guide to the most important concepts in our discipline. It will become an essential student resource
David Silverman, Emeritus Professor, Goldsmith's and King's College, University of London

"Key concepts" is a triumphant tour de force. Analysing 38 critical ideas in sociology, and their principal proponents, this will be a useful, even essential tool for students and faculty. It is comprehensive, clearly written and, most important, links each concept to others: everything is connected, and also clarifies the main debates, arguments and disagreements. It is actually fascinating reading even for non-sociologists since these ideas (identity, the body, postmodernity?) impact all of us all the time
Anthony Synnott, Professor of Sociology in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Concordia University in Montreal

Peter Braham's incomparable assembly of nuanced and historically contextualized definitions, explanations and analyses of essential sociological terms (both classic and recent) represents an invaluable intellectual tool for students (both undergraduate and postgraduate) and faculty across the social sciences. For each concept, Braham constructs a clear and compelling narrative, buttressed by an impressive range of references and sage advice for further reading, that fires the mind for continued learning
Joseph Oliver Boyd-Barrett Professor of Journalism at Bowling Green State University, Ohio

Sociology is an exciting, if frequently confusing, subject, and the very notion of 'society', though familiar as a term in everyday life, is much disputed by sociologists. With entries ranging from 'alienation' to 'the body', Peter Braham's Key Concepts in Sociology offers a crisp and comprehensive guide to the discipline. The thirty-eight entries, covering history, substance and evaluation, thereby describe both conventional and new topics that define the syllabus of modern sociology. A valuable guide to both teachers and students
Bryan S. Turner, Presidential Professor of Sociology, CUNY USA
