The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to Sociology

The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to Sociology presents a comprehensive and balanced overview of the major topics and emerging trends in the discipline of sociology today. Original chapters – carefully compiled and edited by award-winning sociology professor George Ritzer – represent the most cutting-edge work by leading sociological thinkers and bright emerging scholars from around the globe. After providing insights into research methods and theoretical foundations of classic and contemporary sociology, a variety of established sociological issues are explored – ranging from culture and crime to sexuality and politics. A final section of chapters feature coverage of some of the most cutting edge new sociological considerations, including the future of capitalism, terrorism, and emerging technologies. Reflecting the most innovative ideas and trends shaping the contemporary state of the discipline, The Wiley-Blackwell Companion to Sociology boldly paves the way for the future of the sociological thought.
