By A Customer on March 29, 2000
Format: Paperback
This book is very enlightening in lots of issues concerning Sociology. From the new theories to the criticism of the classical. From the classical problems in sociology to new ones, such as the Web, the body or the individualism in our society. It is also a good handbook. It can be used almost as a reference book. A very good book to everyone concerned with the new ways for sociology, whether they are teachers or students.
