Following in the tradition of the affordably priced and much-praised World of... series, comes another winner for students and patrons. World of Sociology meets a growing need for current information that is relevant for the core sociology and related cross-curricular studies in psychology, history, geography, anthropology, economics and political science. It also has relevance for many of the related popular electives and current events of today as well as those interested in understanding human behavior in society.

World of Sociology is a comprehensive, subject-specific guide to the concepts, theories, discoveries, developments and pioneers related to the field of sociology. Coverage includes approximately 1,250 alphabetically arranged topical essays, definitions and biographies, intelligently organized and written in clear, concise and easy-to-understand language. World of Sociology also provides the same type of clear cross-references and extensive indexing reviewers have praised in the science World of... titles series. It includes a subject index, nationality/ethnic origin index and gender index as well as approximately 350 photographs and illustrations, general timeline and general bibliography. Unlike comparable sources, the coverage is balanced with special attention given to women, minorities and the lesser-known leaders in the field of sociology.
