Omtale Dead White Men and Other Important People
How do you know what you feel? Why are some bad habits so hard to shake? Why do people do what they are told? Are we players or puppets? What is 'society'? These are some of the questions that new undergraduate student Mila begins to ask as she sets out on her journey to find out what sociology is and why it matters. This is a novel of ideas, a textbook in which we follow Mila and her friends as they grapple with sociological ideas and problems. It offers refreshingly clear explanations of the most important aspects of sociology and exposes students to social theory and how it relates to our everyday experiences. Through Mila's thoughts and actions, and the events in her social and family life, students are encouraged to engage critically and personally with sociological ideas, and in the process learn how to interpret, use and reshape them. Bringing the subject to life with humour, storytelling and doodles, this revised second edition of Dead White Men and Other Important People remains the ideal introduction to sociological thinking for students at all levels.
