The Study of Society, Hardback Book


In this book, Dr Heasman begins by stating some central questions and answers concerning sociology and how we are to set about studying society.

It goes on to deal with family groupings and social differences; with education and the part it plays in socialization; with the meaning and the importance of social differences; and with the relative importance of work and leisure and the ways in which leisure can be used.

It considers the effects of the change in the size of the population in the last hundred years upon social life in Britain, examines the problems of social change and looks at order in society and the way it is affected by different forms and aspects of government.

The result is a thorough, comprehensive, but at all times lucid, introduction to the subject.
