A Sociological Approach to Social Problems, Hardback Book

A Sociological Approach to Social Problems Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Social Theory series


The topics covered in this book are directly related to much of the misunderstanding of what sociology is about.

It is usual nowadays to label as sociological any discussion concerned, however loosely, with `Society'.

But a careful reading of Mr Timms' treatment of the problem areas he has chosen should make clear the difference between this use of the adjective in everyday speech, and its more vigorous technical use.

In dealing with his subject Mr Timms makes use of the concepts of sociology such as `role', `norms', `social control', `class', and `family'.
