This month we have five copies of The New Sociology of Scotland by David McCrone to giveaway to our members.
Written by a leading sociologist of Scotland, this ground-breaking new introduction is a comprehensive account of the social, political, economic and cultural processes at work in contemporary Scottish society.
At a time of major uncertainty and transformation The New Sociology of Scotland explores every aspect of Scottish life. Placed firmly in the context of globalisation, the text examines a broad range of topics including race and ethnicity, social inequality, national identity, health, class, education, sport, media and culture, among many others. It also looks at the ramifications of recent political events such as British General Election of 2015, the Scottish parliament election of May 2016, and the Brexit referendum of June 2016. It uses learning features such as further reading and discussion questions to stimulate students to engage critically with issues raised.
Written in a lucid and accessible style, The New Sociology of Scotland is an indispensable guide for students of sociology and politics
