‘There is no better single-volume compilation for an up-to-date, readable and authoritative source of definitions, summaries and references’ – A. H. Halsey, University of Oxford

Over 2,000 entries

A consistent best-seller, this wide-ranging and authoritative dictionary covers terminology, concepts, and thinkers in the field of sociology, as well as from the related fields of psychology, economics, anthropology, philosophy, and political science.

For this fourth edition, Professor John Scott has conducted a thorough review of all entries to ensure that they are concise, focused, and up to date. Revisions reflect current intellectual debates and social conditions, particularly in relation to global and multi-cultural issues. New entries by a range of expert contributors cover relevant contemporary concepts, such as climate change, social media, terrorism, and intersectionality, as well as key living sociologists.

An invaluable introduction to sociology for beginners, and an essential source of reference for more advanced students and teachers.
