Abstract

This chapter discusses race, ethnicity and nationalism. It has been published as part of the fourth edition of this introductory text to Sociology which continues to approach the discipline in an accessible but rigorous way. A solid theoretical and methodological introduction is followed by in-depth coverage of social insitutions and divisions. Brand new chapters cover the following issues: 'Race, Ethnicity and Nationalism', 'Environment', 'Disability and the Body', 'Global Divisions', 'Families and Households', 'Health, Illness and the Body', and 'Religion'. All other chapters have been fully revised. Theory is illustrated and applied through contemporary examples, and students are also provided with reflective opportunities throughout. The text is highly illustrated in full colour, with images, tables and empirical data, and students are encouraged to engage with excerpts of primary readings. Substantial case studies, 'closer look' boxes and activities afford opportunities for discussion, extension and seminar work. Sociology: making sense of society remains essential reading for students of sociology, criminology, social policy, social work, cultural studies, media studies, anthropology and other related subjects.
