Social Things: An Introduction to the Sociological Life

Front Cover
Rowman & Littlefield, 2008 - Social Science - 231 pages
The fourth edition of Social Things is as poignant and readable as ever with new material to help introduce sociology as a discipline and a way of life to a new generation of students and readers of all ages. As before, Lemert captivates his readers by helping them understand that, as he puts it, _sociology is, first of all, a thing lived_ which makes us all practical sociologists.
