Abstract

[About the book]

"The Uses of Sociology" discusses whether sociological knowledge is important. It introduces students to the main ways in which sociology is practised in the world and explores the major debates concerning its social purposes. Comparing and contrasting different traditions of sociological thought, the authors examine the different modes in which they engage with the social. Questions considered include the relevance of sociological knowledge to government, the public sphere, the media, economic life, social movements, 'race' and ethnicity. The text also discusses related issues, such as whether sociology is a science or a cultural endeavour, and whether sociological research and analysis can be detached and unbiased.
