Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This is a textbook with a twist. Written as a novel, it follows the story of Mila, a new student who is making it her mission to find out what makes sociology so important. Grappling with the subject's big ideas, Mila tests out sociological themes, debates and theories through conversations with new university friends and family back at home. As she begins to understand how sociology can be applied to everyday experiences, she starts to look at the world around her in a new light. This book gives brilliantly clear explanations of the most important aspects of sociology. It is the perfect introduction to sociological thinking for students of all abilities.
