Promise of Sociology, The - The Classical Tradition and Contemporary Sociological Thinking

Unlike most introductory texts that take a topical approach to studying sociology, this smart, challenging, and accessibly written text looks at the core principles of the discipline, making links to a contemporary context.

Both students and instructors will find in these pages a fresh and original approach to teaching sociology. Beamish begins by providing a sociological profile of today`s students, juxtaposing their collective biography against the current historical moment. He builds on this discussion by introducing Mills`s concept of the sociological imagination and outlining a method for thinking sociologically; then, he uses Hitchcock`s film Psycho to illustrate the difference between psychological and sociological analysis. Having established the usefulness of sociological thinking, Beamish moves back to the classical theorists, outlining in depth their important contributions to sociology. He concludes the book by applying concepts from the classical tradition to a sociological discussion of culture—ending with an analysis of Bob Dylan`s artistry to illustrate how these concepts have an enduring quality in contemporary times.

"Beamish has written an engaging introduction to sociology that is sweeping in its ambitions, scope, and delivery. He makes complex ideas understandable and grounded and he offers powerful insights into how the world is organized, why it is changing, and where students might fit with all of this. This is sociology as it should be introduced — gripping and elucidating." (Neil Guppy, University of British Columbia)
