What is sociology? How do you 'do' sociology? Starting sociology can be daunting. This user-friendly introduction takes the reader on a quest towards a sociological understanding of the world we live in. Using contemporary examples, The Sociological Quest asks what is distinctive about the way sociologists view society. Evan Willis shows that they are concerned with the relationship between the individual and society, and that a sociological analysis involves an approach which is historical, cultural, structural and critical. This third edition includes new material on globalisation, identity and the Internet, and remains essential preliminary reading for new students of sociology.
