Yesterday, the third edition of Sociology: The Basics was published. It started life back in 2010, and has been translated into six languages: in South Korea, Indonesia, Portuguese / Brazil, Chinese, Japanese and Spanish/Mexico.
The new edition of Basics updates everything but keeps the structure very much the same. It might even be called the Covid-19 edition because I certainly pay attention to this, wondering how sociology will change because of it and what sociology has to offer in its understanding. I focus especially on the both the ways Covd-19 reveals the growing inequalities in the world, and the ways it may impact on world futures.
I have not yet fully updated the website to accompany it. But am working on it and hope it will be done before 2022.
