Description
This new edition of an already classic reference work is a compendium of the entire range of the social sciences. Its more than 500 entries (over half are new or substantially revised) encompass anthropology, economics, education, government and politics, law and criminology, linguistics, psychology, social work, sociology, women's studies and beyond. Related fields are covered in depth and the philosophy of the social sciences is addressed, as are theories, methodology and areas of study. Profiles of key figures and schools of thought are provided, and this edition includes entries on such innovative topics as ethnic relations, information society, language and culture, space and pornography. Written by an international team of contributors, the volume will appeal to anyone with a serious interest in contemporary academic thinking about the individual in society.
