What is the connection between our personal troubles and underlying public issues? Public Sociology focuses on the utility and relevance of a sociological perspective to every aspect of social life. The aim is to encourage in students the ability to critically reflect upon the forces - both local and global - shaping their own lives and the communities in which they live. The previous two editions of Public Sociology have established the book as one of the most popular and accessible introductory sociology texts. The third edition has been thoroughly revised and updated to incorporate important themes in contemporary society including drug culture and digital technology. The authors reveal how the tools of sociological training and an empirically grounded sociological perspective are essential to understanding and engaging with contemporary Australian society. NEW TO THE THIRD EDITION: three new chapters on the sociology of drugs, digital sociology, and the social determinants of health and illness; all chapters thoroughly revised and some expanded; expanded glossary and updated introductory vignettes; enhanced book website with extra readings, YouTube clips, and case studies. 'With a firm base in the richest traditions of the discipline and with a remarkably approachable format, this book offers an excellent introduction to a wide array of sociology's concerns, making it suitable for all Australian social science undergraduates.' - Gary Wickham, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, Murdoch University 'A sophisticated yet accessible introduction to social identities, difference and inequalities, and social transformations.' - Jo Lindsay, Associate Professor in Sociology, Monash University 'Sweeping and lucid... communicates with ease and simplicity.' - Professor Toni Makkai, Dean, College of Arts and Social Sciences, Australian National University

Der Klassiker über den qualitativen Forschungsansatz der "Grounded Theory", geschrieben von den Entwicklern dieser Methode "Obwohl unser Buch sich in erster Linie an Soziologen richtet, glauben wir, dass es jedem nutzen kann, der daran interessiert ist, soziale Phänomene zu untersuchen politischer, pädagogischer, wirtschaftlicher, industrieller oder welcher Art auch immer." In der Tat ist "Grounded Theory" quer durch die wissenschaftlichen Disziplinen zum Standardbegriff der qualitativen Sozialforschung ge - worden. Die inzwischen zum Klassiker avancierte Arbeit von Glaser und Strauss eröffnet eine lehrbare und auch lernbare Forschungsstrategie. Das Konzept bietet eine Antwort auf das Problem, die oft schmerzlich empfundene Lücke zwischen empirischer Forschung und Theorie zu schliessen.
