Written by Abercrombie (emer., Univ. of Lancaster), Hill (Royal Holloway, Univ. of London), and Turner (National Univ. of Singapore), this portable, pocket-size book features concise entries for sociological terms. It is designed as a ready reference resource. The new edition reflects social changes in the post-9/11 era, including the globalization of terrorist acts and other crimes. Printed in Great Britain, the volume uses British examples of culture and society in some of the descriptive entries. Included in the text are cross-references and a few statistical tables. This book can serve as a starting point for novices in the sociological field, and as a brief refresher for more experienced readers as well. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through graduate students. S. L. Pham Kutztown University of Pennsylvania
