Description
Fundamentals of Sociology is an introduction to the definition, methods and fundamental concepts of sociology. The book prepares the ground for studying the origins and structures of society and social groups in correlation with other social sciences. In doing so, the author looks into the most important facet of social structure—social institutions—which in their varied forms act as agents of socialization and social control.
Dwelling upon key issues in sociology, this book focuses on:
•    The questions of social evolution and progress,
•    The role played by heredity, environment and personality,
•    The concerns raised about racial problems, social stratification, and the
     order of culture and civilization, and
•    The significant changes that have occurred in the economic system and
      industry, population, and food supply.
A comprehensive work, this book for over four decades has had a definitive influence on the discipline of sociology. It will continue to be immensely useful to students and teachers.
