Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Designed especially to meet the needs of beginners in all the social sciences, A New Dictionary of the Social Sciences follows its highly successful distinguished predecessor, A Dictionary of Sociology, first published in 1968. Many of the entries have been revised and updated to keep abreast of the recent proliferation in the vocabulary of the social sciences.

The entries include social psychological terms, terms in social and cultural anthropology, terms common to political science, social administration and social work. In the choice of words a generous definition of social science was employed, making the dictionary a very useful reference source for all beginners in the social sciences. Some terms are explained quite briefly while others are given lengthy treatment, according to the further assumptions that some sociological terms can imply. Thus long entries are given on words such as authority, consensus, phenomenology, role, social stratification, structuralism, whereas short and succinct entries suffice for words such as agnate, eidos, or mores. A number of short biographical sketches are also included. The contributors are all scholars working in universities, predominantly in the United Kingdom and the United States.

More than a glossary, A New Dictionary of the Social Sciences helps the student understand some of the theoretical considerations underlying the use of sociological terms, as well as something of their history, and therefore resembles an encyclopedia in its scope and depth of information.
