This is a 4th edition of New Zealand’s leading sociology textbook. The book introduces sociological concepts and methods before investigating key areas of sociology (class, race, gender, family life, health, death, work, the city,populations, technology, religion, leisure and crime) through the New Zealand experience.
The book includes many useful pedagogical features:
key word definitions and push text in the margins

This 4th edition has been revised and rewritten throughout by a renewed author team. Key changes include:
data, examples and case studies completely updated
chapters re-ordered and a new chapter on death added to reflect requests from departments using the book as a teaching text
more emphasis on tikanga and kaupapa Māori
refreshed photograph selection with a local focus.
