Punch S, Marsh I, Keating M & Harden J (eds.) (2013) Sociology: Making Sense of Society, 5th ed. London: Pearson. http://www.pearsoned.co.uk/bookshop/detail.asp?item=100000000408986

The fifth edition of Sociology: Making Sense of Society retains the highly praised four-part structure and style of the fourth edition, and through this explores the diversity, contradictions and challenges we face in our social world. This essential and authoritative text lays the foundations for a theoretically and methodologically strong understanding of sociology. Key topics are then examined in an accessible but thorough way, encouraging reflection within a wide social, cultural and historical context. Fascinating topical examples from around the world help to contextualise and apply sociological thinking to our own lives. Crucially, this text frequently asks you to consider your position in the world, drawing you into the debates and conveying the excitement of studying sociology.
