    I've come across in a few of my a level sociology textbooks a sociologist will be referred to as Gerwitz ET AL for example. Does anyone know what the `et al` means and why is it necessary? do I have to use `et al` when referencing a socioologist? thank you in advance for any help.

    it is a Latin expression meaning and others... so you might be reading "Patriarchy And The Quotidian Oppression of Women" by Wragg, Tagge and Bobteyle; this could be referred to as by Wragg et al
