I am a first year law student and I would love to cultivate my passion in the field of sociology in my free time. I am aware that it is a very broad field and it has several sub topics within. However, in order to go further than the A level curriculum while still having a general overview rather learn more about than separate standpoints (as I will not have time for this) what textbooks at university level would you recommend to me? I'm also not particularly keen in broadening my knowledge in terms of research methods.

Hiya!

That is such a nice idea to broaden your knowledge! My flatmate studies sociology and these are the general textbooks/ must reads that she has told me to recommend to you!

* Thinking Sociologically by Zygmunt Bauman and Tim May
* The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Frederick Engels
* Introduction to Sociological Theory - Theorists, concepts and their applicability to the twenty-first century by Michelle Dillon

Hope these can be a good start to help your passion for sociology! Sam- Official Student Rep
