Hi there,

I am a final year Sociology student at the University of Bath.

That's great you want to do further reading before you start your course, I would recommend if you don't study Sociology or Politics currently looking at some A Level textbooks, which can give you a good introduction to the topic.

I am not as aware of Politics books, but the Sociology textbook by Anthony Giddens is a good read and a book I have referred to quite a bit at university. I would also recommend the Sociology textbook by James Fulcher and John Scott.

If you have any more questions, about studying Sociology at University, please feel free to ask

Hello! I did my degree in Sociology, currently teaching social sciences.

You might get recommendations for the text book by Haralambos and Holborn which is very good for levels 3 and 4, although it over simplifies some of the more complicated stuff for a higher level.

A great introduction to symobolic interactionism is 'presentation of the self in everyday life' by Erving Goffman, although his book 'Asylums' is probably the most famous
