New book: Seeing Politics Differently by Karen Stanbridge and Howard Ramos

Seeing Politics Differently
A Brief Introduction to Political Sociology
Karen Stanbridge and Howard Ramos
Oxford University Press
Series : Themes in Canadian Sociology

Seeing Politics Differently introduces students to political sociology - the study of how power is distributed within society. Arguing that politics is about much more than the debates and decisions of government, this concise text reveals how political struggles are inextricably tied to everyday life. Through thoughtful discussions of key perspectives and approaches, the authors demonstrate the importance of questioning who holds power in our society, where that power comes from, and how individuals and groups can bring about change.
