This is a textbook with a twist. Written as a novel, from the perspective of Mila, a student new to Sociology, it is a brilliantly engaging introduction to the discipline and to the fundamental questions that have exercised the minds of the most important sociological thinkers. It offers refreshingly clear explanations of the most important aspects of Sociology and exposes students to social theory and how it relates to our everyday experiences. Students are encouraged to engage critically and personally with sociological ideas, and in the process learn how to interpret, use and reshape them.

This revised second edition offers an ideal alternative to traditional texts for introductory Sociology modules. It is also highly valuable for modules on Sociological and Social Theory.
