Overview of course

Politics and sociology are intimately related. This short course will explore the ways in which sociologists of different political convictions have viewed society and issues such as economics, crime, gender, employment etc. Alongside sociologists, this course will also touch on psychologists, philosophers, ethicists and others who have influenced the subject.
