Edition 2nd ed.

Do we shape our culture, or does it shape us? What can sociology tell us about who we are and how we live today? This second edition explores such questions and other key debates related to these central sociological concepts. With clear explanations of theory and uncovering crucial issues in the field, this student-focused book carefully examines the relationship between the individual and society. It shows how identities and cultures are developed and maintained in today's society, as our worlds are increasingly influenced by the media, social networks and modern technology -- From back cover
