Synopsis

The second edition of Questioning Sociology: Canadian Perspectives offers a collection of twenty-three readings that encourage students to challenge commonplace assumptions and to reflect critically on the social world they inhabit. Contributed by prominent Canadian scholars, these readings explore provocative sociological questions and are designed to lead students into debates about key social and theoretical topics. Also covering a number of important Canadian issues, including sovereignty for Quebec and Indigenous peoples, maritime economic transition, and immigration and citizenship, this text prompts students to engage thoughtfully with issues that are relevant to their lives. In doing so, it encourages readers to develop a critical 'sociological imagination'. This edition features new chapters on family, mental illness, the environment, women in prison, media, and 'deserted questions' in sociology. Covering a range of important sociological topics and offering highly accessible pedagogy, this text is ideal for students who are new to the study of sociology.
