Modernity: An Introduction to Modern Sciences is a comprehensive, well written and stimulating textbook which provides an introduction to the history and sociology of modern society, and to ideas and theories about it. It has been written specifically for students and readers who have no prior knowledge of sociology, and is designed to be used in a variety of social science courses in universities and colleges.The three parts of the book focus successively on the formation, consolidation and futures of modernity. Four major social processes are identified and examined in Part 1: The social, the cultural, the political and the economic. In Part II these processes provide the framework for an analysis of developed industrial societies and how they work. In Part III they form the basis for identifying and examining the emergent social forces and oppositional trends that are radically re-shaping modern societies today. This is the widest-ranging introduction to the nature of modern societies and will be invaluable to introductory and post-introductory students of sociology.
