New Blackwell Encyclopedia of Sociology - Online and Print Versions
Published in December 2006, the Blackwell Encyclopedia of Sociology is a major new reference source in sociology. The 11-volume print version contains 1,800 entries written by an international team of scholars. The complete work contains approximately 3.5 million words over 6,000 pages. Entries range from short definitions of key terms to extended explorations of major topics. The subject coverage extends from themes that have historically defined the discipline to more recent developments. Also included are introductions to sociological theories and research that have developed outside of the United States and Western Europe. The online version is identical in content to the print version, with powerful searching and browsing features, hyperlinked cross-references, and regular updates throughout the year. The print version is available in the Library's Reference Collection [Call Number: REF HM425.B53].
