Political Sociology is designed to introduce undergraduate students to “core” concepts and research in political sociology.  The authors highlight how sociologists have organized the study of politics into conceptual frameworks, and how each of these frameworks fosters a sociological perspective on power and politics in society.  This includes discussing how these frameworks can be applied to understanding current issues and other “real life” aspects of politics. The authors connect with students by engaging them in activities where they complete their own applications of theory, hypothesis testing, and forms of inquiry.
