Writing in Sociology

With humor and empathy, this handbook provides undergraduate and early-career graduate students guidance in sociological writing of all kinds. It offers unusual approaches to developing ideas into research questions, utilizing research literature, constructing research papers, and completing different kinds of course writing (including case studies, theory papers, and applied social science projects). The book has the tone of Becker's Writing For Social Scientists , but is more targeted to the undergraduate or early-career graduate student struggling with a first research paper. By focusing on how to think about the goals and strategies implicit in each section of a writing project, this book provides accessible advise to novice sociological writers.
