This book is called Doing Sociology because it shows you how to use project work to develop your sociological understanding. It is organised around the main approaches to data collection: social surveys, observation, in-depth interviews, secondary data analysis and experimentation. Doing Sociology is thus about how to do sociological research. It takes a realistic view about what can be achieved in an introductory sociology project.
