Description:

Cinematic Sociology is a one-of-a-kind resource that helps students to view films sociologically while also providing much needed pedagogy for teaching sociology through film. In this engaging text the authors take readers beyond watching movies and help them see films sociologically while also developing critical thinking and analytical skills that will be useful in college coursework and beyond. The book’s 15 essays from expert scholars in sociology and cultural studies explore the ways social life is presented-distorted, magnified, or politicized- in popular film.
