Over the past few days, I have been busy with writing up this summary of Kate Nash's Contemporary Political Sociology: Globalisation, Politics and Power (2nd edition). Although the summary came out much longer than I had initially expected, it was a fun process to learn about the fundamental ideas in Political Sociology – the politics course I am taking this term. One of the main focus of this book is the shift of the field toward cultural politics, which I felt she explained quite well. I personally really enjoyed the chapter on globalisation and felt many of the contradictory arguments presented were equally sensible: a worthy debate. This book is great for an introduction to the discipline, although I have been told it is much less empirical than most other readings for the course.
P.S. Apologies for any typos!
