    Abstract

    Book synopsis: Navigating a career in the discipline of sociology can be very challenging, yet it is intensely rewarding. Sociologists’ Tales is the first book to bring together the thoughts and experiences of key UK sociologists from different generations of British sociology, many internationally recognised, reflecting on why they have chosen a career in sociology, how they have managed to do it and what advice they would offer the next generation. This unique volume provides an understanding of sociology and its importance, and will have wide appeal among students and young sociologists thinking about their future.
