We live today-at the beginning of the twentieth century-in a world that is intensely worrying, yet full of
the most extraordinary promise for the future. It is a world awash with change, marked by deep conflicts,
tensions and social divisions, as well as by the destructive onslaught of modern technology on the natural
environment. Yet we have possibility of controlling our destiny and shaping our lives for the better that
would have been unimaginable to earlier generations.
How did this world come about? Why are our conditions of life so different from those of our parents and
grandparents? What directions change will take in future? These questions are the prime concern of
sociology, a field of study that consequently has a fundamental role in modern technological life.
As a student of Sociology you are expected to understand social world in a better way. The diverse
impacts of social world on an individual’s life are multidimensional. In this regard, you are given a chance
