The SAGE Glossary of the Social and Behavioral Sciences provides students with a highly accessible, curriculum-driven reference work, both in print and on-line, defining the major terms needed to achieve fluency in the social and behavioral sciences.

Comprehensive and inclusive, its interdisciplinary scope covers such varied fields as anthropology, communication and media studies, criminal justice, economics, education, geography, human services, management, political science, psychology, and sociology. In addition, while not a discipline, methodology is at the core of these fields and thus receives due and equal consideration.

While broad in scope, it's also compact, accessible, and affordable. The work is organized in A-to-Z fashion and kept to a single volume of 616 pages.
