I am thinking of studying sociology at a postgraduate level. I have never studied anything much like sociology before. First I want to be inspired by some academic works that really set the world ablaze. Any suggestions? What I really want to get out of it is an understanding of the methods of sociologists, without being put to sleep. Textbooks, bestsellers, academic publications all welcome. Thanks.
