New Books

This page was created on August 15th, 2011 and is reserved for TASA members to include details of their publications. At least one of the authors or editors (named on the cover) must be a member of TASA and the content needs to be about some aspect of Australian sociology (broadly defined), including textbooks. To keep the site up-to-date, books must have been published in the current year. Books will be displayed on this page for approximately 3 months, after which time brief details will be transferred to the Sociology Resource section of TASAweb where they will be displayed in chronological order.

To have your New Book listed on this page, please forward the book details, including a brief outline, picture of the cover and a link to the publisher’s website to admin@tasa.org.au.
