Developed by Tony Fitzgerald, this site functions as a clearinghouse for different materials on the various primary areas and subfields of the discipline of sociology. While not every subfield is covered in great depth, the site definitely provides a broad-stroke introduction to the general practice of sociology. The two reference sections, titled SocioNews and SocioQuote are worthy places to start looking around on this site. Socionews provides daily updates of news items relevant to various aspects of sociology. Recent items include pieces on Anthony Giddens, feminist ideology in the Islamic world, and the culture of government. The SocioQuote section provides a quote (updated every 15 seconds) from a noted sociologist or related person on a host of topics such as technology, feminist sociology, or cultural development. The site also contains some valuable portals, that organize news pieces and other relevant materials under the broad themes of globalization and Palestine, among others.
