This volume, Applied Social Sciences: Sociology, offers the reader a wide collection of quantitative and qualitative studies from different research areas such as medical sociology, political sociology, sociology of communication, sociology of culture, sociology of education, sociology of migration, sociology of population, and urban sociology. Theoretical and empirical papers attempt to explain complex social phenomena, including attitudes and values concerning economic recession, culture, electronic communication, employment and professional training, exclusion/inclusion of vulnerable groups, individual and group identity, migration, representations, school, stereotypes, and transition. The current volume offers theoretical and empirical material to a wide diversity of professionals from the socio-humanistic field. The information is structured in order to help the reader construct a specific image on the studied social phenomena. At the same time, the volume is not restrictive: it is also helpful and accessible to the general public, interested in interdisciplinary sociological approaches.vehicles and the brand impact speed estimation of an expensive (VW Polo) and cheap (Daewoo Matiz) car. ...
