Social science is the field of study concerned with society and human behaviours.

These include: anthropology, archaeology, criminology, economics, history, linguistics, communication, political science and international relations, sociology, geography, law, and psychology.

The term may however be used in the specific context of referring to the original science of society established in 19th century sociology.

Kathryn, Australia

The books have just arrived and I am very pleased with them. Your efforts, as always, are most appreciated.

John, Canada

The books have arrived safely!  They are all magnificent! I don't know how to thank you sufficiently for your generosity in giving me a very special discount for the three books.  If you really meant it when you said the discount is a Christmas present, I must say it truly is a superb gift from the kindhearted Santa Katherine! Your kind attention is another thing to commend.  Thank you indeed.   Also, I am impressed with the delivery.  It was so quick that i was dumbstruck when told early today i have a parcel from England at the mailroom.  Another thanks for this nice service. I could go on forever to say how your great services have fascinated me, but I know you are too busy for that.To end my note, please accept my sincere thanks for everything you did.  I will keep checking your inventory and make more purchases.

Rachot, Thailand
