Sociology of Education (1st Edition)
The book written by Nenad Suzić, a professor at the Faculty of Philosophy in Banjaluka, with the traditional title “Sociology of Education”, represents not only the first study in this field in the Republic of Srpska, but also the first contribution to the debate about education for democracy, although he does not use this term explicitly in the text. “Education for democracy” will not be found in a heading or a subheading, but it is implicitly imbedded into each line and letter of this valuable, interesting, educative book written in a refined style. Moreover, education for democracy is the essence, message and theoretical preoccupation of Mr. Suzić’s work. What is it about? Certainly, education itself, i.e. general education, helps a man to find his way in more and more complicated labyrinths of modern politics, as Professor Suzić has indicated well in the chapter “The Role of Education in Understanding the Influence of Social Processes”. Finally, the book “Sociology of Education” written by Professor Nenad Suzić, seems to be, not only in the chapters already referred to inthis book but as a whole, a unique prologue of education for democracy; this makes it universally relevant and beyond a narrow academic purpose.
