According to the American Sociological Association sociology 
      is the study of social life, social change, and the social causes 
      and consequences of human behavior.  Sociologists investigate 
      the structure of groups, organizations, and societies, and how
      people interact within these contexts.

      Since all human behavior is social, the subject matter of 
      sociology ranges from the intimate family to the hostile mob; 
      from organized crime to religious cults; from the divisions 
      of race, gender, and social class to the shared beliefs of 
      a common culture; and from the sociology of work to the 
      sociology of sport. In fact, few fields have such broad 
      scope and relevance for research, theory, and application 
      of knowledge.
