About the Author

Les Back is Professor of Sociology at Goldsmiths College, University of London. He is a co-editor of The Auditory Culture Reader.


'This is a wise and humane piece of writing, concerned to break out of sociology's academic straitjacket and speak to a wide audience.' Stuart Sim, New Humanist 'The Art of Listening is a rare book in its commitment to vitalize an ethical, global sociology for the twenty-first century. Students are encouraging their parents to read it. Everyone needs this book -- especially jaded academics.' Sanjay Sharma, British Journal of Sociology 'A sparkling, thought-provoking book that challenges many of our assumptions as researchers and students'. David Bissell, University of Brighton
