This is an excellent introduction to a fascinating and budding field. Sociolinguistics is basically the study of how language interacts with society, and how it varies within and between societies. It is perhaps the more modern version of dialectology, though dialectology is still around, and Trudgill has written several other books in that field. But he fully understands the differences, and his dual expertise makes some sections of the book more interesting.
