This best-selling textbook returns with material on the most fundamental and fascinating issues in sociology today. The authors focus on the big picture, capturing students’ imaginations, while still providing the basic intricacies of theory and research needed in a good textbook. • Long praised for offering a more integrated understanding of sociology and encouraging more critical thinking than other texts. • Thoroughly introduces the basic approaches of sociology: functionalist, conflict, and symbolic-interactionist. Subsequent chapters use these theories to explain and integrate diverse topics, issues, and debates. • Includes dimensions of race, class, and gender in every chapter. • Fascinating special feature boxes engage students in the real world: "Personal Journeys into Sociology" presents the disciplines of leading scholars, "Student Life" explores sociology up close and personal in the lives of college students, and "Putting Sociology to Work" offers insights into the application of sociology into a wide array of careers. • Makes teaching easier with such pedagogical aids as real-life vignettes, chapter summaries and key terms, critical thinking and debate exercises, and a full glossary. • Offers helpful ancillary materials, including a test bank, instructor’s manual, and PowerPoint slides, available for fall 2011. • Provides three chapters from the original text free on Paradigm’s website to keep the book compact and affordable for students while offering a wide range of content.
