Summary: American Society: How It Really Works is sociology at its best, theoretically grounded, empirically based, and tightly argued. Wright and Rogers provide a unique introduction to the sociological perspective by focusing on four core American social values-efficiency, freedom, fairness, and democracy-and show the ways that American society does not measure up to its potential, give sociological reasons why this is the case, and use the sociological imagination to suggest possible futu
res for a more just and equitable society. The perfect book not only to introduce students to sociological analysis, but to engage them in the major issues of our time.
