Summary

The first edition of Alexander and Thompson's Contemporary Introduction to Sociologywas the first truly new introduction to sociology textbook in decades. Written by two leading sociologists at the cutting edge of theory and research, the text reflected the idioms and interests of contemporary American life and global social issues.

Paradigm Publishers is now pleased to announce the 2nd edition of this text,with new co-author Laura D. Edles. It continues to invite students to reflect upon their lives within the context of the combustible leap from modern to postmodern life. The authors show how culture is central to understanding many world problems as they challenge readers to confront the risks and potentialities of a postmodern era in which the futures of both the physical and social environment seem uncertain. As culture rapidly changes in the 21st century, the authors have successfully incorporated these nuances into their new edition.


New to the 2nd edition:

Speaks to students using examples ranging from popular culture to new media technologies.

Covers such relevant topics as labor, the economy, and social media including Facebook and Twitter.

Reaches a larger audience with new data on women, gender, and transgender issues.

Makes connections between timely issues and sociological theory using theme boxes.

Vividly illustrates sociological issues with new photos.

Helps students understand material through additional study questions in each chapter.


*A free electronic Instructor's Manual with test questions is available to professors for examination and use upon adoption.*
