Summary

Empirical Approaches to Sociologyaddresses significant sociological issues and demonstrates the interplay between sociological insight and empirical observations through a collection of readings. Using primary sources, the book gives readers a chance to see how research findings are interpreted and incorporated into sociological theory. The readings are rich in data, but not so technical that they require advanced math skills. These forty essays provide a broad overview of the field and represent a range of theoretical perspectives.
