Summary: ''Unlike most textbooks that I have read, the breadth and depth of coverage is very impressive. This text forces the students deep into the topics covered and challenges them to see the interconnectedness of them.'' - Keith Kerr, Texas A&M University ''I love the global emphasis, the applied material, and the emphasis on solutions to social problems.'' - Gina Carreno, Florida Atlantic University ''Finally...a text that brings Sociology to life! .... This is so w
ell written I'm not sure the students will even realize they are learning theory!'' - Dr. Martha Shockey, St. Louis University Our Social World: Introduction to Sociology introduces the discipline of sociology to the contemporary student and provides an integrated, comprehendible framework from which to view the world. In each chapter, authors Jeanne H. Ballantine and Keith A. Roberts provide an organizing theme that is not exclusively tied to one theoretical paradigm to help students see relationships between topics. Although several books address global issues, Our Social World presents the perspective of students living in the larger global world. Key Features: Presents ''The Social World Model'' in each chapter: This organizing framework helps avoid introductory sociology as a group of disparate topics and moves systematically from micro to macro levels of analysis. Offers a strong global focus: A global perspective is integrated into each chapter to encourage students to think of global society as a logical extension of their own micro world. Illustrates the practical side of sociology: Examples are given of what sociologists actually do, as well as policy issues that sociologists influence. Encourages critical thinking: This book provides various research strategies and illustrates concrete examples of the method being used to help students develop a more sophisticated epistemology. Accompanied by High Quality Ancillaries: IRCD: Instructor's Resources on CD-ROM are available to all adopters and include classroom lecture ideas, active learning projects, options for evaluating students Powerpoints, a test bank with multiple choice, short answer, and essay questions, and more.
