Summary

This revised edition of Richard T. Schaefer'sSociology: A Brief Introductionprovides students with a comprehensive, up-to-date presentation of sociology. Students learn to think critically about society and their own lives from a wide range of classical and contemporary perspectives. Combining balanced coverage of theory with current research findings, examples that students can relate to, and abundant learning aids and exercises, the new edition continues to encourage the development of sociological imagination. Greater coverage of globalization through a new chapter and boxes focusing on “Social Change in the Global Community” help remove ethnocentric blinders and teaches students to think globally about issues and policies.
