  • A global/cross-cultural orientation pervades each topic and chapter in the book. In most chapters a separate section analyzes how peoples around the world live, encouraging students to compare U.S. society and social conditions with societies and conditions around the world in order to gain a better understanding of both.
  • Clear, lively writing has been cited as this book's hallmark feature, inviting students into the subject and keeping them engaged.
  • There is thorough and balanced coverage of theoretical perspectives in every chapter. There are sections in each chapter which examine the topic under the lens of the three perspectives (and feminist theory, when applicable), capsulizing the argument, and evaluating the strengths and weaknesses of the perspectives' explanations.
  • New material on social diversity discusses differences among four cultural groups -- Native Americans, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans -- on various topics, such as socialization, aging, education, economics, religion and politics.
  • New data and research in text, illustrations, tables, reference lists, and boxed readings are found throughout.
  • There are boxed readings in four categories: Global Village, Multiculturalism in the U.S.A., Applied Sociology, and Cutting Edge. Also, discussion and review questions for boxed readings are included
  • The abundant pedagogy contributes to student success, including: "Myths & Realities" chapter openers, Questions for Discussion and Review (at the ends of sections and boxed readings), key terms defined and in bold when introduced and at the end of chapters and in the end of the book glossary.
  • A new Website, developed for students and instructors using Sociology, 5/e, provides chapter topics and links, practice tests, visuals to be downloaded for classroom presentation and much more.
