Summary

Three basic premises guide this highly successful introductory text - first, that theory and research must be both comprehensive and clear, second, that the text must show how sociology is relevant both to the study of society and to students' lives and third, that sociology can play a valuable role in teaching critical thinking skills. To that end, this well-respected text combines a balanced three-perspective approach with excellent student-oriented examples and distinctive social policy sections.
