Summary

This best-selling applied, comprehensive book highlights the relevance of sociology by including a diverse collection of theories, research, and ''lived experiences'' that accurately mirror the diversity in society itself. The author�s vivid, personal writing style engages readers by using compelling everyday examples that make sociology particularly relevant for today�s diverse students. Kendall�s text is acclaimed in the field for being the first textbook to integrate race, class, and gender issues, and for its thorough presentation of sociological theory, which includes diverse theoretical viewpoints such as feminist and postmodernist theory.
