Summary

This compelling reader presents a balance of classic and contemporary readings that professors teaching the course find important. The emphasis of the collection is on articles that students will both understand and find intriguing. The collection is less rigid than the other readers now on the market and includes articles with a variety of styles and
perspectives. Like the Andersen/Taylor introduction to sociology textbooks, this reader has a strong focus on diversity. Five themes run throughout book: classical sociological theory, contemporary research, diversity, globalization, and the application of the sociological perspective.
