Written by the best-selling author of THE PRACTICE OF SOCIAL RESEARCH, this brief book pocketbook gives students a quick overview of fundamental sociological concepts. True to the Babbie trademark, this book makes abstract concepts concrete and understandable for students via Babbie's informal, conversational writing style and choice of examples.

  • Substantially expanded and revised the final chapter on global issues to include discussion of today's global issues and to reflect recent political and economic changes.
  • Created new appendix "The Essential Wisdom of Sociology" which reprints Babbie's article from the journal, Teaching Sociology and subsequent comments on the subject from other sociologists. This appendix does two main things: re-enforces the book's main ideas and gives students a chance to critique an exchange of ideas among sociologists.
  • Updated data and tables throughout drawing from the latest Census data.
  • Updated and revised some of the examples and references throughout.
  • Conclusion of glossary and suggested readings.
