Living Sociology intends to bridge the gap between two sets of literature--the social problems textbook and service learning guidebooks. The goal of this text is to create a social problems text that will inspire students and faculty to embrace the discipline of sociology while considering to the fullest extent the ways in which sociological analysis and practice can be applied to the real world. By implementing service learning as a pedagogical approach for just such a synthesis, the book also infuses this "hot and trendy" method of teaching with a disciplinary rigor and a set of analytical tools.
