Summary

This revised edition of Richard T. Schaefers Sociology: A Brief Introduction provides students with a comprehensive, up-to-date presentation of sociology. Students learn to think critically about society and their own lives from a wide range of classical and contemporary perspectives.

Combining balanced coverage of theory with current research findings, examples that students can relate to, and abundant learning aids and exercises, the new edition continues to encourage the development of sociological imagination.

Greater coverage of globalization through a new chapter and boxes focusing on Social Change in the Global Community help remove ethnocentric blinders and teaches students to think globally about issues and policies.

worth reading March 20, 2011

This textbook offers a variety of way to learn sociology; through pictures, text, captions and stories. It's very easily structured for reading. It accompanies many pictures along with the text. At the end of every section there is a perfect review of the chapter and the definitions to the key terms. Every chapter has a main focus to help the reader understand sociology better. Also has an easy to read font. I like how it breaks up information, and shows examples and/or case studies. I like the images and how it relates the topics being discussed to what's going on in the world. Text books should all be like this. It makes learning easy and fun.
