Perfect!!!  June 28, 2011

The textbook is filled with moving photographs of the plights of people around our country and the world. It is very informative in an easy to read and digest manner. The wording is extremely user friendly with interesting facts on sociological issues around the world. The authors have kept this textbook completely up to date, including data from the most recent Census Bureau surveys, Bureau of Justice Statistics, General Social Survey and other sources. As an engineering student I surprised myself and really enjoyed this textbook. The price beats what most college bookstores charge. I rented this rental textbook from ecampus and I'm glad to receive it in time in a great condition. I have never had any problems with ecampus.

Sociology : The Core: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.


Highly respected for its quality scholarship and its focused, straightforward approach to Sociology, the seventh edition of Sociology: The Core returns to the core concept with a tighter, briefer, more accessible presentation and a very accessible price. Michael Hughes, of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, and Carolyn Kroehler, a professional writer, have revised the work of James Vander Zanden, who is now Emeritus Professor of the Ohlo State University.

As in the previous editions, the functionalist, conflict and interactionist perspectives are applied throughout the book, allowing students to develop a solid understanding of the major sociological perspectives and their applications to the topics covered.

Sociology: The Core seeks to make sociology come alive as a vital and exciting field, to relate principles to real-world circumstances, and to attune students to the dynamic processes of our rapidly changing contemporary society.

The authors have kept this book completely up to date, including data from the most recent Census Bureau surveys, Bureau of Justice Statistics, General Social Survey and other sources. New student examples capitalize on students' desire to read about issues of interest to them.
