Adapted from Henslins best-selling comprehensive hardback text, Core Concepts provides in-depth coverage of ten high-priority topics that are the foundation of many introductory sociology courses. This unique paperback offers a concise and economical format without sacrificing depth of coverage. Unlike a brief or essentials text, the ten chapters that make up Core Concepts are not edited down from a longer book. Instead, they provide full coverage of those topics that instructors emphasize the most in a one-semester or one-term introductory sociology course. And like Henslins other texts, it features the author's familiar down-to-earth approach and personal writing style that highlight the sociology of everyday life. With wit, personal reflection, and illuminating examples, Henslin shares with readers a passion for sociology unmatched by any other introductory text.
