Summary

This mainstream text by respected and authoritative authors Margaret Andersen and Howard Taylor is characterized by its focus on a broadly defined diversity, its remarkable integrated map program, its policy coverage, and its contemporary focus. This comprehensive text uses a rich research base as a foundation for a streamlined, highly accessible presentation of the basic principles of sociology. In every chapter, students explore research and data that illustrate how class, race-ethnicity, gender, age, geographic residence, and sexual orientation relate to the topics covered. Using policy and programs to illustrate research and theory, students are able to make sociological connections to their world. In addition, the book's extensive technology package has been expanded to include a FREE accompanying VIRTUAL EXPLORATIONS AND INTERACTIVE MAPS CD-ROM (featuring video clips and interactive map exercises), exciting new ways to expand the book's renowned social policy program emphasis (through Web links and new CNN video clips), video teaching tips on the Companion Web Site, and more.
