What is included with this book?
This revised edition of Tischler's INTRODUCTION TO SOCIOLOGY continues a tradition of providing a proven and comprehensive textbook to students and professors at a lower, very affordable price. This value is enhanced in the "Media Edition" with the inclusion of an interactive student CD-ROM containing a chapter-by-chapter study guide,activities for further exploration and reinforcement of sociological concepts, plus the ASA award winning Virtual Explorations, interactive maps, and a link to a new, robust companion Web site. Tischler threads two basic ideas through the text- that sociology is a rigorous, scientific discipline and that a basic knowledge of sociology is essential for understanding social interaction in many work and social settings. Each chapter progresses from a specific to a general analysis of society - each part introducing increasingly comprehensive factors necessary for a broad-based understanding of social organization.
