Summary

With its vibrant narrative, engaging pedagogy, currency and theoretical scholarship, this text uses a wealth of multicultural and global examples to provide students with substantive coverage of sociological concepts. It integrates global analyses throughout, so that students learn to think critically about sociology as a discipline.
