Like its predecessors, the tenth edition of this text reflects Rick Schaefer's mission to bring readers a comprehensive, up-to-date presentation that teaches them how to think critically about society and their own lives from a wide range of classical and contemporary perspectives. Combining balanced coverage of theory with current research findings, distinctive social policy sections, examples of interest to students, and abundant learning aids and exercises, this text will help students develop a sociological imagination.
Exercise your sociological imagination and step into the world of Reel Society, an interactive movie that brings key sociological concepts to life. You become part of the story of several college students during three challenging days on campus. You take part by making decisions for them. You see the consequences of your choices. Through it all, a wide variety of issues and perspectives are shown for the purpose of relating sociological thought to real life.
