Description

Hewitt/White/Teevan, Introduction to Sociology

Clear, concise, and comprehensive, Hewitt, White and Teevan’s Introduction to Sociology brings together a variety of specialists, in touch with the most recent research in their areas, to apply their various perspectives to key sociological topics.  The editors successfully integrate the work of expert contributors into a smooth and accessible resource for students beginning their undergraduate studies in sociology.

The tenth edition is organized into five parts:

• Part 1 is an introduction to the field of sociology, its history in Canada, and the research methods or strategies sociologists use for their analyses.

• Part 2 focuses on society and the individual–the core of sociological thought–and includes discussion about culture, socialization, and deviant behaviour.

• Part 3 considers social differentiation and inequality in Canada, and examines social inequality, gender relations, and aging.

• Part 4 looks at social institutions and contains chapters on the major structures of society: families, religion, the media, and education.

• Part 5 examines social organization, with discussions of formal organizations and work, social movements, demography and urbanization, and social change.
