This best-selling comprehensive book conveys the relevance of sociology by including a timely collection of theories, research, and examples--including its signature first-person accounts that open chapters. Experiences represented in these opening vignettes accurately mirror the richness and complexity of society, while also establishing the themes that are carried throughout the chapters. Author Diana Kendall’s vivid, inviting writing style, emphasis on applications, eye for the most compelling current examples, and use of assignable photo essays and companion videos engage readers and further highlight sociology’s relevance to all students. Now in its Ninth Edition, SOCIOLOGY IN OUR TIMES is acclaimed in the field for being the first textbook to integrate race, class, and gender issues, and for its thorough presentation of sociological theory, including contemporary perspectives such as feminism and postmodernism.
