Description

Sociology: Your Compass for a New World, Fourth Edition, is the new gold-standard for introductory sociology courses. The renowned author team shows students how thinking sociologically can help them draw connections between themselves and the social world. Key sociological concepts are clearly connected to students’ personal experiences by using examples from popular culture that resonate deeply with student interests and experiences. This text devotes more space to drawing connections between objectivity and subjectivity in research, making the discipline more appealing to students. Tables and graphs are not simply referred to, they are analyzed. Where evidence warrants, some theories are rejected and others endorsed. With a new, visually-compelling design and an engaging, relevant narrative, Sociology: Your Compass for a New World will inspire the development of your students’ sociological imaginations.
