Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

#LINK<>##LINK<>##LINK<>##LINK<This theoretically balanced text offers global perspectives and shows how sociology is applied to real problems. It also contains a built-in study guide.># Throughout the text, the author uses illuminating examples to show how society works and how human behavior is shaped by cultural, structural, and institutional forces.

 

As in previous editions, the Seventh Edition integrates two themes that reflect contemporary trends in sociology. The first is an examination of how sociological knowledge can be applied to social problems to help and improve our world. The second is the recognition that societies and cultures are becoming increasingly diverse and interdependent.

Book News Annotation:

In this introduction to sociology, Sullivan (Northern Michigan University) employs functionalist, conflict, and interactionist theoretical perspectives to explain how society works and how human behavior is shaped by cultural, structural, and institutional forces. This sixth edition offers expanded material on gay marriages, the social roots of terrorism, and the role of religion in political change around the world, and includes reorganized review sections.
