Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dalton Conley's groundbreaking "non-textbook" teaches students how to think like sociologists. Students learn how to use their sociological imaginations to debunk conventional wisdom. With a strong emphasis on concepts, You May Ask Yourself challenges students to use sociological methods to evaluate facts about their social worlds by "making the familiar strange."

Synopsis:

Make the familiar strange with Dalton Conley's "untextbook."
