Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Ruane and Cerulo present an approach they have developed to nurturing sociological thinking in students who are taking a first course in the discipline. Each chapter begins with a shared idea--a conventional wisdom that both instructors and students have encountered by virtue of being consumers of popular culture. Then the textbook introduces relevant sociological concepts and theories that mesh with or debunk the conventional wisdom. Among the topics are winning is everything, beauty is only skin deep, America is the land of equal opportunity, honesty is the best policy, marriage is a failing institution, immigrants are ruining the nation, and education is the great equalizer.
