Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Real World succeeds in classrooms because it focuses on the perspective that students care about most—their own. In every chapter, the authors use activities, examples from everyday life, and popular culture to draw students into thinking sociologically and to show the relevance of sociology to our relationships, our jobs, and our future goals.

Synopsis:

The most relevant textbook for today’s students.
