Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the new fourth edition of Social Things, Charles Lemert continues to build on the remarkable narrative that first appeared in 1997. The author brings new material into almost every chapter-a stunning account of Hurricane Katrina to illustrate sociological incompetence, new material on maquiladora workers and low-wage immigrant farm workers, an expanded presentation of Pierre Bourdieu's thinking, discussions of America's exploitation of the natural resources of less-developed nations, as well as updated information and facts throughout the book. Book jacket.
