Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This comprehensive, student-friendly introductory textbook emphasizes the reality of social change and its impact on individuals, groups, and societies throughout the world. The text carefully balances contemporary and classic theory and research, with special attention to the works of female and minority social scientists and cross-cultural studies. Kornblum applies all the major perspectives of sociology without giving undue emphasis to any single approach. SOCIOLOGY IN A CHANGING WORLD is part of the Thomson ADVANTAGE PROGRAM, an exciting series created specifically to deliver quality content from highly respected authors in a convenient format that will be sold to your students at a significantly lower price.
