Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Conley employs a "non-textbook" strategy of explaining complex concepts through personal examples and storytelling, and integrates coverage of social inequality throughout the text.

Synopsis:

The "untextbook" that teaches students to think like a sociologist, now available in a core edition.
