Synopses & Reviews
Usable for an intro, theory or reference source, this book is organized into 68 chapters with 41 tables that follow the content sequence of most intro sociology textbooks. Each chapter averages about three pages and has 10 laws. None of the 700 laws are laws in the legal sense; instead, all the laws can be viewed as factors, patterns or principles that clarify a given social science topic. A few of the topics addressed include laws relating to crime, poverty, prejudice, marriage, good parenting, life expectancy, global warming, early Christianity, the future of the U.S., and over 50 other topics. Chapter topics are on the opposite side of this page.
