SOCIOLOGY: A GLOBAL PERSPECTIVE, Eighth Edition, is a brief introduction to sociology paperback text that uses sociological concepts and theories to analyze the most compelling and significant issues of our day, which happen to be global. Issues covered include the proposed and existing border fences that separate Mexico from the United States, the disparities between the worlda€™s richest and poorest countries, the century-long Palestinian-Israeli conflict, McDonaldization, and the planeta€™s dependence on fossil fuels. This approach demonstrates sociologya€™s analytical power for thinking about personal, local, national, but especially global issues and events.
