This balanced, mainstream, beautifully written, and up-to-date text is unrivaled in its ability to get students to see the connection between themselves and the social world. It teaches students how to think sociologically, not just what to think, and emphasizes the importance of diversity and a global perspective. It has been heralded for its inclusion of pop culture examples that instantly connect with todayas students, and for its presentation of sociological concepts in a fresh, contemporary light. The book features movie reviews in the popular Sociology at the Movies boxes that explore the sociological messages within recent movies such as CRASH, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, SYRIANA, and many others. The authors also draw on the real world with examples from Chris Rockas stand-up routine, the hip-hop music scene, and the rituals of the Super Bowl, as well as scholarly discussions of topics ranging from race and poverty to religious practices.
