Introduction to Sociology (Seagull 8th Edition)
Giddens (London School of Economics, UK) et al. present a sociology textbook that combines classic theories of the field with empirically-grounded studies and examples from real life to show the basic issues of interest to today's sociologists. The text emphasizes eight themes: the link between micro and macro-level contexts; social change in the world; the globalization of social life; the importance of comparative study; a historical approach; issues of social class, gender, and race; sociological research methods; and the relationship between the social and the personal. Basic concepts are explained within chapters rather than at the beginning of the text. This edition has revised discussion of the sociological imagination and perspective; revised chapters on methods, gender, and aging; and an expanded section on Alzheimer's. Statistics have been updated throughout. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc. , Portland, OR (booknews. com)
