The editors and authors of this book, seventh in the Service-Learning in the Disciplines Series, bring their own sociological wisdom and imagination to demonstrate how service-learning can effectively be used in the sociology curricula and in class exercises. Discussions in the introduction and chapters, along with appended syllabi, provide ways in which such programs can be adopted in undergraduate sociology courses.
