Overview

Sociology students sometimes ask, "What does sociology have to do with me?" The answer is "Everything," and this novel - a love story - is a unique way of bringing sociological concepts and perspectives into awareness. The Dancer's Gift: Sociology in Life introduces readers to 180 sociological concepts that are cleverly interwoven throughout this story about two lovers: Samantha, a sociology major, and Marcel, a dancer. Storytelling is the creative conversion of life itself to a clearer, more powerful, and more meaningful experience. The stories and characters of this hybrid novel/textbook have been chosen to represent a spectrum of different cultures, socio-economic strata, religions, and ethnicity. The stories cover a range of issues, including marriage and divorce, adultery, education, religion, gender issues, and racism - basically a kaleidoscope of sociology topics are presented as events in the context of a love story.
