Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I am excited about this approach and believe it would work well for me and my students. It covers all foundational elements, and applies them to current social and professional situations, in a straight-forward writing style. The design layout is visually engaging as well."

"The chapters and modules provide discussion that is appropriate to student level and provides students with tools to complete assignments that are relevant to their life issues. Topics such as religious freedom and discrimination are important issues in the home, community, nationally, and globally. These chapters present topics in clear, understandable language and will engage student interest and promote classroom discussion. I like everything about this from the layout to the content."

"I was pleasantly surprised by the powerful, attractive "look and feel" of this text. The graphics, layout and content all converge on the learning objectives for the chapter in a memorable way. The clear presentation of the learning objectives invites active learning. Many textbooks promise to be more engaging but turn out to be reincarnations of the same old thing. From what I can see, the students would love this text."
