Editorial Reviews

Booknews
An introductory text for undergraduates, detailing social science and its methods. Material is reader-friendly yet not simplistic, with boxes on topics of interest and imaginative b&w photos and illustrations, plus key concepts and terms and review and discussion questions. Coverage includes origins of Western society, technology and society, the family, ethnic and racial stratification, and international political and economic relations. This tenth edition is significantly shorter, deleting in-depth information on the history of the field, economics, and crime. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
