Overview

This mainstream, best-selling text is noted for its especially strong coverage of current social issues, along with its integration of race, class, gender, and age perspectives. The author includes diverse theoretical viewpoints, including feminist theory. A social issue or application opens each chapter and provides various topics for boxes, features, and examples that are carried throughout the entire chapter. The author, who has the most vivid, personal writing style in the market, uses compelling everyday examples that make sociology particularly relevant to diverse students. This cutting-edge book highlights the relevance of sociology by including a diverse collection of classical and contemporary theories, interesting and relevant research, and lived experiences that accurately mirror the diversity in society itself. Kendall shows students that sociology involves important questions and issues that they confront both personally and vicariously.
