Overview

Joan Ferrante's new Sixth Edition is a powerful tool for putting this country-and the world-into clear perspective and helping you master the sociological concepts that confront all cultures.

In a changing world, it is now more vital than ever to understand how the beliefs, traditions, and experiences of individuals in other countries affect us all. Ferrante's trademark approach continues in this edition: in each chapter, she emphasizes a country or an interconnection between the United States and another country and masterfully weaves together and applies sociological concepts and theories to important issues in United States and the world, to help you see your own country and others in the way sociologists do. So fascinating on every page, this book will help you discover how the sociological perspective enriches your understanding of our place in the global community.
