Sociology: Your Compass for a New World (with InfoTrac) / Edition 1by Robert J. Brym, John Lie
Pub. Date: 01/07/2005
This brief, balanced, totally up-to-date text is characterized by its focus on the connection between oneself and the social world. It teaches students "how" to think, rather than just "what" to think, draws the connection between objectivity and subjectivity in sociological research, and places an emphasis on the importance of diversity and the global perspective. It is heralded for its inclusion of pop culture examples that truly connect with the students of today, and for its presentation of sociological concepts in a fresh, new contemporary way.
