Instructor Reviews

“I think it is excellent! It is creative, innovative, collaborative, cutting-edge, interesting, forward-thinking and well-written. I also like the idea of a collaborative book drawing on experts in their fields.”

—Bernadette Barton, Moorehead State University

“Fresh, insightful and engaging. By far the most interesting strategy that I have seen in a long time. It is so needed and timely.”

-David Townsend, Ivy Tech Community College

“I think it is brilliant. Using experts in each area of Sociology to write the chapters is a wonderful idea.”

- Jan Schall, Riverside Community College

"This book really is a collection of the best."

-Huiying Wei-Arthus, Weber State University

"I am very excited about the collaborative nature of authorship. I especially like the idea that the author of each chapter is one who teaches and researches in the subject of the chapter."

-Tiffany Parsons, University of West Georgia

Student Reviews

"I would say this is much better than the textbook I am currently using. Two main reasons why this book is better. The first is the organization of the book. I personally feel that this book flows better from subject to subject and using examples that relate to more of today's society. The second reason is the helpful tools the textbook provides. I like how the book highlights important ideas throughout the passage. In addition to the highlighted passages there were these big questions that helped direct what information you should be getting out of the reading.The most compelling feature was the big questions that are throughout the chapter. They make a real difference when trying to discern what to take away from the chapter."

-Jacob Diehl, Bowling Green State University

"When I first skimmed over the chapter I immediately found it more interesting than the current textbook. I liked the tone the author had throughout and the questions that were posed in the sections were thought provoking and questions that I've actually had myself."

-Symone Whitfield, East Carolina University

"I watched the 'Is Race Real?' video, and it really was informative. I like that the book has the interaction option built into the book. It gives the reader multiply ways of getting the information, and understanding it becomes easier. I also used the Infograph for the percentage of the population being white in Philadelphia and how it has changed over time. This tool really brings the information to life and helps the visual learners like myself better understand the topics in the book."

-Megan Spitler, Kennesaw State University

"I liked this chapter because it was not just a bunch of facts listed off. It made you think about how we ourselves think of race and ethnicity. I liked that it explained different examples without telling you what is right and wrong."

-Stephanie Spaniak, Northern Michigan University

"I absolutely loved the chapter, and enjoyed reading it. The chapter is much better then the chapter with my current text book. The information is very elaborate, and so much more interesting."

-Leah Wallace, Wor Wic Community College
