Regarded as the most authoritative introduction to contemporary sociology, Essentials of Sociology adds a new author to its team with the Second Edition.
Deborah Carr draws on her extensive experience teaching introductory sociology at Rutgers University to revise the book and add new material that underscores the relevance of sociology to students' lives. New chapter openers include a discussion of Hurricane Katrina in the urbanization chapter, a description of group behaviors of West Point cadets in the chapter on organizations, and, in the stratification chapter, a discussion of the pecking order among high school students.
