Same old crap...trying to force the "enlightened ideas" of the sociology pioneers down the throats of unsuspecting students. I only purchased it because it was required, and will likely burn it afterward. I don't need to see a picture of a teenager shooting-up heroin; I don't need to hear how wonderful Karl Marx was; and, I don't need to read a study wherein a black teen (aka African-American)has divorced parents, but everyone is OK with that, and the social worker/researcher can't figure out why the teen keeps going for "loser" guys.
