In the Classroom

Since its inception in 1965, SAGE Publications has been a leader in publishing high-caliber titles for academic researchers in the social sciences. Building on that solid foundation, we offer a broad selection of textbooks and resources to enrich the classroom experience for undergraduate and graduate students. We continue to set and meet high levels of publishing standards yet understand the importance of keeping textbooks accessible and affordable to students.

Our textbook program offers faculty members the resources you need to set the pace for a dynamic classroom environment.

Whether you're looking for a core textbook or supplemental course materials, SAGE makes it simple for you to find and adopt the resources to match your curriculum. Our website makes it convenient to browse online by course or series—or search our index of textbooks and forthcoming titles. If you'd like to receive information on titles available in the areas you teach, please contact us.

Several of our titles include ancillary materials, which will streamline your course management. Support products include instructors' manuals; printed and electronic resources, such as data sets and tabular material; and website study sites and test banks for students.
