I like Newman's book better.
Still trying to determine if book would work as a supplemental text for Social Problems class, to be taught Fall 2015. It wouldn't work as well for the Introduction to Sociology course.
It provides a wide array of information concerning diversity in society.
It's fascinating but too sophisticated for my students.
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
