Key features
NEW TO THIS EDITION:

Fully updated to address recent developments that have had an impact on sociological thought and everyday social life, such as:

  • the global coronavirus pandemic, which has caused millions of deaths worldwide and touched the lives nearly every person on the planet.
  • disruptions in the economy indicated by employment rates, hiring and wage trends, home foreclosures, and personal spending patterns.
  • new incidents of racially or ethnically connected violence
  • debates over immigration and the southern U.S. border
  • new scientific evidence about the rate of global climate change

All graphic exhibits have been updated and some changed from statistical tables to more readable charts and graphs, making trends and relationships more obvious. 

New statistical information is drawn from the most recent data from sources such as the United Nations, the U.S. Census Bureau, the Population Reference Bureau, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the National Center for Education Statistics, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the U.S. Bureau of Justice Statistics, and the Pew Research Center.

KEY FEATURES:

  • Personal vignettes engage students and show them how sociology affects everyday life.

  • Research features expose students to the importance and application of social science research.

  • “Micro-Macro Connection” boxes demonstrate how individual experiences connect to broader cultural, institutional, and structural phenomena.

  • Chapter-ending learning aids, including summaries, “Your Turn” exercises, highlights, and key terms, help readers master important concepts.

  • For students considering medical careers and preparing for the MCAT exam, the book contains many substantive examples from medicine and health care, including: jargon used by medical professionals, the medicalization of deviance, impression management by hospital physicians, “back stage” conversation among doctors and nurses, the medical and social penalties for obesity, gender inequality in health care, U.S. health care reform, and global public health issues.
