The new edition of Sociology helps students take Sociology with them on campus, in their careers, and in their communities. While still maintaining its well-balanced coverage of the 3 perspectives, this new revision has a strong focus on encouraging students to think about their world with a sociological imagination. Through its strong coverage of globalization, race and ethnicity, careers in sociology, and current topics like mass media and social policy, Sociology provides students with knowledge they can use at school, at work, in their neighborhoods, and in the global community.
