In this lively new edition, the authors continue to explore the increasing diversity and globalization of societies everywhere, and the special role of mass media and information technology in contemporary society. Praise for the Fifth Edition of Society in Focus: "Besides the overall quality of the text narrative, one of my reasons for adopting Society in Focus, Fifth Edition, was the thematic focus on the abundance of false information presented by the mass media...The maps deserve special mention, as they are particularly good...Overall, I find Society in Focus, Fourth Edition to be an outstanding introductory sociology textbook." -Dwight Wood, Marshall University, West Virginia
