Society: The Basics (11th Edition) is an insightful textbook for college students, designed to help them see their own daily lives in a sociological perspective. Author John J. Macionis successfully constructed a rich framework of global and theoretical outlook and composed a relevant, down-to-basics introduction to the often daunting subject of sociology. Through Society: The Basics (11th Edition) (ISBN 9780205003785), Macionis uses his instructional expertise and interest in sociology to provide an appealing and transparent system to understanding society in an intellectual and critical manner. It uses updated issues to help students better comprehend the current social situations and how they affect the world. The book is divided into two sections, both brief and comprehensive. The first explains the basic aspects of sociology in a quick and concise way, giving students a good foundation and a mastery of the terms, subjects, and concepts which they will need as they progress though the chapters. The second section is a deeper look into subjects like socialization, culture, social interaction, and groups. Macionis also integrated chapters on global, gender, and social stratification to encourage readers to develop a more analytical understanding and perspective on discrimination and values. Materials on politics, economics, and race and ethnicity are also included. Every chapter in this book ends with a visual summary of the subjects covered, so both students and instructors can summarize the most important points and see assess if they are meeting their learning goals. Overall, Society: The Basics (11th Edition) by John J. Macionis is a well-written niche book for students of sociology. It is perfectly illustrated and profoundly covers all the key methods, theories, concepts, and principles of studying society, culture, and mankind.
