Exploring the questions of today Sociology Now reflects the discipline today andexplores the big questions about multiculturalism and globalization that sociologists ask. Sociology has always offered a way to make sense of the complex and sometimes contradictory forces that shape our social lives in any era. As Sociology Now explains sociology as both abody of knowledge and a "way of seeing," it shows how the forces of globalization and multiculturalism have come to preoccupy sociologists and influence the way they look at the events and experiences of the early twenty first century. Michael Kimmel, a leading sociologist and gender researcher, and co-author Amy Aronson, a journalist and media scholar, address questions regarding these forces head-on as they make a compelling case for the importance of sociology in the contemporary world.
