Revised to become more accessible, Sociology: A Down-to-Earth Approach shows James Henslin's passion in relaying sociological principles not only to student readers, but to anyone who wants to develop a better understanding and appreciation of society and its interactions. Readers will see important sociological concepts applied in everyday life through the examples and illustrations; sooner enough, they begin to relate these principles to their own lives. The book also features comparisons that allow readers to analyze the diversity of global societies and cultures, as well as recognize important distinctions in society (then and now). The examples provide a global perspective, explaining how the new capitalism works and emphasizing the effects and influences of the global economy on societies, from the work people do down to the price or value of products and services. Sociology: A Down-to-Earth Approach (10th Edition) - ISBN 9780205688623 also steps it up when it comes to illustrations and visual presentations. It has been upgraded with stunning photos, graphs, and maps that don't' only heighten interest, but also facilitates better comprehension and understanding. Henslin added new key topics, starting from different sociological perspectives, culture and socialization, social structure, interaction, as well as social networks. There are also sections on bureaucracy, formal organizations, social control, deviance as well as global stratification. The book even goes deep into the topic of social class in the US, as well as other controversies like sex, gender, age, race, and ethnicity. It is an excellent resource for researchers interested in the economy and politics, education, religion, marriage, family, and health. The final chapters talk about population and urbanization, social movements and collective behaviors, and lastly, social change and the impact of technology.
