Known for its concise 15-page chapters, THINK Sociology remains one of the leading introductory references for incoming sociology majors, and even non-majors in related fields. This modular reference was written with the student in mind and has been edited using feedback gathered directly fro learners. John Carl utilizes only the latest researches to illustrate the core principles of sociology, along with fresh examples that make the material very relevant today. THINK Sociology (ISBN 9780205777181) also comes with a variety of instructor and student aids, including Thinkspot, an open access website that supports the text. The website is a comprehensive resource of learning tools and review aids to facilitate self-study. John Carl divided this material into 17 chapters, each offering discussions on a long list of basic sociology topics. It covers the foundations of sociology, sociological research, culture, and then social structure and interaction in both micro and macro levels. There are chapters devoted to socialization and fitting in, groups and the social environment, social class and stratification, and even global stratification. The author also discusses population and its impact on the environment, as well as race and ethnicity. The succeeding chapters are all about gender stratification, health and aging, the legal system, marriage and family, and religion and education. The last two chapters talk about economy and politics, and social change. John Carl excels in both teaching and writing, and has made lasting contributions in the instruction of sociology, especially with bestselling books such as Think Social Problems and several editions of Think Sociology.
