Summary
    Introduction to Sociology provides students with a carefully curated selection of readings that demonstrate how everyday human interactions construct our global social world. The collection offers students an array of unique perspectives on foundational sociological concepts and an engaging look into real-world issues and the global impacts of social life.

    The text is divided into 13 chapters. The opening chapter provides students with a general introduction to sociology and describes three basic types of sociological traditions. Additional chapters introduce readers to sociological research methods, concepts related to culture, the idea of socialization, and perceptions of deviance and crime. They explore readings on social stratification, race as a social construct, contemporary constructions of gender and sexuality, and the role and function of marriage and family in modern times. Education, politics, globalization, population, and urbanization are discussed within the context of sociology. The book closes with a chapter dedicated to social change and social movements.

    Written to help students understand how sociological theories can support their understanding of our social world, Introduction to Sociology is an ideal resource for foundational courses in discipline.
