    The Basics of Sociology: Developing and Applying the Sociological Imagination is a collection of articles, case studies, and data exercises designed to teach students about the sociological perspective, how it has been applied in various publics, and how they can apply and utilize the sociological perspective in everyday life. The anthology contains vital written pieces on public sociology, social theories, the science of sociology, social institutions, and social inequality.

    The anthology is divided into three units. The first unit addresses the foundations of the discipline of sociology, exploring social theories, the science of sociology, and deviance and social control. The second unit includes readings on age, class, race, and the institution of work, as well as gender, sexuality, and the family. In the final unit, students learn about demography and social change, and applied, clinical, and public sociology.

    The Basics of Sociology is cross disciplinary in nature and suitable for foundational courses in sociology.

    Christina Ryder is an instructor of sociology at Missouri State University, Drury University, and Northeast College. She is also the Missouri State GO LEAD coordinator, and former interim director for the Missouri State Center for Community Engagement. Her specific areas of academic expertise include demographic and social analysis and social inequality.
