To that end, this well-respected text combines a balanced three-perspective approach with excellent student-oriented examples and distinctive social policy sections. - Exciting new chapter openers drawn from sociological writings convey the excitement and relevance of sociological inquiry. - "Think About It" caption features encourage students to think critically about information presented in maps, graphs and tables. - "Imagine" sections within each chapter ask students to use a sociological imagination to figure out how major concepts and issues apply to their own lives.Read Less
