Chapters immediately draw students in with first-person accounts of individuals' lived experience and include significantly updated coverage, a wealth of learning tools, and opportunities for students to apply what they learn and make a difference in their own communities. Compelling examples, a vivid writing style, and chapter themes grounded in social issues already familiar to students engage their sociological imaginations as they learn the concepts, theories, and research that comprise sociology today.
