Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Pluses: This book is probably basic information that everyone should know. It's presented pretty clearly.
There is even some criticism of sociologists in there - that they can be prone to groupthink. Negatives: What I find frustrating about this book, as opposed to the textbook for Psychology 101, Econ 101, and other social "science" intro courses - is that this one doesn't show enough about sociologists and what they are doing with their knowledge practically. I don't think that examples exist! Show me sociologists who are working on policy - education policy, affirmative action, drafting health inequality. What is the difference between a social worker and psychologist? Isn't that the kind of thing you should know when you take an introductory class in a field? I still cannot answer that question, except I would expect a social worker deals more with local, state, and perhaps federal bureaucracy.
Where are the sociologists of this world,...
I honesty didn't know what loose leaf means. So I posted a picture for everyone so they know what their buying.
This was the required text for a Sociology 1101 class. The content was both informative and engaging. The chapters are laid out in a foundational order; each page contains sidebars with highlighted terms and core concepts. The index is thorough, making it easy to find in the book whatever it is you might need.
You'll only get from a textbook what you're willing to put in, with regard to critical thinking and study skills, of course, and this book proved truly invaluable. I kept my copy after term, rather than selling it, and I still reference it regularly when writing papers or researching world topics.
