Synopsis: Completely revised and up to date and offering a succinct new presentation, Kendall's SOCIOLOGY IN OUR TIMES: THE ESSENTIALS, 9e uses real-life stories, told by the people who have lived them, as well as familiar themes such as the American Dream, body image, the environment, and fake news media to introduce you to the study of sociology and engage your sociological imagination--a vital resource you may not know you have. Kendall shows you how sociology is at work in our society and can be applied to everyday life and to the pressing social issues we face. The text offers a wealth of learning tools, and every chapter includes a guide to how you can make a positive difference in both your immediate and extended communities. A vibrant new interior design and an exciting collection of new videos with assignable activities complement the text's new coverage of timely topics such as health care legislation, the U.S. and global economies, Barack Obama's presidency, and the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
