About this title:
This revised edition of Tischler's INTRODUCTION TO SOCIOLOGY continues a tradition of providing proven textbooks to students and professors at lower prices. This value is enhanced with the inclusion of the built-in study guide and practice tests. The author threads two basic ideas through the text--that sociology is a rigorous, scientific discipline and that a basic knowledge of sociology is essential for understanding social interaction in many work and social settings. Each chapter progresses from a specific to a general analysis of society--each part introducing increasingly more comprehensive factors necessary for a broad-based understanding of social organization.
