Two basic ideas are threaded through this 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 complex factors necessary for a broad-based understanding of social organization. The three integrated resources in the book - chapter discussion, study guide and practice tests - provide an applications-oriented approach to help students see how society shapes people and how people shape society.
