The primary goal of Sociology An Introduction, Sixth Edition, is to show to how social structures affects people-how the society in which one lives, the position one occupies in that society, and the roles one plays influence individual experience and social behavior. The shorter 17-chapter format enabled the authors to provide an in-depth analysis of sociological theories, concepts, and research of longer books. At the same time, their use of clearly-written concrete examples makes this book accessible to students at all levels. This sixth edition has been revised to include a global perspective of sociology, with emphasis on mass media, gender, and aging. For example, each chapter includes a "Global View" box, which looks at the social pattern under discussion in another culture(s). Key chapters include sections that compare U.S. institutions with those in other societies. The authors also focus on subjects long considered most challenging for introductory sociology students: social structure, politics, and economics.
