From the Publisher:

This text introduces sociology using the overall theme "The Great Social Transformation" to systematically highlight two aspects of social change. The first involves the change from social life organized around personal, communal relations (as in more traditional societies) to social life organized around impersonal, associational relations (as in industrial and postindustrial societies). The second aspect concerns ongoing social change and its implications for life in the twenty-first century.

From the Back Cover:

This book introduces readers to sociology using an eclectic approach which is tied together by systematically highlighting two aspects of social change -- 1) the change or contrast between social life organized around personal, communal relations and social life organized around impersonal, associational relations; and 2) the ongoing social processes and the implications they have for life in the twenty-first century. Offers a unique perspective that shows how society and the individual work together to shape both the present and the future. Analyzes the individual and society from different theoretical views -- functionalism, conflict theory, and symbolic interaction in both discussion and application. Covers: What Is Sociology?; Culture, Society, and Social Change; Socialization and Deviance; Interaction, Groups, and Organizations; Population, Ecology, and Urbanization; SOCIAL INEQUALITY: Inequalities of Social Class; Inequalities of Race and Ethnicity; Inequalities of Gender; SOCIAL INSTITUTIONS: The Economy; The Political Order; Marriage and the Family; Education; Religion; Medicine and Health Care; WORKING FOR CHANGE: Collective Social Action. For anyone interested in an introduction to sociology.
