9780195431667: Elements of Sociology: A Critical Canadian Introduction

The bestselling Elements of Sociology is back in a highly anticipated second edition. Taking a refreshing look at the discipline through extensive use of first-person narratives, the text inspires students to see sociology in everyday life. Beginning with the origins of the discipline, the authors examine how sociology helps make sense of traditional topics--such as family, deviance, culture--and contemporary issues--such as immigration, health care, and gender and sexuality. Promoting an understanding of core sociological concepts, the new edition challenges students to think differently about sociology.

Review:

"Elements of Sociology is that rarer of birds-a textbook that satisfies the pedagogical goals of the instructor (especially insofar as stimulating the student's sociological imagination is concerned), while also equipping the student with the tools necessary to participate in that endeavour in an accessible, meaningful, and therefore effective, way." --Janice Drodge, Cape Breton University
