9780199452781: Contemporary Sociology: An Introduction to Concepts and Theories

This revised and updated edition of the highly successful sociology textbook, Contemporary Sociology, continues to throw light on key issues and concerns of present-day society. M. Francis Abraham's vast experience and extensive research cuts across conventional themes and geographical boundaries to include:

-Theoretical perspectives and research methods
-Key concepts and theories
-Relevant issues in education, economy, politics, population, stratification, minorities, urbanization, and environment
-Social institutions, organizations, and recent trends of change
-Examples drawn from numerous cultural contexts

This second edition introduces the following new concepts in a comparative perspective:
-Theoretical perspectives in a global age
-Crystallization of social interaction
-Race, gender, and stratification
-New social movements
-Gender and deviance
-Women's movements and caste-oriented movement

The crucial topics of modern-day sociology such as gender, race, lifestyle changes, ecological issues, and domestic violence are explained separately, distinguishing the book from general sociology textbooks.
