From the Back Cover:

Empirical Approaches to Sociology addresses significant sociological issues and demonstrates the interplay between sociological insight and empirical observations through a collection of readings. Using primary sources, the book gives readers a chance to see how research findings are interpreted and incorporated into sociological theory. The readings are rich in data, but not so technical that they require advanced math skills. These forty essays provide a broad overview of the field and represent a range of theoretical perspectives.

For the fourth edition, the book has been reorganized to align with introductory and social problems texts. Nineteen new readings covers topics that include cross-national studies of internal war and violence, AIDS, the impact of inequality on societies, corporate scandals, international terrorism, U.S. Immigration, and social interaction on the Internet.

Empirical Approaches to Sociology follows the same order of topics as Carter's Doing Sociology With Student CHIP: Data Happy!, Fourth Edition (0-205-39483-3), making it an ideal companion text.
