Highlights of the new edition

Four new sections in each chapter examine sociology’s connection to the world around us:

    • Sociological Frontier analyzes current social changes and trends.  (For example: “Who Gets Tattoos and Why?”)
    • Current Events looks at recent world events through a sociological lens. (For example: “The War Trauma in Women Soldiers.”)
    • Today's Controversy investigates controversial issues in contemporary society. (For example: “Is the U.S. Losing Its World Leadership?”)
    • For a Better Life uses insights from sociology to show how we can improve our lives. (For example:  “Unleash the Power of Nice.”)
