"The SQ3R technique is one of the major reasons for my adopting this textbook. The sectional questions, rather than just topic and subtopic coverage, provide the students with the opportunity to contrast their answers with those provided by the text. The additional tables and/or graphics permits the students to engage in their own personal "debunking" process"
"Sociology In The News and Doing Research sections are impressive features of this book. They tend to focus studentsâ€™ attention on contemporary social issues, make sociological concepts more applicable, and enhance critical thinking."
"I adopted this text because of its critical thinking/questioning approach to social issues, its balanced presentation of major theoretical perspectives, its emphasis on both basic and applied sociology, and its global perspective."
