9780393937459: Essentials of Sociology (Fifth Edition)

The textbook that helps students see the big picture of sociology.

Essentials of Sociology moves students beyond their individual experiences by highlighting the macro social forces at work in our everyday lives. New “Digital Life” features in the Fifth Edition encourage students to think critically about how the Internet and smartphones are transforming the way we date, manage our health, and even practice religion. Innovative pedagogy, including end-of-chapter concept maps and a goal-focused organization, help students master the core concepts and see the big picture.

About the Author:

Anthony Giddens, former director of the London School of Economics and a current member of the House of Lords, is a world-renowned social theorist who has written over forty books. He has written on just about every major topic in sociology but is best known for his work on modernization theory and globalization.

Mitchell Duneier is an award-winning urban ethnographer at Princeton University and the City University of New York Graduate Center. He is most famous for his book Sidewalk, which won the Los Angeles Times Book Prize. Duneier's research focuses on the urban poor and other groups in the margins of society.

Richard P. Appelbaum, the MacArthur chair of Global Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara, has won several awards for his teaching and works mainly on globalization and labor issues. Appelbaum is the coauthor of Behind the Label.

Deborah Carr is a demographer and an active teacher at Rutgers University, where she regularly teaches the intro course. Her work focuses on sociology of the life course, aging, social psychology, and gender. Carr's latest book, Worried Sick: How Stress Hurts Us and How to Bounce Back, looks at how stress gets under our skin, makes us sick, and how and why people cope with stress differently.
