This comprehensive, thought-provoking text is the only one on the market that truly emphasizes global and cross-cultural issues as its core strength throughout each chapter. What better way to introduce your students to sociological concepts and applications than by invoking and instilling global issues. This text is the leader in the global perspective segment of the introduction to sociology market. Eleven of the sixteen chapters incorporate an example highlighting important and long-standing interconnections between the United States and some other country or countries. Five chapters highlight interconnections across national borders but in a more general way. Such extended examples mean that the core sociological concepts and theories are not presented in an encyclopedia-like way. Rather, the example becomes the vehicle for weaving together and applying key concepts and theories to issues confronting the United States and the world.

Michelle BemillerKansas State University"McDonalds is featured, and demonstrated as a global corporation. I thought this was ingenious because it really taps into an organization that students are familiar with, and applies organization concepts to McDonalds. I think this chapter will really hold students attention. If the author wanted to contrast organizational structure from one country to the next, Japan is always a good country to use when discussing organizations and bureaucracy because of the emphasis that Japanese work culture places on teamwork."
