Review:

"...[Andersen and Taylor's SOCIOLOGY: UNDERSTANDING A DIVERSE SOCIETY] is good in providing students with a context for diversity. It is up-to-date and comprehensive. It provides the student the opportunity to explore more in depth with the we resources and suggested reading. All in all, I think it is a well-researched user-friendly textbook..." "...the writing style and use of language...engages the reader. It is erudite enough to convey the information yet accessible to the reader."

"...the writing style is excellent for undergraduates."

Andersen and Taylor's SOCIOLOGY: UNDERSTANDING A DIVERSE SOCIETY is "a solid, comprehensive text with an exciting combination of graphics, perspectives, and opportunities for students to consider policy issues."
