"...[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."
