Rodney Stark is a renowned scholar and researcher, and is recognized as one of the foremost sociologists working in the field of sociology of religion. Professor Stark has published more than 140 articles and 27 scholarly books that have won numerous awards and acknowledgements, including a Pulitzer Prize nomination. He is also known as a pioneer in the technology field. He co-founded the MicroCase Corporation, which is now a part of Thomson Wadsworth. With his background in journalism, it isn't surprising that in addition to receiving praise for his unique approach to sociology, he's received praise for having one of the better-written texts on the market.Review:
"The 'doing' of sociology adds an excitement to the material and emphasizes the scientific elements of the discipline. Exploring real relationships requires a strong focus on critical thinking about issues, rather than accepting at face value the 'expert' presentation in standard textbooks."
"I like the opportunity to have them (the students) work with real data."
"I want undergraduate sociology students to learn about sociology as science. That means introducing them to patterned (not single instances) behavior, explanations for patterns, and research that tests explanations for the patterns."
