SOCIOLOGY IN OUR TIMES: THE ESSENTIALS, 10th Edition presents the latest available data and new insights on behaviors, beliefs, issues, and trends in our nation and world from a sociological perspective. The author humanizes sociology with real-life stories, told by the people who have lived them, and timely topics such as health care legislation, the U.S. and global economies, environmental activism, immigration, bullying and social media, high-tech employer "spying" on workers, gun control, same sex-marriage, and establishing policies on how to prevent military suicides. The content illuminates the text's main themes of diversity, the application of sociology to everyday life, global comparisons, media, and social change-particularly as it relates to social media and other forms of technology that are bringing about new ways of living and interacting with others.
