In an era of human genome research, environmental challenges, new reproductive technologies, and more, students can benefit from an introductory sociology text that is a biologically informed. This innovative text integrates mainstream sociological research in all areas of sociology with a scientifically-informed model of an evolved, biological human actor. This text allows students to better understand their emotional, social, and institutional worlds. It also illustrates how biological understanding naturally enhances the sociological approach. This grounding of sociology in a biosocial conception of the individual actor is coupled with a comparative approach, as human biology is universal and often reveals itself as variations on themes across human cultures. Tables, Figures, Photos, and the author's concise and remarkably lively style make this a truly enjoyable book to read and teach.

About the Author:

Rosemary L. Hopcroft is Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. She has published widely in the areas of comparative and historical sociology and evolution, biology, and society in journals that include the American Sociological Review, American Journal of Sociology, and Social Forces. She is the author of Sociology: A Bio-Social Introduction (Paradigm 2010).

Review:

“A unique and very valuable textbook that is long overdue in the field. It is the first introductory book that I know of that starts from a biosocial perspective. Hopcroft’s book should make it easy for teachers who have a typical sociology background to incorporate an evolutionary perspective in their teaching.”
―François Nielson, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill

“This textbook shows how sociology encompasses all fundamental and major aspects of human life and behavior. No other text does this. Hopcroft’s text adds tremendous depth to the sociological perspective. Moreover the author writes in such a way that undergraduates – even those who normally find reading to be a chore – will quickly grasp the central ideas of the book and will develop the appropriate level of understanding the complex connections between sociology and the life sciences.”
―Jeff Davis, California State University-Long Beach

“By using an interdisciplinary approach, Hopcroft brings sociology into the 21st century. Introductory sociology students in a community college setting will especially benefit from this text as it easily and neatly compliments other core areas of study in the natural sciences.”
―John Glass, Collin College
