About this title

Synopsis:

The revised and expanded Sixth Edition of Through the Eyes of Social Science maintains the quality and breadth of thought provoking articles that have distinguished previous editions. All areas of social science anthropology, sociology, psychology, economics, political science, history, and geography are covered in accessible, readable selections. Half of the chapters are new to this edition and reflect current issues such as gender discrimination in schools, racial profiling, and the effects of poverty on families. The theme of multiculturalism that ran through past successful editions is made more explicit, with new articles on diversity, gender, and race, many from a feminist perspective. Outstanding features include: 1) discussion questions at the end of each chapter; 2) expansive glossary; 3) detailed maps; 4) nearly 100 boxed items providing alternative viewpoints, such as: Megatrends 2000, Why Study Suicide Rates?, Culture Shock, Globalization, How to Distinguish Good from Bad History, The Cultural Landscape, Karl Marx s New Society, African Genesis, Who Goes to Prison?, Dating Fossils, Voodoo-Reality or Fantasy?, The Story of Who Hunts: Two Tales, Backlash and the White Ethnic Movement, Who Was Freud?, and The Digital and Income Divides; 5) references to Internet sources; and 6) up to date material from Census 2000. Not-for-sale instructor resource material available to college and university faculty only; contact publisher directly.
