About this title

Synopsis:

This specially priced comprehensive, introductory text emphasizes the increasing diversity and globalization of societies everywhere, and the special role of mass media and information technology in contemporary society. It offers balanced coverage of sociology's three major theoretical perspectives, and shows how other paradigms (including feminism) can deepen our understanding of complex issues.

----EXAM COPY EDITION---

A balanced and comprehensive introduction to sociology, Society in Focus includes timely and highly engaging research in every chapter on the powerful influences of mass media and “technomedia,” information technologies such as computers, email, the Internet, PDAs, and wireless phones.

In this lively new edition, the authors continue to explore the increasing diversity and globalization of societies everywhere, and the special role of mass media and information technology in contemporary society.

Praise for the Fifth Edition of Society in Focus:

“Besides the overall quality of the text narrative, one of my reasons for adopting Society in Focus, Fifth Edition, was the thematic focus on the abundance of false information presented by the mass media...The maps deserve special mention, as they are particularly good...Overall, I find Society in Focus, Fourth Edition to be an outstanding introductory sociology textbook.”
Dwight Wood, Marshall University, West Virginia
