Society in Focus: An Introduction to Sociology

Sixth Edition

 

William E. Thompson                 Joseph V. Hickey

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. Society in Focus is designed to help students think clearly and critically about sociological issues, concepts and methods. The 6th edition has been thoroughly updated, including the following highlights:

  • New section on “Infotainment: Information/Entertainment” (Chapter 2)
  • New section on “Young Adults: Betwixt and Between”–the phenomenon of adult children either continuing to live with their parents, or moving out, going to college, etc., and then moving back in with their parents (Chapter 4)
  • New coverage of the latest research on the possible link between media violence and aggressive behavior (Chapter 7)
  • Thoroughly updated statistics on globalization and world poverty (Chapter 9)
  • Major revision of the section “Contemporary Trends in American Education;” a new section on standardized testing and its impact on American education; and new “Sociological Focus” Box 14.2 that examines No Child Left Behind (Chapter 14)
  • New “Sociological Focus” Box 18.3 “Alternative Medicine: From ‘Quackery’ to ‘Integrative Health Care’?” (Chapter 18)
