9780393912999: You May Ask Yourself: An Introduction to Thinking Like a Sociologist

The “untextbook” that teaches students to think like a sociologist.

You May Ask Yourself gives instructors an alternative to the typical textbook by emphasizing the “big ideas” of the discipline, and encouraging students to ask meaningful questions. Conley employs a “non-textbook” strategy of explaining complex concepts through personal examples and storytelling, and integrates coverage of social inequality throughout the text.
