Thirty Readings in Introductory Sociology introduces students to the field of sociology in an engaging, accessible manner. Designed to be used alone or with its companion, Ten Lessons in Introductory Sociology, the book is organized around four themes commonly examined in introductory courses: What is sociology? What unites society? What divides society? and How do societies change? Rather than provide encyclopedic responses to such questions, Thirty Readings in Introductory Sociology engages students in critical thinking while presenting key concepts and methods in sociology. Edited by Kenneth A. Gould and Tammy L. Lewis, the text raises sociological questions, applies a sociological lens, illustrates how data are used, and presents core topics in a way that is easy for students to grasp. Each section begins with an introduction by Gould and Lewis, followed by three readings: one classical, one that uses qualitative data, and a third that uses quantitative data.

Review:


"This book is ideal. It does a good job of covering a wide variety of topics and readings. I like the unifying questions rather than the 'million short chapters on each sub-topic in sociology' approach."--Jeff Timberlake, University of Cincinnati


"I like the way that Thirty Readings is conceived, with the classic-qualitative-quantitative format in each section. It covers key topics in sociology in enough detail to form a foundation for students, without all the distractions and glitz and overreaching of the big, hugely expensive textbooks. It provides rich, well-written illustrative articles that match the foundational course content and extend it into particular areas."--Joshua Gamson, University of San Francisco


"This is an innovative book that introduces sociology to students in a way that focuses on the key elements of the sociological approach, and that is likely to make a bigger impact on students. It focuses on retaining the most important issues in sociology as a discipline as opposed to memorizing terms, and I think students will find this approach accessible and relevant."--Kelly Dagan, Illinois College


"The book takes an excellent pedagogical approach that guides students toward thinking sociologically."--Ida Rousseau-Mukenge, Morehouse College
