9780393912173: The Real World: An Introduction to Sociology, 3rd Edition

The most relevant textbook for today’s students.

The Real World succeeds in classrooms, because it focuses on the perspective that students care about most?their own. In every chapter, the authors use activities, examples from everyday life, and popular culture to draw students into thinking sociologically and to make abstract concepts more concrete.
