The essential textbook for teaching students how issues in our global society connect to their own lives.Essentials of Sociology is organized around two themes: globalization and everyday life and the connections between micro- and macrosociology. The authors have updated the Third Edition with new “Do It Yourself” features that show students how these specific themes and sociology more generally relate to their lives. In addition, the new design―including new infographics―makes sociological data more concrete and accessible.
