This book introduces readers to sociology using an eclectic approach which is tied together by systematically highlighting two aspects of social change -- 1) the change or contrast between social life organized around personal, communal relations and social life organized around impersonal, associational relations; and 2) the ongoing social processes and the implications they have for life in the twenty-first century. Offers a unique perspective that shows how society and the individual work together to shape both the present and the future. Analyzes the individual and society from different theoretical views -- functionalism, conflict theory, and symbolic interaction in both discussion and application. Covers: What Is Sociology?; Culture, Society, and Social Change; Socialization and Deviance; Interaction, Groups, and Organizations; Population, Ecology, and Urbanization; SOCIAL INEQUALITY: Inequalities of Social Class; Inequalities of Race and Ethnicity; Inequalities of Gender; SOCIAL INSTITUTIONS: The Economy; The Political Order; Marriage and the Family; Education; Religion; Medicine and Health Care; WORKING FOR CHANGE: Collective Social Action. For anyone interested in an introduction to sociology.
