The seventh edition of Sociology: Compass for a New Social World shows students how thinking sociologically can help them draw connections between themselves and the social world. Sociological concepts are clearly connected to students? interests and experiences by taking universal and popular elements of contemporary culture and rendering them sociologically relevant. This edition includes timely issues such as COVID-19, cannabis legalization, racialization, and big data. The text devotes more space than others to drawing connections between objectivity and subjectivity in research, presenting a more realistic, and therefore more exciting, account of how sociologists practice their craft. Tables and graphs are not simply referred to, they are analyzed. Some theories are rejected, while others are endorsed. The renowned author team brings depth to issues of diversity and globalization using personal and research experiences, making this text unique in the Introduction to Sociology course market.
  • This text illustrates key sociological ideas by using examples from popular culture that resonate deeply with student interests and experiences.
  • Sociology and the Media boxes analyze problematic aspects of social media and provide brief reviews of movies and television shows, highlighting sociological issues media raise and the sociological insights they embody. These boxes now include recent movies and TV shows, and timely issues have also been explored, including government digital censorship and surveillance and how social media helped Trump win.
  • New research findings are integrated throughout the text and incorporate data from the most recent Canadian census. This edition now contains more than 60 new and revised figures as well as 25 new and revised tables.
  • The following topics have been added, increased and updated: reaching effects of COVID-19, dating and hookup culture, big data, hip-hop culture, the legalization of marijuana, forms of punishment other than incarceration, universal basic income, the rise of right-wing populism, intersectionality, racialization, and surveillance.
  • Social Policy boxed features cover hot topics ranging from how authorities seek to control protest digitally, the ban on religious symbols in Quebec, the Canadian pipeline debate, the decline and revival of Indigenous and other languages, and the use of facial recognition software in policing.
  • Features multiple pedagogical aids including chapter objectives listed at the beginning of each chapter, a Time to Review feature at the end of each major section of every chapter, a detailed summary at the end of each chapter, and definitions of key terms in the margins of the text.
  • Streamlined table of contents, with a reduced number of chapters from 22 to 19.
  • Streamlined pedagogy, with a reduction to two box types per chapter, Social Policy and Sociology and the Media.
  • Increased coverage of Indigenous content throughout the text.
