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.
