A compelling design, research focus, and an engaging narrative defines Sociology: Compass for a New Social World. The renowned author team 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 text devotes more space than others do to drawing connections between objectivity and subjectivity in research, presenting a more realistic, and therefore more exciting, account of how sociologists practise their craft. Tables and graphs are not simply referred to, they are analyzed. Some theories are rejected, while others are endorsed. The author team brings depth to issues of diversity and globalization using personal and research experiences.
