Introduction to Sociology focuses only on what students need to know in order to master the sociological concepts taught in the introductory course. Each chapter in the Tenth Edition follows the same consistent four-part structure: First, the authors introduce the basic concepts before discussing sociological theory.
Introduction to Sociology
They then turn their attention to current research and finally wrap up by exploring unanswered questions that face sociologists today. This consistent, thoughtful organization--coupled with Learning Objectives, Concept Checks, and Big Picture concept maps--keeps students focused on the core concepts. Now supported by InQuizitive, the Tenth Edition builds on the book's long-standing strengths: emphasis on linking micro and macro sociology, coverage of the best recent research, and an exceptionally affordable price relative to other comprehensive texts.

An Introduction to Sociology

If you want to learn sociology and its By Jonq on Dec 13, There is a lot of wordy nonsense in this book. Doesn't really focus on the big picture but provides a bunch of examples on everything.
Book condition guidelines
If you want to learn sociology and its a new field of study for you, this book will rip your enthusiasm to shreds. The book came in good condition though. By Karina Garcia on Feb 14, The book in it itself is okay. Gives ALOT of examples, but is not the greatest in the world. A lot of useless words. Alot of fluff good questions to ponder upon but the answers are not always directly in the book which I think beats the purpose of the book with questions.
Amazon did an awesome job in getting the book for me on time and I was very satisfied with its conditions.
