A core text that can be used with a wide variety of supplements for junior/senior and beginning-level graduate courses in Social Change.Ideal for those new to the subject, this compact and flexibly organized introduction to social change explores the "big" issues, but in a way that engages the life experiences of individuals (the "micro-macro" connection). Unlike most texts-which focus on particular types of change at particular levels of analysis and with particular theoretical slants-it shows the connection between many issues, using current data and a balanced discussion of major perspectives, theories, and models.show more
