Description

This book features useful examples, frequent applications to real-world living, and cross-cultural perspectives. The author writes with a precision and clarity lacking in many sociology texts and makes the presentation of sociology both informative and interesting. The author's love of the field is apparent on every page of this involving text, and students will appreciate the way that Doob tells the story of sociology by presenting sociology as a set of accounts or narratives about specific sociological issues or events. While doing this, Doob also offers extremely thorough coverage of sociology including strong theory, fundamental concepts, and sociological ideas.
