In Conflict and Order: Understanding Society presents 1 of the central questions of sociology: Who benefits from the existing customs and social order, and who does not? Authors D. Stanley Eitzen, Kelly Eitzen Smith, and Maxine Baca Zinn offer a realistic appraisal of society from a conflict perspective. Throughout the text, they lead readers to think critically about social arrangements with an eye toward restructuring society along more humane lines.
The 15th Edition offers coverage of contemporary trends that illuminate the state of social problems today. Fresh topics include conflicts over gun control and public feelings about the media and “fake news.” A new chapter on health and healthcare covers the rising costs of healthcare in America and the politics of healthcare reform.
