Sociology NOW offers a fresh way to make sense of the social world. Reinventing the 3rd Edition, authors Michael Kimmel, Amy Aronson and Tristan Bridges introduce a contemporary paradigm called the iSoc framework. This paradigm empowers you to view the world through 5 sociological lenses: identity, inequality, interactions, institutions and intersections. This approach helps you better understand sociological research and concepts, and how they are relevant in today's world.
In addition to the iSoc framework, the 3rd Edition includes coverage of the 2016 presidential vote and new chapters devoted to age and education. New learning objectives tied to the major subheadings in every chapter identify the key concepts on which you should focus.
