Throughout Sociology, author John Macionis empowers you to see sociology in everyday life, changing the way you view the world. Taking an enlightening, practical approach, Macionis guides you through the theories and research that make up the discipline. By challenging how you think about both your own life and society as a whole, Macionis helps you better understand the world we all share.
The 17th Edition offers a new chapter dedicated to mass and social media, the first in an Introductory Sociology text. In keeping with his longtime focus on diversity in US society, Macionis continues to highlight dimensions of social difference including race, class and gender as well as transgender and disability issues.
