The Sociology Project: Introducing the Sociological Imagination draws on the collective wisdom of expert faculty from the NYU Sociology Department to reveal how individuals are shaped by the contexts in which they live. Utilizing the big questions of the discipline as a framework, the authors seek to inspire your sociological imagination and to encourage you to question the world around us.

Version 3.0 explores important recent developments such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter, #MeToo and environmental movements. An updated chapter structure, including 3 new chapters, sheds light on the future of the labor market, political polarization and other resonant contemporary issues.
