Change the way your students see the world
In Revel™ Society: The Basics, author John Macionis empowers your students to change the way they view the world by showing them how to see sociology in everyday life. Throughout this brief text, Macionis takes an enlightening and practical approach to the traditional three-perspectives approach, guiding students step by step through the theories and research that make up the discipline. By challenging the way they think about both their own lives and society as a whole, Macionis helps students achieve a better understanding of the world we all share. The 15th Edition offers a new chapter dedicated to the history, evolution, and impact of social media plus engaging new features such as the Pearson Originals docuseries and Current Event Bulletins.
