1st edition


For courses in Introductory Sociology
Teach students to use evidence and insights to understand sociological phenomena
Revel™ Sociology: Evidence and Insights
guides students to analyze society through a combination of data and classic and contemporary sociological perspectives. In today’s era of “alternative facts” and “fake news,” authors Timothy Curry, Robert Jiobu, and Cynthia Fabrizio Pelak give students the tools to distinguish between sociological insights and claims not supported by data. They apply their dual evidence-and-sociological-insights approach to examine the intersectionality of race/ethnicity, class, and gender — and to explore related issues of economic inequality, immigration, and racial and gender exploitation, around which political controversies continue to swirl. By asking readers to make arguments from different sociological perspectives and to describe the evidence that supports those perspectives, Sociology: Evidence and Insights empowers students to bridge the great political and social divides that characterize our world today.
