A down-to-earth approach to sociology
With Revel™ Sociology: A Down-to-Earth Approach, author Jim Henslin takes students on an intellectual adventure of discovery through firsthand accounts of his travels around the world, original photographs, and personal reflections. Using his hallmark down-to-earth approach, Henslin presents a relatable, sincere, student-friendly narrative that centers around a traditional three-perspectives framework. Available for Fall 2020 classes, the Digital Update includes coverage of contemporary topics — including the latest developments in technology, health, and medicine — to help students gain a better understanding of both society and themselves.
Revel is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.
