Overview

This ISBN is for the Pearson eText and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplement.

Sociology provides students with the opportunity to connect their own lived experiences to a broader societal context. One of the hopes of the authors is that students will find that the topics addressed in this book relate to their own lives. The textbook addresses many of the pressing concerns facing Canadians and global citizens in the twenty-first century. For more than 150 years, sociologists have been working to better understand how society operates. Sociologists may not have all the answers, but we have learned quite a lot. A beginning course in sociology is your introduction to the fascinating and very useful study of the world around you. After all, we all have a stake in understanding our world and, as best we can, improving it.

Sociology, Tenth Canadian Edition, provides a comprehensive view of our social world. There has been rapid social change in so many areas of life, such as how social media is transforming our world. Sociological theories provide us with unique ways of understanding the world around us and our place in it. While the text has a Canadian focus, the chapters also speak to broader global trends and social problems. We encourage our readers to develop a sense of curiosity about the world, to ask questions about the world, and to go beyond this text to learn more about the issues that you care about.
