Change the way your students see the world
In Revel® Sociology, author John Macionis empowers your students to change the way they view the world by showing them how to see sociology in everyday life. 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 Digital Update offers fresh interactives and Current Event Bulletins and updated data throughout.
