Discovering Sociology takes students on a journey from public institutions like work and higher education to the private sphere of intimate family life, paying particular attention to the ways in which social inequality (race, class, gender, and sexuality) is reproduced and challenged in each one.
Discovering Sociology has it all: an exceptional author with a fresh perspective, a richly interactive online approach from concept to release, and the service of a small, but innovative publisher with an impeccable record of instructor and student satisfaction. Suitable for online, traditional classrooms, or hybrid/blended environments.
