"This book engages and challenges from page one. It demonstrates page after page, in both the chapters and topical essays, that the sociological perspective is relevant and valuable for understanding social organization and social life in this age of globalization."
"This is clearly a better book than other introductory books that claim to take a global perspective: better because the theoretical lens is more sophisticated and timely; better because the organization makes sense, because the arguments are coherent, and because I can imagine that others will find it possible to use in the classroom."
"I like the global approach of the book. Most introductory texts focus narrowly upon American society, and this book does a much better job of locating national analysis within the global context."
"Each chapter contains rich, timely case studies and vignettes¾
on teen suicide, student credit card debt, genocide in Rwanda, the World Trade Organization protests¾
that personalize or contextualize the topic. At the same time, major sociological concepts, theories, and methodological principles are covered and applied. Strong integration between chapters provides continuity and comparison."
A great resource for looking at issues globally. Good coherant arguments, and plenty of case studies and vignettes. Great use of methodoloigcal principles and their application throughout.
