"That the chapters begin with a case, discuss the case, and end with another case is a most useful structure—one that assists those of us unfamiliar with the process, yet also works for those familiar with cases." 

Sally Raskoff
University of Southern California

"Using this book will help students gain competency in several areas that are central to the learning goals and outcomes of general education at the baccalaurate level: problem solving, communication, analysis and critical thinking, and perspective. Nothing could be better for introductory sociology today than this innovative text."
