Make the familiar new. Experience Sociology
empowers students to use the lenses of Culture, Structure, Power to see sociology everywhere. Bringing theory and sociological concepts together, Experience Sociology
helps students move beyond an individual perspective to gain a sociological perspective.Experience Sociology
engages students with a clear framework for understanding sociology based on three familiar concepts: Culture, Structure, and Power. For every topic in the book – from the family to the economy to the environment – students learn to recognize the effects of the culture that has taught them, see the structures that constrain or empower them, and notice how power operates at every level of society.
I have just completed my first semester using this book in my Introduction to Sociology classes. I am very impressed with it. I would say that, in my several decades of teaching this course, this book is the best I have used.
My book was up to date to meet the needs of my Sociology class. However, even though it’s a used book and I expected to find writing in the book I also found an old candy wrapper in the pages so my experience is satisfactory.
