Adapted from Henslin’s best-selling comprehensive text, Core Concepts provides in-depth coverage of ten high-priority topics that are the foundation of many introductory sociology courses.
This unique paperback offers a concise and economical format without sacrificing depth of coverage. Unlike a “brief” or “essentials” text, the ten chapters that make up Core Concepts are not edited down from a longer book. Instead, they provide full coverage of those topics that instructors emphasize the most in a one-semester or one-term introductory sociology course. Like Henslin’s other texts, it features the author’s familiar “down-to-earth” approach and personal writing style that highlight the sociology of everyday life. With wit, personal reflection, and illuminating examples, Henslin shares with readers a passion for sociology unmatched by any other introductory text.
I bought this book for my soc class, it was perfect it even came with the online portion, however i had to return it because my professor was no longer going to use this book.
This is one way cheaper than the 5th edition and there is not a much difference besides page. This one did the job for me instead of the latest edition.
This is the book my granddaughter chose in her college nursing studies. It was a very helpfull, valuable and important book in her nursing studies.
Book was really easy to use. A very interesting read with very little use of large complicated words. Each topic was thoroughly expressed and still remained interesting, not boring at all. I like this one, and the fact that its in the kindle version means I don’t have to bring along a book with me, so wherever I am, the information stays at my fingertips.
