SOCIOLOGY: UNDERSTANDING A DIVERSE SOCIETY, FOURTH EDITION, is a theoretically balanced, mainstream, comprehensive text characterized by its emphasis on diversity. In every chapter, students explore fascinating topics (Hurricane Katrina, same-sex marriage, abuses at Abu Ghraib prison) as well as research and data that illustrate how class, race-ethnicity, gender, age, geographic residence, and sexual orientation relate to sociological topics discussed in that chapter. This text provides a solid research orientation to the basic principles of sociology yet it is fascinating and accessible, appealing to the ever-changing student population, and inviting students to view the world through a sociological lens. Andersen and Taylor get students thinking for themselves about sociology, with the book’s Debunking Society’s Myths features and critical thinking exercises. This is the book that will grab student interest and inspire them to keep reading and asking questions!
