In this contributed text, students are introduced to the fascinating world of sociology through an impressive collection of writings. Editors Lorne Tepperman and Patrizia Albanese have assembled an array of experts to explain key concepts of sociology in ways that students will understand and enjoy. The subjects covered-including socialization, gender, education, deviance, politics, and the environment-are relevant, relatable, and combine the essentials of sociology with additional coverage of issues not typically featured in other texts.
Sociology: A Canadian Perspective explores Canadian society and its place in the world. The core text is aimed very specifically at full-year introductory sociology courses, instructors who want a higher-level text to challenge and engage their students, and instructors who prefer the flexibility in choice (in terms of content and ancillary material) that a big book brings. All aspects of the text have been thoroughly revised and updated for this second edition including new chapters on theory, mass media, and sexuality, as well as new references, inserts, learning materials, and photos. As an added feature, the text now comes packaged with engaging video clips from the CBC on DVD. These mini-documentaries relate to topics in the text and are guaranteed to stimulate classroom discussion.
