Reseña del editor:

From sectarians in Bombay to gang members flashing their signs in Chicago to nationalists in Northern Ireland, in today's world, culture can inflame such intense passions that people are often willing to die for their symbols and beliefs. Culture is such an important and personal aspect of defining one's self. It develops a person's norms, values, beliefs, and practices―essentially, it influences who they are as an individual and how they are perceived by society.

In the Second Edition of Culture and Societies in a Changing World, author Wendy Griswold offers a unique sociological perspective on the role culture plays in shaping our social world. By exposing readers to the effects of cultural misunderstandings, cultural conflicts, and cultural ignorance, this book enables students to develop a true appreciation of culture and society in a world that is changing at an accelerating pace.

Cultures and Societies in a Changing World is an excellent text for students studying a broad range of sociology courses including cultural sociology, social problems, globalization, and social change and development.
