Sociology, Second Edition, is the first textbook to make globalization a focal point while also providing comprehensive coverage of standard topics on American society. The global focus is developed with in-text examples and discussions, globalization boxes, end-of-chapter globalization sections, and an extensive map program. The global theme complements an emphasis on diversity, which helps readers overcome ethnocentrism and better appreciate the importance of multicultural understanding in the emerging global society. Silenced Voices boxes augment in-text discussions and examples that examine the impact of race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality, and class and age on human experience. A focus on critical analysis is fostered by Critical Assessment sections, which weigh the strengths and limitations of major theories, as well as by Critical Thinking boxes. New practice tests with answers facilitate students preparation for quizzes and exams.
