This anthology includes a range of styles and examples that reflect common experiences and phenomena; important social issues and problems; the relationship between the individual and society; and a sociological perspective on specific historic events. The new Eleventh Edition includes several new readings that convey the best in critical contemporary sociology with an eye toward current social issues. About the Author David M.
