Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0136145388, Paperback)

Cutting-edge in both perspective and approach, this introduction to the social sciences covers ALL the traditional social science concepts — but views them through a modern prism. Using a lively, clear style, it provides a genuinely interdisciplinary exploration of contributions from all six social science disciplines (sociology, anthropology, psychology, economics, political science, geography). Case studies, feature film analyses, maps, and photos highlight important historical events and concepts throughout. Shows the big picture of both transnational and international changes in communications, transportation, economics, finance, environment, and military matters. Presents the world in a fully modern sense — recognizing that it is vastly different today and that this difference affects the subject of the social sciences (human behavior) greatly. Examines many new ideas that have emerged in the last decade — e.g., the expansion of world and regional trade, debt-for-nature swaps as antidotes to deforestation, etc.
