Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0131922440, Paperback)

For one-quarter/semester Introductory Sociology courses. With a new groundbreaking design, relevant applications, and a wealth of instructor and student resources, Society: The Basics, Eighth Edition helps students see sociology in their everyday lives! John Macionis never started out to become a sociologist, but after enrolling in his first sociology course, he found that sociology helped him make sense of the world and that it was an interesting, exciting and fun discipline. He wanted to share this excitement with the introductory sociology student, to help them see sociology in their everyday lives, and this is what led him to make teaching and writing about sociology his life's work. "I have been adopting this text for my introductory classes for many years, and my students have consistently found it to be both a rewarding and entertaining learning experience. And over the years, these teaching assignments have run the gamut-both day and evening classes, both traditional and adult learners, both community colleges and universities. I have been loyal to this text because I can find no better teaching tool and because students say they could not meet high academic standards and expectations without it." Robert M. Khoury ~ St. John's University.
