Description : Comprehensive and engaging, this textbook introduces students not only to foundational sociological work, but also to insights from contemporary sociological theory and research. This combined approach ensures that students become familiar with the core of sociology: key concepts, theories, perspectives, methods, and findings. Students will acquire the ability to think like a sociologist, investigate and understand complex social phenomena. This text presents a complete sociological toolkit, guiding students in the art of asking good sociological questions, devising a sophisticated theory and developing methodologies to observe social phenomena. The chapters of this book build cumulatively to equip students with the tools to quickly understand any new sociological topic or contemporary social problem. The textbook also applies the sociological toolkit to selected key sociological issues, showing how specific sociological topics can be easily investigated and understood using this approach. Taking a global and comparative perspective, the book covers a rich diversity of sociological topics and social problems, such as crime, immigration, race and ethnicity, media, education, family, organizations, gender, poverty, modernization and religion. The book presents a range of helpful pedagogical features throughout, such as: Chapter overview and learning goals summaries at the start of every chapter; Thinking like a sociologist boxes, encouraging students to reflect critically on learning points; Principle boxes, summarizing key sociological principles; Theory schema boxes, presenting sociological theories in a clear, understandable manner; Stylized facts highlighting key empirical findings and patterns; Key concepts and summary sections at the end of every chapter; and Companion website providing additional material for every chapter for both instructors and students, including PowerPoint lecture notes, discussion questions and answers, multiple-choice questions, further reading and a full glossary of terms. This clear and accessible text is essential reading for students taking introductory courses in sociology. It will also be useful for undergraduate and graduate courses in other social science disciplines, such as psychology, economics, human geography, demography, communication studies, education sciences, political science and criminology.

Description : Avant -Garde Sociology focuses upon building the theoretical position that social reality is defined as seven primary areas that simultaneously work as independent variables and might also be influenced as dependent variables in any social structural relationship or entity. In addition, this book underscores the importance of identifying those five areas of being human that impact and explain individual human behavior and those behavioral actions modeled in other types of social structures and social structural relationships. Some other progressive ideas this book offers is viewing the importance of sociology’s role in explaining the origins of behavior in reference to identifying stake issues in individuals and other social structural entities as well as making reference to those methods of power utilized in social structure relationships. Sociological explanations for deviant behavior are also identified and a unique theoretical process is acknowledged in reference to understanding the evolution of social change. Of greatest significance is that Avante-Garde Sociology helps the student learner comprehend that human behavior and it’s explanations are complex; likewise, the social science of sociology should be taking seriously as a relevant theoretical consideration for: understanding human behavior in love relationships, marriages, and families; as a significant tool in identifying social problems and/or considering how to develop policies or programs to alleviate various social maladies ; comprehending those multiple issues surrounding the operation of a business, and for highlighting the significant role sociology plays when studying and assessing the origins of many mental health illnesses suffered by individuals. Ultimately, this book instructs the student learner to understand that utilizing the seven primary areas of social reality as a tool of analysis for any social topic of consideration yields a plethora of relevant knowledge either for extending sociological theory or understanding human behavior.
