“A 10-chapter book that gets to the core of Sociology.”

Concise coverage, balanced viewpoints, and an attractive full-colour design characterize this popular introductory sociology text.  In just 10 brief chapters, Core Concepts in Sociology covers the key material required for a short introductory course and reflects the authors’ careful consideration of the needs of Canadian classes.  The innovative “In-Class Edition” format helps students actively engage with the learning process, by combining the text and study guide into one source, by including study tips right alongside the text, and by including a bound-in study card.  In the second edition, the lively student-centred writing style has been maintained, with an increased depth to coverage of theory and methods, particularly feminism and qualitative research methods.  Also, this new edition now includes MySocLab, the innovative resource centre for research and study aids.  With these and other valuable features, Core Concepts in Sociology will be a strong asset to students.
