A down-to-earth approach to sociology
With Revel™ Essentials of Sociology: A Down-to-Earth Approach, author Jim Henslin takes students on an intellectual adventure of discovery through firsthand accounts of his travels around the world, original photographs, and personal reflections. Using his hallmark down-to-earth approach, Henslin presents a relatable, sincere, student-friendly narrative that centers around a traditional three-perspectives framework. The 13th Edition of Henslin's brief text includes engaging new content — such as the Pearson Originals docuseries, Applying Sociology to Your Life feature boxes, Hearing from Students videos, and Hearing from the Author audio clips — all of which help students gain a better understanding of both society and themselves.
