Sociology A Global Introduction Summary

Sociology A Global Introduction: (Euro Edn) by John J. Macionis

With increasing student numbers and greater diversity within the student population, sociology lecturers are inevitably looking for new books that will help them teach. Macionis/Plummer, Sociology: A Global Introduction does just that. With European society as its central focus, issues are discussed in greater depth than existing textbooks, with the inclusion of many European theorists. It still contains US data so that there are interesting comparisons between life in the UK and the US. Of particular significance is the book's global perspective where Macionis/Plummer situate the student reader in relation to the rest of the world and not just within his/her own society. This is featured heavily throughout the text with the use of global maps and boxes. The excellent pedagogy and superior supplements package will be a welcome facilitator for anyone teaching a large and diverse student body. The student is encouraged to engage with the subject through a variety of pedagogical features such as opening vignettes, boxes and critical thinking questions. Furthermore with a 'Going Further' resources section, the student is enticed to study the subject in more depth with lists of introductory and classic readings, as well as journals and specific websites and addresses of relevant research institutes.
