Product Details

Product Description


Overwhelmingly [the students] indicated that they would recommend that this text continue to be used for this course.  This sounds like a resounding endorsement to me.

      - Professor, University of Manitoba


Using examples of popular culture will help in emphasizing the connection between this course and [the student’s] own career path (and life in general).  It will make it more relevant to them.

      - Linda McDevitt, Algonquin College


…this text is very comprehensive and has been a nice fit for this course.  It places a strong emphasis on theoretical and conceptual analysis which is incredibly important.  As well, while the text has strong Canadian content, it also has presented a nice global perspective. 

      - Professor, Fanshawe College


“Of course I will adopt the new edition. It’s the best text available in Canada.”

      - Professor, Kings, UWO


“I know we are only halfway through, but I am absolutely astonished by this book. I would suggest to anyone teaching a beginning sociology class to use it. Good book choice professors!”

      - Student, University of Windsor
