This book is about the age-old concern with social change, which is one of the most important, challenging, and exciting topics in sociology. It is concerned with the questions of how society changes, in what direction, and by what forces this change occurs. Using exciting real-life case examples, this book draws attention to the characteristics, processes, and perspectives of social change in the United States and cross-culturally. It covers theories, patterns, spheres, duration, reactions, the impact, the costs, the strategies, and the assessment of social change. Because of its current and timely material, this is an excellent reader for social workers, counselors, and sociologists.
