A brief book that uses examples from a college or university setting to illustrate society in terms of social groups and forces.

College and Society is based on the premise that colleges are not “ivory towers” that stand in contrast to the larger society. Rather, the author argues that colleges tend to reflect many of the same social structures, culturally based expectations of social conduct, and patterns of interaction seen at work in the larger society.

For anyone interested in learning basic concepts of Sociology.
