Adapted from the sixth edition of Sociology: A Brief Introduction, this Penguin Academics Series title is a brief, one-color, low-cost version of that text.

This introductory text uses a balanced and systematic application of sociological theory to help students see the difference between myths and realities about society. It provides integrated coverage of feminist views on various social issues and discusses the contributions of feminist theories. Also found in every chapter are "Global Analysis" sections, showing how people around the world live, and "Social Diversity" sections, highlighting not only the problems of women and minorities, but also their achievements.
