New edition of a text in which Andersen (sociology and women's studies, U. of Delaware) and Taylor (sociology, Princeton U.) introduce the basic principles of sociology by linking basic concepts to theory and research. The 23 chapters are organized around the themes of looking behind the facades of everyday life, critical thinking, diversity, global perspective, current theory and research, social change and policy, and integrating the internet. New features include a chapter on crime and criminal justice, and a focus on showing students how society is in a constant state of change and stability. Annotation c.
