Seeing Sociology in your Everyday Life
Macionis empowers students to understand the world around them through a sociological lens, so they can better understand sociology and their own lives.
Society: The Basics, 12th edition is written to help students find and use sociology in everyday life. With a complete theoretical framework and a global perspective, Society: The Basics offers students an accessible and relevant introduction to sociology.
The new edition continues to grow to meet readers’ changing needs. With a newly integrated pedagogical framework, readers are guided through both the text – and optional new MySocLab – to build their critical thinking skills while learning the fundamentals of sociology.
