Adapted from Henslin’s best-selling comprehensive textbook, Sociology: A Down-To-Earth Approach Core Concepts 6th edition provides in-depth coverage of 10 high-priority topics that are the foundation of many introductory sociology courses.
This unique PDF etextbook offers an economical and concise format without sacrificing depth of coverage. Unlike a “brief” or “essentials” textbook, the 10 chapters that make up Core Concepts are not edited down from a longer ebook. Instead, they provide full coverage of those topics that instructors emphasize the most in a one-semester or one-term introductory sociology course. Like James Henslin’s other books, it features the author’s familiar “down-to-earth” approach and personal writing style that highlight the sociology of everyday life. With personal reflection, wit, and real illuminating examples, Henslin shares with readers a passion for sociology unmatched by any other introductory textbook. In addition to this trademark down-to-earth approach, other distinctive features include: the globalization of capitalism, comparative perspectives, and visual presentations of sociology.
