Global Sociology: Introducing Five Contemporary Societies
By Schneider, Linda and Silverman, Arnold
Global Sociology is a softcover supplement to any standard sociology text, providing broad and comprehensive sociological description of five diverse contemporary societies with wide geographic distribution. The text is structured so as to parallel the major sections of a standard introductory sociology text. By comparing other societies with their own, students learn about the range of social variation, and they learn what makes their own society distinctive.
