Description

Product Description

OFFICIAL PRINT VERSION: OpenStax OER official printed textbooks, published by XanEdu Publishing (XanEdu is OpenStax official print provider), ships from and sold by Amazon.com

ABOUT THIS BOOK: This is the most affordable printed OpenStax book available. As an OpenStax Partner we print all OpenStax textbooks with a unique soft cover and BW interior pages. The textbook content is exactly the same as the free digital OpenStax book (Digital ISBN\-13: 978\-1\-947172\-11\-1). This textbook is available for free download at the OpenStax website, but as many students prefer the convenience of a printed book, we offer this book in partnership with OpenStax to provide an affordable printed option for college students.

BOOK SUMMARY: Introduction to Sociology 2e adheres to the scope and sequence of a typical, one\-semester introductory sociology course. It offers comprehensive coverage of core concepts, foundational scholars, and emerging theories. The textbook presents section reviews with rich questions, discussions that help students apply their knowledge, and features that draw learners into the discipline in meaningful ways. The second edition has been updated significantly to reflect the latest research and current, relevant examples. Changes made in Introduction to Sociology 2e are described in the preface to help instructors transition to the second edition.

ABOUT OPENSTAX: OpenStax course materials are the most widely used OER textbooks in the world. Always free in digital format, the books are also available low cost in full\-color hardcover and B\x26W paperback print formats.

I bought the textbook new from Amazon, thankfully at a reasonable price, because I just couldn''t stand staring at the computer screen for hours and hours a day. I prefer being able to highlight and turn real pages.

If this book is the book your class is using. It is a broad spectrum of overviews into sociology and what the science of sociology is and how those factors are around us every day. I''m enjoying the book, the chapters are reasonable in length (18-22 pages) and they really tried to make this a true introduction to the topic so you can easily grasp the concept.

From what I can tell, the textbook has served us well for the course, and I''m almost done. FastTrack course with a $30 brand new textbook. Thanks OpenStax :)

It was an informative book. It got me thought my Sociology 100H class and even helped me, or rather my group, with our honors project we had to do and even my mid-term essay. All in all, informative and helpful for intro!

This book is awesome! It gives you insight into today''s society and the different theories that make up how we view society. It really gives you a different outlook on life and shapes your perspectives of what you already believe, but at the same time challenges your thinking about EVERYTHING!!! You''ll constantly ask yourself WHO, WHAT, WHEN, WHERE, WHY & HOW! It can be a really great conversation piece to spark and challenge your thinking and ideas of our society!

Black & White Pages Inaccurate.
Reviewed in the United States on March 3, 2020
Be aware. Because this textbook’s pages are in black & white, the sequence is inaccurate. Which makes it difficult to find assignment information. I’m sending mine back & using the free online book.

This book is not a textbook. It will further damage the struggling image of social sciences to be taken seriously as legitimate science. This is the authors own perspective with cherry-picked referencing and opinions to support a politically correct agenda. Perhaps education has always had a hidden agenda. Now there seems to be no attempt to even hide that agenda. Now it is why let fact get in the way of a political agenda. The silent majority needs to wake up. The radical few are pushing a very dangerous agenda on children in the name of education. Education is not politics it should teach basic agreed facts for the younger generations to build a solid base to go out in the world and be a gift to the world, not terminal cancer.
