About the book:

This book offers primary source articles from both the classical literature of sociology and contemporary works. The classic selections include readings Marx, Weber, and Durkheim. The selections included here are both central to the classic tradition and highly readable. Selected contemporary articles focus on current topics of interest to sociologist, including AIDS, gender-related issues, minority groups, and homelessness. In time, a few of these selections may become classics in their own right. The selections were chosen to challenge preconceived notions and conventional wisdom about the topics covered. The book is designed to motivate students to discover, through the sociological perspective, the hidden nature that often lies in familiar aspects of everyday life. It is divided into five units. Unit One introduces the enterprise of sociology. Unit Two feature topics relating to the intersection of culture, social organization, and the individual. The Third Unit considers various forms of social inequality based on class, ethnicity, gender, and age, while the fourth unit focuses primarily on social institutions. Unit Five covers issues confronting a society in flux.
