Summary

Understand how society works - and how to make it better

It's impossible to exist in the contemporary world without being aware that powerful social forces, ideas, and movements - #MeToo, climate change, and Black Lives Matter, to name just a few - are having far-reaching impacts on how we think and live. But why are they happening? And what are their likely effects? The new edition of Sociology for Dummies gives you the tools to step back from your personal experience and study these questions objectively, testing the observable phenomena of the human world against established theories and making usable sense of the results.

In a friendly, jargon-free style, sociologist and broadcaster Jay Gabler introduces you to sociology's history and basic methods, and - once you have your sociological lens adjusted - makes it clear how to survey the big questions of culture, gender, ethnicity, religion, politics, and crime with new eyes. You'll find everything you need to succeed in an introductory sociology class as well as to apply sociological ideas to give you extra insight into your personal and professional lives.
