Key Ideas in Sociology - new book

ISBN: 9780761988236

With each passing generation, contemporary members of society are intrigued by how those who lived before them viewed and dealt with their changing world. Newer generations borrow ideas from their predecessors and adapt those ideas to new circumstances in order to define and manage social change. Key Ideas in Sociology, Second Edition explores some of the major ideas that have developed out of this tradition and evaluates their origins, their development, and their relevance at the dawn of the twenty-first century. The book follows the course of key concepts that have shaped sociological discourse from the founding period in the nineteenth century to the present, and examines four key ideas that have played a central role-industrial society, democracy, individualism, and modernity. Author Peter Kivisto brings these concepts alive by connecting them to the legendary figures responsible for developing, revising, and expanding sociological theory. Peter Kivisto, Books, Social and Cultural Studies, Key Ideas in Sociology Books>Social and Cultural Studies Key Ideas in Sociology is the only compact and portable book for undergraduate readers that links issues regarding post-modern society to the ideas and individuals that gave rise to sociological thinking in the late 19th century. This is the ideal text for idea and history oriented introductory sociology courses. Features/Benefits: · Ideal for supplemental use in writing-intensive introductory sociology courses and undergraduate Social Theory courses. · Students too often learn about social theorists as unconnected with one another. KEY IDEAS shows how ideas developed by one theorist evolve and are further shaped by subsequent theorists, reflecting on different historical circumstances. · Offers a genuinely integrated view of the history of social thought, linking classical sociological ideas to today's thinking about contemporary life. · Shows how theorizing is not a dry, abstract exercise, but a practical human necessity in the ongoing quest to understand and cope with our complex and ever-changing social conditions. New to This Edition: · Timeline in the front of the book will help orient to the historical period when the ideas were generated. · In the second edition theoretical ideas from women and people of color will be given greater coverage. · Chapter summaries and review questions have been added to chapters in the second edition. · New chapter on globalization will broaden the book's focus.
