Exploring the questions of today Sociology Now reflects the discipline today and explores the big questions about multiculturalism and globalization that sociologists ask. It explains how the classic concerns of sociology--social order, social conflict, social interaction--have been reshaped by new insights about multiculturalism and globalization. Sociology has always offered a way to make sense of the complex and sometimes contradictory forces that shape our social lives in any era. As Sociology Now explains sociology as both a body of knowledge and a "way of seeing," it shows how the forces of globalization and multiculturalism have come to preoccupy sociologists and influence the way they look at the events and experiences of the early twenty first century. Michael Kimmel, a leading sociologist and gender researcher, and co-author Amy Aronson, a journalist and media scholar, address questions regarding these forces head-on as they make a compelling case for the importance of sociology in the contemporary world. The Census Update program incorporates 2010 Census data into a course-simply and easily. The components of the Census Update Program include an updated census edition with all charts and graphs-to reflect the results of the 2010 Census. In addition, A Short Introduction to the U.S. Census is available and an updated MySocLab. Teaching & Learning Experience Personalize Learning - MySocLab delivers proven results in helping students succeed, provides engaging experiences that personalize learning, and comes from a trusted partner with educational expertise and a deep commitment to helping students and instructors achieve their goals. Improve Critical Thinking - Each chapter opener asks students to consider a paradox that illustrates the complexity of sociology. Engage Students - Unique pedagogical features help students see sociology as a science and understand how sociologists use research data. Explore Theory - Theory is discussed in context of multiculturalism and globalization. Understand Diversity - Race, class, and gender are discussed both as the foundations of our identity and as sources of inequality. Support Instructors - The test bank is edited by the authors.

Essentials of Sociology, adapted from George Ritzer’s Introduction to Sociology, provides the same rock-solid foundation from one of sociology's best-known thinkers in a shorter and more streamlined format. With new co-author Wendy Wiedenhoft Murphy, the Third Edition continues to illuminate traditional sociological concepts and theories and focuses on some of the most compelling features of contemporary social life: globalization, consumer culture, the internet, and the “McDonaldization” of society. New to this Edition New “Trending” boxes focus on influential books by sociologists that have become part of the public conversation about important issues. Replacing “Public Sociology” boxes, this feature demonstrates the diversity of sociology's practitioners, methods, and subject matter, featuring such authors as o Michelle Alexander (The New Jim Crow) o Elizabeth Armstrong and Laura Hamilton (Paying for the Party) o Matthew Desmond (Evicted) o Arlie Hochschild (Strangers in Their Own Land) o Eric Klinenberg (Going Solo) o C.J. Pascoe (Dude, You're a Fag) o Lori Peek and Alice Fothergill (Children of Katrina) o Allison Pugh (The Tumbleweed Society) Updated examples in the text and "Digital Living" boxes keep pace with changes in digital technology and online practices, including Uber, Bitcoin, net neutrality, digital privacy, WikiLeaks, and cyberactivism. New or updated subjects apply sociological thinking to the latest issues including: the 2016 U.S. election Brexit the global growth of ISIS climate change further segmentation of wealthy Americans as the "super rich" transgender people in the U.S. armed forces charter schools the legalization of marijuana the Flint water crisis fourth-wave feminism

"Sociology Now reflects the discipline today and explores the big questions about multiculturalism and globalization that sociologists ask." Sociology has always offered a way to make sense of the complex and sometimes contradictory forces that shape our social lives in any era. As "Sociology Now" explains sociology as both a body of knowledge and a "way of seeing," it shows how two such forces in particular have come to preoccupy sociologists and influence the way they look at the events and experiences of the early twenty first century: The first is globalization--the economic, political, cultural, and social interconnections among people and institutions all over the world. The second is multiculturalism--the recognition that race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, religion, and other statuses are sources of social inequality, but also the foundations of our identities. Michael Kimmel, a leading sociologist and gender researcher, and co-author Amy Aronson, a journalist and media scholar, address these questions head-on as they make a compelling case for the importance of sociology in the contemporary world.
