Essentials Of Sociology (eBook)
de Wendy Wiedenhoft Murphy e George Ritzer
Sobre o livro
Join the conversation with one of sociology's best-known thinkers.Essentials of Sociology, Second Edition adapted from George Ritzer's Introduction to Sociology, Third Edition, provides the same rock-solid foundation in a shorter and more streamlined format. Like the original Ritzer text, Essentials of Sociology illuminates traditional sociological concepts and theories, and focuses on some of the most compelling contemporary social phenomena: globalization, consumer culture, the Internet, and the ';McDonaldization' of society. As technology flattens the globe, students are challenged to apply a sociological perspective to their world, and to see how ';public' sociologists are engaging with the critical issues of today.
