With SEEING SOCIOLOGY: AN INTRODUCTION, respected author and award-winning professor Joan Ferrante illustrates sociology’s relevance to daily life through the use of everyday images and pictures. These “SocScenes” allow students to read about and visually apply sociological concepts. The text emphasizes contemporary topics such as tattoos and body piercings as expressions of identity; commercialization of childhood; and human-animal relationships. The easy-to-manage, modular table of contents allows for flexibility and synthesis of information.
