Sharpen your sociological skills, connect with sociology, and master the concepts with SOCIOLOGY IN OUR TIMES: THE ESSENTIALS, Seventh Edition. Vivid and compelling, Kendall's text uses real-life stories, told by the people who have lived them, to introduce you to the study of sociology. Kendall takes you on an exciting journey that lets you experience sociological theory and research and see for yourself how it can be applied to everyday life and to the pressing social issues we face. As you explore issues such as body image, poverty, suicide, and fake news media, you'll discover the relevance of sociology to your own life, and you'll see how accurately the book's chapter-opening first-person commentaries mirror the diversity in society. Kendall also presents ideas on how you can get involved and effect social change in both your immediate and extended communities.
