Rethinking Society in the 21st Century PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Rethinking Society in the 21st Century free pdf This unique collection of readings maps out the concepts sociologists use to understand the foundations of society -- families, economy and labour, education, health, and health care. This engaging and thought provoking book weaves together feminist, class-conscious, and anti-racist approaches to the study of Introductory Sociology. "Rethinking Society" balances classical theoretical approaches in sociology -- Durkheim, Marx, and Mills -- with contemporary approaches found in the work of Dorothy Smith and Michel Foucault, for example. Following this exemplary grounding, Rethinking Society then introduces the foundations of society -- socialisation, social interaction, and culture -- as well as the major social institutions of the family, the economy, and labour. Crime, moral regulation, and social justice are presented in a progressive light while population, globalisation, and the New World Order complete this well-rounded introduction to Canadian sociology.
