Acclaimed by instructors and students alike for its fresh, innovative approach to the discipline, Elements of Sociology is back and better than ever in this brand new sixth edition. New topics-including increased coverage on social theory, COVID-19, socialization, gender, race, sexuality, legalized cannabis, the opioid crisis, and the climate change protests-keep the book contemporary and relatable for students. Incorporating coverage of ethics and statistical analysis into the research chapter, the new edition provides the tools students need to read statistics and research more critically. Throughout these updates, John Steckley's narrative approach captivates as he explores the theories, structures, and relationships that make up our social world. Filled with anecdotes, examples, illustrations, and critical thinking questions, the sixth edition of Elements challenges students to think differently about both sociology and the world around them.
