This concise text carries the public sociology movement into the introductory sociology classroom. While teaching students to think sociologically and to develop a sociological eye, it also demonstrates how sociology can be used as a tool for improving society. As they explains the discipline′s basic theories and concepts, the authors provide many examples of "engaged" sociologists who are working to solve some of society′s most intractable problems. Through a number of exercises and projects in every chapter, students are encouraged to become engaged in their own communities. The authors put their own commitment to public sociology into action by donating 10% of their royalties to a non-profit organization that works to alleviate social injustice.
