This brief introductory text uses a comparative, multicultural, and cross-cultural approach to give students a clearer insight into the field of sociology. By taking students beyond the bounds of their own culture, NesSmith shows how the elements of society are at once universal, yet defined and expressed differently by different cultures. The text's application-oriented approach provides readers with a model for thinking sociologically and introduces sociologcal concepts and theories as useful, relevant tools that can be applied to specific situations. Students are encouraged to take an active role in the learning process and formulate their own opinions about controversial issues.
