Sociology in Our Times, Sixth Canadian Edition, highlights the relevance of sociology to students' lives by including a diversity of classical and contemporary theory, interesting and relevant research, and lived experiences that accurately mirror the diversity in society itself. Praised for their writing style, authors Jane Murray and Rick Linden speak to a wide variety of Canadian students and capture their interest by taking into account their concerns and perspectives. The research within the 6th Canadian edition includes the best work of classical and established contemporary sociologists, presented in a straightforward and easily understandable way. Each chapter examines a social issue from various theoretical perspectives: foundational theory, the most relevant contemporary theory, and a critical theory. Sociology in Our Times captures the excitement of this new era and aims to help students understand how sociological theory and research can be applied to both everyday life and the pressing social issues we face in a rapidly changing world.
