Sociology in Our Times: The Essentials introduces students to a brief survey of sociological theories and methods. This cutting-edge book highlights the relevance of sociology by including a diverse collection of theories, research, and "lived experiences" that accurately mirror the diversity in society itself. SOCIOLOGY IN OUR TIMES: The Essentials is noted for its lively writing style and especially strong integration of engaging "Lived Experiences" - extended examples that focus on various issues to illustrate chapter coverage. These extended examples are introduced with the vignette that opens each chapter and are then carried throughout the chapter in various boxes, features, and exercises. Sociology in Our Times is acclaimed in the field for being the first textbook to integrate race, class, and gender issues, and for its thorough presentation of sociological theory, which includes diverse theoretical viewpoints such as feminist and postmodernist theory. Kendall, Murray and Linden show students that sociology involves important questions and issues that they confront both personally and vicariously.
