Thirty Readings in Introductory Sociology, Second Edition, introduces students to the field of sociology in an engaging, accessible manner. Designed to be used alone or with its companion, Ten Lessons in Introductory Sociology, the book is organized around four themes commonly examined inintroductory courses: Why sociology? What unites society? What divides society? and How do societies change? Rather than provide encyclopedic responses to such questions, Thirty Readings in Introductory Sociology engages students in critical thinking while presenting key concepts and methods insociology. Edited by Kenneth A. Gould and Tammy L. Lewis, the text raises sociological questions, applies a sociological lens, illustrates how data are used, and presents core topics in a way that is easy for students to grasp. Each section begins with an introduction by Gould and Lewis, followed by threereadings: one classical, one that uses qualitative data, and a third that uses quantitative data.

Editorial Reviews

"The approach of this book distills sociology down to its core elements, providing ample evidence of sociological thinking and multiple methodologies. It also includes key literature from sociology's founders as well as contemporary articles addressing significant current issues. I like thisapproach as it provides a nice overview of the sociological way of thinking and of doing research." --Angela Mertig, Middle Tennessee State University
