Our Social World: Condensed Version
In this brief text, two leaders of the Teaching Sociology movement help students develop their sociological imaginations by teaching them to role-take within their global society, allowing them to experience what it is like to be someone as seemingly remote as a child sex slave in India. An innovative, integrated framework provides core sociological concepts, while features such as Contributing to Our Social World enable students to “do” public sociology.
