Designed to introduce students to key concepts and methods in sociology and to engage them in critical thinking, Ten Lessons in Introductory Sociology provides a brief and valuable overview to four major questions that guide the discipline:* Why sociology?* What unites society?* What divides society?* How do societies change?The ten lessons outlined in the text are considered the most important by the majority of those teaching in the field. Deftly balancing breadth and depth, the book makes the study of sociology accessible, relevant, and meaningful. Contextualizing the most important issues, Ten Lessons helps students discover "the sociological imagination" and what it means to be part of an engaged public discourse.

Kenneth A. Gould is professor and chair of the Department of Sociology at Brooklyn College and professor of sociology at the Cuny graduate center.
