                                                                      Exploring the Questions of Today                                                                                     Identity & Inequality                                                                                Race, Class, & Gender                                                                                    Multiculturalism                                                                                      Globalization Sociology Nowreflects the discipline today and explores the big questions about multiculturalism and globalization that sociologists ask. Itexplains how the classic concerns of sociology—social order, social conflict, social interaction—have been reshaped by new insights about multiculturalism and globalization.  Sociology has always offered a way to make sense of the complex and sometimes contradictory forces that shape our social lives in any era. AsSociology Now explains sociology as both a body of knowledge and a "way of seeing," it shows how two such forces in particular have come to preoccupy sociologists and influence the way they look at the events and experiences of the early twenty first century: The first isglobalization--the economic, political, cultural, and social interconnections among people and institutions all over the world. The second ismulticulturalism--the recognition that race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, religion, and other statuses are sources of social inequality, but also the foundations of our identities. Michael Kimmel, a leading sociologist and gender researcher, and co-author Amy Aronson, a journalist and media scholar, address these questions head-on as they make a compelling case for the importance of sociology in the contemporary world. To learn more about the new edition, clickhereto visit the showcase site.  What is the Pearson Census Update Edition? The Census Update edition incorporates 2010 Census data into a course–simply and easily.
