This workbook is a "hands-on" introduction to the craft of social research. It is intended for use in introductory sociology courses and may be combined with most of the standard textbooks in the field. Students are involved in the process of social research throughout the book; in fact, the student is the principal researcher. Students take an active role and test their own ideas about topics such as divorce, abortion, crime, inequality, prejudice, and television violence, among other current issues. Order the SPSS Student Version of this book so your students can practice SPSS from the convenience of their laptops rather than in a computer lab. Data sets available online! These data sets, available at left under 'Sample Materials and Chapters,' provide historical depth and analyze trends over time by comparing 2006 results and patterns with data from the 1972 General Social Survey.

Joseph F. Healey is Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Christopher Newport University in Virginia. He received his PhD in sociology and anthropology from the University of Virginia.
