Our Social World presents the perspective of students living in the larger global world.Features of this brief edition:- Offers a strong global focus: A global perspective is integrated into each chapter to encourage students to think of global society as a logical extension of their own micro world.- Deep Learning Approach: Encourages Students to think critically about the social World- Presents 'œThe Social World Model' in each chapter: This organizing framework helps students understand the interrelatedness of core concepts.
