This fully updated Sixth Edition of Religion in Sociological Perspective introduces students to the basic theories and methods in the field, and shows them how to apply these analytic tools to new groups they encounter. Authors Keith A Roberts and David Yamane explore three interdependent subsystems of religion--meaning, structure, and belonging--and their connections to the larger social structure. While they cover the major theoretical paradigms of the field and employ various middle-range theories to explore specific processes, they use the open systems model as a single unifying framework to integrate the theories and enhance student understanding.

Keith Roberts, Professor of Sociology at Hanover College, has not only won teaching awards, but has been honored by several sociological associations for "Distinguished Contributions to Teaching"--including the ASA's 2010 Award He has published on teaching and conducted workshops around the country. He is a member of the Departmental Resources Group of the ASA, which among other activities involves consulting work with departments of sociology on curriculum and on teaching issues. He is the co-author of Religion in Sociological Perspective, Fifth Edition (SAGE, �2012), Our Social World (SAGE, �2011) and Our Social World Condensed (SAGE, �2010), and a monograph on Writing in the Undergraduate Sociology Curriculum. He is active in the ASA Section on Teaching and Learning, and for the past 21 years has organized and lead workshops for high school sociology teachers. Keith has taught a rather wide range of sociology courses at a two-year campus, at a Research 1 University, and more recently at a very competitive small liberal arts college.

David Yamane is associate professor and chair of the Department of Sociology at Wake Forest University where he has taught since January 2005. His teaching and research focus on post-WWII American religion, particularly Roman Catholicism. His most recent books on the subject are Real Stories of Christian Initiation and The Catholic Church in State Politics. From 2006-2010 David edited the journal Sociology of Religion: A Quarterly Review which is published by the Association for the Sociology of Religion. He has taught at a liberal arts college, two Research 1 universities, and now at one of the premier collegiate universities (with small classes at the undergraduate level), and has won teaching awards at the University of Wisconsin and Wake Forest University.
