Seeing Ourselves is the only reader that systematically weaves together three types of articles-classic, contemporary, and cross-cultural. Classic articles will provide you with sociological statements of recognized importance and lasting significance. Contemporary articles focus on current sociological issues, controversies, and applications. They will show you the real world of sociologists at work, and demonstrate the importance of on-going research. Cross-cultural articles cast sociological insights about the world's striking cultural diversity. Together, these articles offer the most comprehensive coverage of any sociology reader.
