Elements of Sociology: A Critical Canadian Introduction is designed as an alternative to the mainstream narrative of the history of the discipline found in other intro-level soc books. Writing in a highly personal, down-to-earth, and at times outspoken tone, the authors set out to showstudents that sociology is an exciting, dynamic field of study that can change the way they view themselves and the social world around them. First-person narratives - written by the authors themselves, their students, and experts in the field - are a key ingredient in their unconventional approach.While certainly not for everyone, the book's unique style and its critical perspective have effectively distinguished the text from all others on the market; instructors immediately notice Elements of Sociology's off-beat tone and approach when they are choosing a text from a monstrous stack ofseemingly interchangeable introductory books. The factors that have contributed to the book's success - its lively, accessible tone and personal narrative approach to the material - are retained in this new edition. A new chapter on the environment - an increasingly popular and important topic in sociological research - headlines the list ofrevisions, which also include updated data and statistics and a fresh new design and art program.
