Intended for courses in introductory sociology, Sociological Snapshots helps students "see" abstract (but foundational) sociological concepts. In a simple and entertaining style, the third edition continues to link everyday experience to sociological concepts and concerns. In doing so, it develops students ability to see and articulate abstractions and to analyze data about social reality.
