Contemporary social theory is my class. Yeah, you almost fall asleep just thinking about it, right? Well since you have to read a textbook no matter what, this one might as well be it. Each chapter is summarized in a clear amd concise way. There are also study suggestions such as sample questions and exercises. I can't say that I have done, or will do, any of those, but a more disciplined student might.....and I'm sure they would be very helpful!

It was very similar to the 3rd edition, so it saved money. I looked on with classmates with 3rd edition, but it complimented with professors lectures using the 3rd.
