Featuring in-depth analyses of diversity within groups, as well as the multiple interactions between them, Joseph Healey addresses the experiences of women, and many other minority groups, throughout the text. "Narrative Portraits" are integrated into each chapter and provide students with first person accounts and observations from a wide variety of people. At the end of each chapter, "Current Debates" present important issues through the ideas and writings of prominent scholars. In addition, Photo Essays are included at the end of many chapters, visually reinforcing key concepts in a dramatic and memorable fashion.

How can you take a book about something as controversial and emotionally inciting as race and ethnicity and sociology in general, and turn that empassioned subject into a bedtime story? Give it to the authors of this book. I'll tell you what else really takes me off about this book is that a classmate found the fifth edition of this very same book, and other than the pictures it's virtually identical word for word - and there was an edition released between the two! It's no wonder that the United States is falling behind in education when they get in bed with book publishing companies the charge ridiculous amounts for books and then every year change the cover and add three pages or take 3 Pages out, so that students are und

Used for my human relations course, was a great book. I was surprised how much I really enjoyed it. It did a great job of covering things in full honestly. I learned going to a South Dakota University many have no idea about the American Indian Movement and all of the history with it in their own state. This book talked about AIM, was a big eye opener to many of my classmates about the history in the 1970's in their of state.

Worse condition ever. The binding is all taped up like someone ripped it off and even then it feels like it’s about to fall apart

Great book, great to go back an reference, Another book that I wish would have kept after the semester's end!
This is an introductory level sociology textbook. There are numerous negative reviews for previous editions of this book based on the concepts, but I would like to focus on the book itself rather than the ideas. Leaving the subject matter aside I have noticed a few issues with this textbook that I have issues with. The main text itself is somewhat dry as most textbooks tend to be but there are some more interesting perspective articles that were not written by the author. There are several small things that I think could be done better but I would like to focus on two issues that I think are particularly bad.

It seems that the author of this textbook takes a biased view on some of the theories that are discussed. Unlike hard sciences there is not a great deal of acceptance among sociologists about several of the theories that are covered in this book. For some of these theories the author clearly identifies contention among sociologists, but for other topics some things are presented strictly as facts without mentioning any alternative. As a lot of students will just be taking one required sociology class I think that this does everyone a disservice as they will be leaving their classes thinking that things are facts when they are not. These are even presented as factual answers on some quiz questions.

The other issue that I have is with the quiz questions. I think that for a concept oriented class such as one that would require this book the quizzes are very much trivia oriented rather than idea oriented. For example knowing the name of a researcher that conducted one social experiment should not be what students are trying to focus on, but that is what the quiz question was. Not the experiment itself, the result of the experiment or what could be learned from that experiment but the name of the sociologist. Useful for Jeopardy perhaps but not for learning concepts.
