Author Diana Kendalla€™s vivid and inviting writing style, emphasis on applications, and eye for the most compelling current examples highlight sociologya€™s relevance to all students. Now in its Tenth Edition, SOCIOLOGY IN OUR TIMES is acclaimed in the field for being the first textbook to integrate race, class, and gender issues, and for its thorough presentation of sociological theory, including contemporary perspectives such as feminism and postmodernism.
