ExploringÊthe questions of today Ê Sociology NowÊ reflects the discipline today andÊexplores the big questions about multiculturalism and globalization that sociologists ask. Ê It explainsÊhow the classic concerns of sociologyÑsocial order, social conflict, social interactionÑhave been reshaped byÊnew insights about multiculturalism and globalization.Ê Ê Sociology has always offered a way to make sense of the complex and sometimes contradictory forces that shape our social lives in any era. As Sociology NowÊ explains sociology as both aÊbody of knowledge and a “way of seeing,” it shows how the forces of globalization and multiculturalism have come to preoccupy sociologists and influence the way they look at the events and experiences of the early twenty first century. Michael Kimmel, a leading sociologist and gender researcher, and co-author Amy Aronson, a journalist and media scholar, address questions regarding these forces head-on as they make a compelling case for the importance of sociology in the contemporary world. Ê The Census UpdateÊprogram incorporates 2010 Census data into a courseÐsimply and easily. The components of the Census Update Program include an updated census edition with all charts and graphsÐto reflect the results of the 2010 Census.
