Make the familiar new. Experience Sociology empowers students to use the lenses of Culture, Structure, Power to see sociology everywhere. Bringing theory and sociological concepts together, Experience Sociology helps students move beyond an individual perspective to gain a sociological perspective.
Experience Sociology engages students with a clear framework for understanding sociology based on three familiar concepts: Culture, Structure, and Power. For every topic in the book - from the family to the economy to the environment - students learn to recognize the effects of the culture that has taught them, see the structures that constrain or empower them, and notice how power operates at every level of society.
