About the Book

Introduction to Sociology 2e adheres to the scope and sequence of a typical, one-semester introductory sociology course. It offers comprehensive coverage of core concepts, foundational scholars, and emerging theories. The textbook presents section reviews with rich questions, discussions that help students apply their knowledge, and features that draw learners into the discipline in meaningful ways. The second edition has been updated significantly to reflect the latest research and current, relevant examples.

Changes made in Introduction to Sociology 2e are described in the preface to help instructors transition to the second edition. The first edition of Introduction to Sociology by OpenStax is available in web view here.

This is the highest-quality affordably-priced printed OpenStax textbook available. As OpenStax's premier print partner, XanEdu prints all OpenStax textbooks in hardcover full-color versions, and a paperback version with B&W interior pages. The hardcover and paperback versions are exactly the same as the free OpenStax digital textbook which is available for free digital download at the OpenStax website, but as many students prefer the convenience of a printed textbook, we work directly with OpenStax to provide affordable print textbook options for students.
