The Sociologically Examined Life

The Sociologically Examined Life

Pieces of the Conversation

by Michael Schwalbe

Publication Date: 01/03/2004

 
In this lively introductory text, analyses of everyday conversations and experiences are used to inspire students to think sociologically about society and about themselves as social actors. New features for this edition include dialogue boxes where the author responds to students questions in response to previous editions, as well as updated 'related readings' sections directing students to the latest research. Readers are shown how to pay attention to the social world in a sociological way, and how to see the connections between their lives, the lives of others, and the patterns of behaviour that make up society. By interweaving examples looking at race, class, and gender, the book illustrates how power and privilege affect people's experiences and life chances, and how sociological thinking is crucial for effectively pursuing social change. At the end of each chapter, a situation or conundrum is presented with three questions for classroom discussion and writing assignments.
