Description

Provides a strong multidisciplinary approach

 

Social Science, 15/e, approaches social science from a common-sense perspective, rather than from a conventional social science angle. Readers will see how seemingly diverse disciplines intermingle — anthropology and economics, for example. In the end, students will be able to approach social issues with unbiased problem-solving skills.
