Social Science: An Introduction to the Study of Society, 15th Edition

By Elgin F. Hunt, David C. Colander

Published by Pearson

Published Date: Oct 24, 2013

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.

 

MySearchLab is a part of the Hunt program. Research and writing tools, including access to academic journals, help students explore Social Science in even greater depth. To provide students with flexibility, students can download the eText to a tablet using the free Pearson eText app.

 

This title is available in a variety of formats and prices – digital and print. Pearson offers its titles on the devices students love through Pearson’s MyLab products, CourseSmart, Amazon, and more. To learn more about our programs, pricing options and customization.
