Description

For use as a supplemental text in the Introductory Sociology, Global Issues, and Culture & Society courses.

 

Think Twice! lets students realize for themselves that a “sociological imagination” can help them understand the burning questions of today's society, and that this kind of thinking is within their grasp. It illustrates how understanding society means engaging with its issues. The Second Edition consists of a series of debates in which multiple sides of today's hottest topics are examined–Is the environment improving? Is religion dead? Do poor people create their own poverty? Should marijuana be legalized? Is ethnic nationalism destructive? Revealing how much sociology has to contribute to our understanding of these topics, it encourages readers to Think Twice...then think again.
