Sinclair Community College Bundle free pdf This bundle costs less than the price of the Ballantine/Roberts text alone - plus, your students get "The Engaged Sociologist, 2/e". The second edition of "Our Social World: Introduction to Sociology" is truly a coherent essay that inspires students to develop their sociological imaginations, to see the world and personal events from a new perspective, and to confront sociological issues on a day-to-day basis. This innovative and engaging text introduces the discipline of sociology to the contemporary student and provides an integrated, comprehensible framework from which to view the world. In each chapter, authors Jeanne H. Ballantine and Keith A. Roberts provide an organizing theme that is not exclusively tied to one theoretical paradigm to help students see relationships between topics. "Our Social World, Second Edition" presents the perspective of students living in the larger global world. This second edition of "The Engaged Sociologist: Connecting the Classroom to the Community" brings the public sociology movement into the classroom by showing students how to use the tools of sociology to become effective participants in our democratic society. Through exercises and projects, authors Kathleen Korgen and Jonathan M. White encourage students to apply these tools to get hands-on training in sociology and to develop their sociological imaginations as they work for a more just and civil society.
