A perfect alternative to the traditional introductory sociology text, TEN QUESTIONS: A SOCIOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE, Eighth Edition, employs a unique approach to introducing and examining sociological principles. The text poses and answers questions that pique student interest, such as: What does it mean to be human? Are human beings free? Why is there misery in the world? The book examines the philosophies of classical sociologists such as Marx, Weber, Durkheim, Mead, and Berger, and looks at how the field of sociology has approached these questions over the past 150 years. Thoroughly updated, the Eighth Edition includes such new real-world examples as the political revolution in Egypt and the Tea Party movement as illustrations of social conflict; and intriguing new discussions of how individuals can affect society, inequality and social stratification, and many other topics.
