    Book details

Join the conversation with one of sociology’s best-known thinkers.

Essentials of Sociology
, Second Edition adapted from George Ritzer’s Introduction to Sociology, Third Edition, provides the same rock-solid foundation in a shorter and more streamlined format. Like the original Ritzer text, Essentials of Sociology illuminates traditional sociological concepts and theories, and focuses on some of the most compelling contemporary social phenomena: globalization, consumer culture, the Internet, and the “McDonaldization” of society. As technology flattens the globe, students are challenged to apply a sociological perspective to their world, and to see how “public” sociologists are engaging with the critical issues of today.

  • By Lalitha on April 17, 2017

    It's not really that helpful, and honestly depending on the lecture, you could go without it.

  • By Grace D. on January 7, 2018

    I was disappointed with the condition of this book, it is very water logged with yellow stains all over the bottom. It is just a rental but I was expecting better.
