Picked up the first edition of this text for a college sociology class way back in the day. Now, as a prof, it is one of a handful of books from that era that I continue to find myself discussing with students. Covers a broad range of topics with compelling profiles that lend depth to subjects that might otherwise be dismissed as mundane by the average freshman.
