About the Book

Thinking About Sociology: A Critical Introduction is intended for introductory sociology courses for first-year university students. The book helps students start to think like sociologists, to question their taken-for-granted assumptions about their place in society, and to evaluate critically how they interact with other individuals and social institutions. To this end, Anderson takes a critical perspective when discussing the core concepts, skills, theories, and applications used in the study of sociology, giving students the skills they need to understand and confront the challenges they will face in life. Anderson presents examples that are diverse, topical and relevant to Canadian students, covering such areas as education and training, immigration and integration and social networking and mediated interactions.
