Sociology in Practice: Our Prescription for Living provides students with a sociological framework within which to identify and examine how their lives are impacted by cultural and institutional forces. Readers develop the ability to navigate their lives more effectively by better understanding the most prevailing issues of our time. Students are presented with an historical analysis that illustrates how the emergence of sociology--over 175 years ago--is more relevant today than ever before as it helps us identify the root causes of the social and economic crises we face in the 21st century. Students become familiar with the foundations of contemporary sociology and reflect on education and its influence on everything from personal health to America's global future. They consider topics such as the social and economic challenges of the Millennial generation, the social responsibility of thinking sociologically in the 21st century, and the social and emotional challenges facing first-year college students. Sociology in Practice is designed to inspire students to further develop their sociological understanding and gain insight into how the demands and pressures of our social institutions impact the quality of our lives. It is well-suited for introductory courses in sociology.
