Book Description

Seeing all sides of sociology issues: classic, contemporary, and cross-cultural.

Seeing Ourselves is the only reader that systematically weaves together three types of articles–classic, contemporary, and cross-cultural–to showcase the many different perspectives sociology offers across a diverse variety of topics. Classic articles provide students with sociological statements of recognized importance and lasting significance. Contemporary readings focus on current sociological issues, controversies, and applications. And, cross-cultural selections offer sociological insights about the striking cultural diversity of Canada and the larger world. Together, these readings summarize significant sociological issues in a way that is both informative and easy to understand for introductory students.
