Essentials of Sociology: A Down-to-Earth Approach is heralded by students and instructors alike as the most friendly and inviting introduction to sociology available. James Henslin guides students on an intellectual voyage through through the sociological imagination, helping them better understanding both themselves and their world. With humor, personal reflection and illuminating examples, he shares with readers his passion for sociology. Six central themes run throughout the text: down-to-earth sociology, globalization, cultural diversity, critical thinking, the new technology and the influence of mass media on everyday life. Each of these themes is reflected in the central narrative, in boxed features throughout the text, and in MySocLab. Essentials of Sociology: A Down-to-Earth Approach 9th edition is the first edition of Henslin's to feature integration with MySocLab. MySocLab now features diagnostic quizzing, Social Explorer activities, The Way We Live video actitivies, links to The Social Lens blog, and over 100 primary source readings.

This text shows counter-intuitively, that the secular enterprise that everyday sociology appears to be pursuing is actually not what is really going on at sociology's deepest level. Sociology today is in fact animated by sacred impulses, driven by sacred commitments, and serves a sacred project. The book re-asserts a vision for what sociology is most important for, in contrast with its current commitments, and calls sociologists back to a more honest, fair, and healthy vision of its purpose.

"Down to Earth Sociology, Ninth Edition, continues to open new windows onto the complex social realities that shape our world as it provides a firm foundation for exploring the discipline of sociology and the dynamic principles underlying society itself. Thoroughly revised and expanded, the Ninth Edition includes a number of exceptional new readings: Deborah Tannen on the differing communication styles of men and women; George Ritzer on the "McDonaldization" of society; Arthur J. Vidich and Joseph Bensman on resistance to social change; James M. Jasper and Dorothy Nelkin on the animal rights movement; Patricia Yancey Martin and Robert A. Hummer on fraternities and rape on campus, and Arturo Madrid on changes in racial-ethnic relations." "Together with thirteen essential new articles, classic contributions from C. Wright Mills, Elliot Liebow, Arlie Hochschild, Jonathan Kozol, among many others, emphasize participant observation - which gives students a sense of "being there" by using expert firsthand reporting. Henslin's forty-seven selections highlight the most significant themes of contemporary sociology, ranging from the sociology of gender, power, politics, sports, and religion, to the contemporary crises of violent crime, poverty, homelessness, and AIDS. Down to Earth Sociology includes a unique Correlation Chart that ties every article to related chapters in the thirty-eight most widely used introductory textbooks."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Soziologische Phantasie, die erstmals 1963 erschienene deutsche Übersetzung von C. Wright Mills‘ The Sociological Imagination, darf zurecht als Meilenstein wissenschaftlich-politischer Debatten in den Vereinigten Staaten betrachtet werden und zählt auch heute noch zu einer der wichtigsten Selbstkritiken der Soziologie. Mills schlägt hier einen dritten Weg zwischen bloßem Empirismus und abgehobener Theorie ein: Er plädiert für eine kritische Sozialwissenschaft, die sich weder bürokratisch instrumentalisieren lässt noch selbstverliebt vor sich hin prozessiert, sondern gesellschaftliche Bedeutung erlangt, indem sie den Zusammenhang von persönlichen Schwierigkeiten und öffentlichen Problemen erhellt. Eben dies sei Aufgabe und Verheißung einer Soziologie, die sich viel zu häufig „einer merkwürdigen Lust an der Attitüde des Unbeteiligten“ hingebe.

Franziskus fordert gerne einmal "Gesichter von freudigen Menschen", der Papst hält Freude für ein zentrales Element im Leben. Das hat er in seinen Werken, Ansprachen und Predigten immer wieder klargemacht. In seinem Lehrschreiben "Freut euch und jubelt" formuliert er neue Gedanken dazu und verbindet sie auf originelle Weise mit dem Begriff der "Heiligkeit". Heiligkeit als etwas, zu dem jeder von uns berufen ist, zu einem erfüllten und gelingenden Leben. Franziskus spricht über unseren konkreten Alltag, über die Herausforderungen und Sorgen, aber eben auch eine Freude, die das Leben durchzieht und trägt. Die Gedanken des Papstes sind ein kostbarer Schlüssel zum Evangelium, das als Botschaft nicht nur froh, sondern auch Freude macht, und das Franziskus uns so neu aufschließt. Sein persönliches Lob der "Mittelschicht der Heiligkeit", eine päpstliche Ode an die Freude und ein inspirierendes Werk für alle - Christen und Nichtchristen.
