Summary
  • "The second edition of this award-winning book has been substantially revised throughout, including making more direct connections between the discussion of Generation Z and Mills' concept of the sociological imagination. As well, the final section on popular culture has been revised with a new chapter on the history of popular music (from early rock'n roll to contemporary pop and R&B). This last part of the book offers an extended example for students to see sophisticated sociological analysis at work. New end-of-chapter review and discussion questions, and an instructor manual makes this book much easier to use, even for the most time-challenged."--
