New to this Edition:

  • Five Paired Concepts (Inequality and Privilege; Power and Resistance; Global and Local, Structure and Contingency; Solidarity and Conflict) help students view their worlds through a sociological lens.
  • Engaging and timely examples capture student's attention. Examples include discussions of moral panics and pandemic hoarding (Chapter 5); Black Lives Matter (Chapter 7) and the destruction of the Amazon (Chapter 12).
  • Case studies at the end of each chapter apply the five paired concepts as analytical tools to understand a cultural, political, or social phenomenon relevant to the chapter's key themes.
  • Practical Activities at the end of each chapter encourage students to use their sociological imagination, develop their media and data literacy skills, and discuss compelling questions and issues.
  • All new print and digital copies of Living Sociologically, Concise Edition include access to the Oxford Insight Study Guide, a data-driven, personalized digital learning tool that reinforces key concepts from the text and encourages effective reading and study habits.
  • Additional digital course materials-including “In the News” weekly quizzes-- provide a wealth of assessments, assignments, and activities that further support your student's success for your online, hybrid, and in-person courses.
