Sociological Wonderment

The Puzzles of Social Life

Paul Higgins

Accessible and engaging, Sociological Wonderment brings sociology into the personal lives of students. In the tradition of C. Wright Mills, the author shows how personal concerns should be considered within public contexts. The book's unique thematic approach, topicality, and the way it challenges students' assumptions about social life make it an invaluable supplement.

Sociological Wonderment is a thought-provoking search, an adventure, and an attempt to find one's way through the great maze of our social world. Students will find it a challenging but meaningful quest. A brief Instructor's Resource Guide is available.
