Sociology: Windows on Society

An Anthology

Seventh Edition

Robert H. Lauer and Jeanette C. Lauer

The seventh edition of Lauer and Lauer's best-selling anthology Sociology: Windows On Society has been significantly updated with fifteen new selections. The book continues to draw on both contemporary sources and the classical literature of sociology to explore the nature of social life, with an emphasis on issues of gender, race/ethnicity, and inequality.

The editors have chosen articles that challenge preconceived notions and conventional wisdom while also demonstrating the distinctive power of the sociological viewpoint. The units are divided into parts to show how the selections fit into the topics covered in the introductory course. Major concepts are highlighted and explained in the introductions to the units, parts, and in each selection. Review questions and application projects encourage students to get involved in the learning process and help them better understand social research and methods.
