The Sense of Sociability

How People Overcome the Forces Pulling Them Apart

Lorne Tepperman

  • RELEVANT: A modern, surprising journey into the different levels of human social life, including forays into families, schools, church, gender, and diversity.
  • CONCISE and NON-TECHNICAL: Grounded in forty years of research, The Sense of Sociability draws on insights from sociology, political science, and history. Quirky and unique, this often humorous and occasionally dark look at the world through the "sociological imagination" compels us to think more deeply about the world in which we are embedded.
  • ACCESSIBLE: A lifetime of teaching, writing, and research are behind this unique, enjoyable, and highly readable book.
