The second part covers the social environment, including urbanization, work, politics, religion and the mass media. The final two parts examine global society and the position of the individual, with an emphasis throughout the book on understanding and treating all concepts with clarity and precision.
Sociology employs the "Breakthrough method" to help you advance quickly at any subject, whether you?re studing for an exam or just for your own interst. The Breakthrough Method is designed to overcome typical problems you?ll face as learn new concepts and skills.
