Introduction to Sociology

This authoritative overview of core sociological concepts comprises 22 half-hour lessons. Interviews with leading experts are interspersed with historic and contemporary footage, while real-world "Slice of Life" scenarios demonstrate how sociology's concepts are lived out in daily life. The topic-specific lessons develop sequentially from defining sociology, to describing its methods and main concerns, to particular areas of study such as social stratification, sex roles, politics, the economy, religion, urbanization, and much more. Culminating lessons examine social movements and social change.
