This concise, user-friendly book by award-winning sociology professor Stephen F. Steele of Anne Arundel Community College and Jammie Price of the University of North Carolina Wilmington addresses a common question many introductory sociology students: What can I do with sociology? The book introduces students to sociology as an active and relevant way to understand human social interaction by offering a clear, direct linkage between sociology and its practical use. It focuses on the core concepts in sociology (terms and topics), contemporary and practical skills used by sociologists to investigate these concepts (tools), and then provides concrete exercises for learning and applying these skills (tasks). The book also includes brief sections on using sociology to make a difference in the community and on developing a career in sociology.
