Mapping the Social Landscape Description

Now with SAGE Publishing, Mapping the Social Landscape: Readings in Sociology is one of the most established and widely-used anthologies for Introductory Sociology. Susan J. Ferguson selects, edits, and introduces 58 readings representing a plurality of voices and views within sociology. The selections include classic statements from great thinkers like C. Wright Mills, Karl Marx, Howard Becker, and Max Weber, as well as the works of contemporary scholars who address current social issues. Many of the readings integrate questions of diversity, helping students see the interrelationships among race-ethnicity, social class, and gender, and understand how these relationships have shaped the experiences of all people in society.

New selections focus on

o    how Superstorm Sandy damaged social as well as physical structures

o    gender panics and bathrooms

o    extreme poverty in the United States

o    transgender challenges to our understanding of gender

o    a Muslim American punk rock subculture that is challenging Islamophobia

o    lessons from the Affordable Care Act

o    revolutionary movements for social change
