Description

This iBook explains the most influential theories about society, and addresses important institutions that affect the self. The first three chapters cover conflict theory, symbolic interactionism, and structural functionalism as the three pillars of sociology, after which institutions such as family, religion, and education are addressed. Finally, five case studies about individuals (Malala Yousafzai), economic structures (garment industry, prostitution), and places (Haiti) encourage readers to apply what they have learned to current events. The iBook features videos created by Lynn University students to illustrate the material, links to important information and news events, quizzes to test understanding, and questions to help reflection.
