Overview

Now in its seventeenth edition, Social Science: An Introduction to the Study of Society approaches its study from a common-sense perspective, rather than a formalistic perspective more common in social science. Readers will see how seemingly diverse disciplines intermingle and connect to one another – anthropology and economics, for example. The goal of the book is to teach students critical thinking and problem-solving skills that will allow them to approach social issues in an objective and informed way.

New to this edition are significant updates on:

  • The election of Donald Trump and the emergence of related populist movements
  • Trade policy and health care
  • Issues involving migration and immigration
  • Emerging developments in artificial intelligence
  • Comparisons between cultural and biological evolution
  • Examples, data, recommended readings, and internet questions
