5.0 out of 5 stars The Definitive Sociology Text, November 6, 2012
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sociology: A Text With Adapted Readings. (Hardcover)
The textbook for Sociology 101 utilized by the lecturer at KDU during the winter of 1984, which represents the most comprehensive take on the subject ever encompassed within a text.

Takes, among other topics, a close look at the concept of culture, while delving into the process of assimilation and acculturation, the socialization process and the social self - with emphasis on the concept of consensual validation and the Social Inference Model, the concept of pluralism and deviancy, with discussions on stigmatization, ostracization and social pressures towards conformity, the sociology of gender roles and the empowerment of gender roles, the concept of social stratification in society, the social stages of development incorporated in Maslow's hierarchy of needs, and the moral stages of development as represented by Kohlberg's model.

A very comprehensive text presented in a very accessible way that constitutes an engaging read.
