"Scholarly and engaging."
"A well-organized, research-supported, inspiring and compelling up-to-date read."
"Both a sound representation of the best traditions of sociology and an innovator in presenting new ways to think about and teach the material."
"I find this text creative, interesting, and useful. I recommend the text for anyone in search of a cutting edge application to recent trends in society."
"Let me congratulate Brym and Lie for their eloquent work! No sociologist can fail to be impressed by the clarity of the ideas expressed, the synthesis of relevant material, and the poignancy of the examples used."

John Lie was born in South Korea, grew up in Japan and Hawaii, and attended Harvard University. Currently Professor of Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley, he has taught at the University of Hawaii at Manoa, Harvard University, and University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the United States, as well as at universities in Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and New Zealand.
