Beginning with the earliest roots of sociology, including early thinkers not usually included in the sociological canon, the book examines how sociology looks at everyday life, including standard sociological areas of concern such as the family, deviance, and culture, as well as contemporary concerns such as the sociology of medicine and globalization.
