Authoritative coverage, award-winning media, unbeatable price

Authored by four leading scholars and teachers, Introduction to Sociology provides an authoritative introduction to basic concepts, major theories, and current research in a streamlined, easy-to-navigate format. A consistent four-part chapter structure makes the reading manageable without sacrificing coverage, while InQuizitive, Norton’s award-winning adaptive learning platform, helps ensure students are mastering the content. At the end of every chapter, a discussion of unanswered questions highlights the power of the sociological imagination to help us better understand our complex society.


Unanswered Questions highlight the power of the sociological imagination.

Thought-provoking questions—and related discussions—at the end of each chapter reveal how a sociological imagination enables us to better understand issues such as racial inequality, gender inequality, crime, and more.

Consistent four-part pedagogy coupled with InQuizitive keeps students on track.

The easy-to-navigate four-part chapter structure is a winning formula: In part 1 the authors outline the basic concepts, laying a foundation for the rest of the chapter. Part 2 is devoted to sociological theory, while current research is explored in part 3. The chapter concludes with a thought-provoking discussion of unanswered questions that face sociologists today (part 4). Organized around the book’s learning objectives, InQuizitive reinforces this structure and helps students master core concepts.

Up-to-date coverage of sociological research by three active researchers.

After covering the basic concepts and sociological theory in parts 1 and 2 of each chapter, the authors turn to current research, ensuring that students are getting an up-to-date introduction to the state of the field.

Affordable formats and packages allow flexibility to assign readings.

Delivering the same text as the regular edition, the Seagull Edition, proves you can have authoritative, current coverage and fantastic digital resources at a rock-bottom price. A variety of low-cost formats and package options enable you to assign additional reading without worrying about breaking students’ bank accounts.
