More About What You Need to Know by Amy D'Olivo; Sonia Brown
 
 
 
Overview
""What You Need to Know: An Introduction to Sociology" discusses grass roots issues and employs relatable examples to help readers see the immediate and important connection between their lives and the societies and cultures to which they belong.
From the first chapter, students are encouraged to tap into their ""sociological imaginations"" to understand the applications of sociology and how it compares to other disciplines. They explore theories and learn systematic approaches to research.
With this foundational understanding, students then study culture, socialization, social structures, interactions and institutions, and groups, organizations, and networks. The book also addresses deviance and social control, inequality, and social change.
"What You Need to Know: An Introduction to Sociology" moves away from an overemphasis on details to focus on the ideas that make sociology both relevant and exciting.
Jargon-free and accessible, "What You Need to Know: An Introduction to Sociology" is written for introductory courses in the discipline.
Amy D'Olivo holds a Ph.D. in the sociology of religion from Drew University and is an associate professor of sociology and department chair at Centenary College. Her research interests include curriculum development for sociology. Her work has appeared in the "Journal of Men's Studies" and the "Encyclopedia of Criminal Justice."
Sonia M. Brown holds an M.A. in sociology from DePaul University, an M.A. in social work from Loyola University, and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. at Rowan University. She is lecturer at Rutgers University. Her research interests include the examination of contemporary examples of social injustice/needs and access/success of marginalized groups in higher education.
