Social Science : An Introduction to the Study of Society, Paperback / softback Book

Social Science : An Introduction to the Study of Society Paperback / softback


Now in its seventeenth edition, Social Science: An Introduction to the Study of Society approaches its study from a common-sense perspective, rather than a formalistic perspective more common in social science.

Readers will see how seemingly diverse disciplines intermingle and connect to one another - anthropology and economics, for example.

The goal of the book is to teach students critical thinking and problem-solving skills that will allow them to approach social issues in an objective and informed way.

New to this edition are significant updates on: The election of Donald Trump and the emergence of related populist movementsTrade policy and health careIssues involving migration and immigrationEmerging developments in artificial intelligenceComparisons between cultural and biological evolutionExamples, data, recommended readings, and internet questions
