The author speaks directly to the reader in a friendly and encouraging way. The concepts are explained well in a straightforward way, with good examples. -Connie Veldink, Everett Community College Not only is the writing style engaging, but the design contributes to engaging the reader. -Karen Done, Coahoma Community College I like how the chapters in the book are broken down into separate units and then grouped together. I think this allows the students to see what they can expect to learn throughout the course and the book, as well as making it easier to deliver the material to them. - Dr. William Kimberlin, Lorain County Community College

About James Henslin

James M. Henslin, who was born in Minnesota, graduated from high school and junior college in California and from college in Indiana. Awarded scholarships, he earned his Master's and doctorate degrees in sociology at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri. After this, he was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship from the National Institute of Mental Health, and spent a year studying how people adjust to the suicide of a family member. His primary interests in sociology are the sociology of everyday life, deviance, and international relations. Among his numerous books are Sociology: A-Down-to-Earth Approach (Allyn & Bacon, available in three versions); Social Problems (Allyn & Bacon); and Down-to-Earth Sociology: Introductory Readings (Free Press). He has also published widely in sociology journals, including Social Problems and American Journal of Sociology. While a graduate student, Jim Henslin taught at the University of Missouri at St. Louis. After completing his doctorate, he joined the faculty at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville, where he is Professor Emeritus of Sociology. His two favorite activities are writing and traveling. He especially enjoys visiting and living in other cultures, for this brings him face to face with behaviors and ways of thinking that he cannot take for granted, experiences that make sociological principles come alive.
