Sociology is the study of human social life. Human social life is complex and encompasses many facets of the human experience. Because of its complexity, the discipline of sociology has been subdivided over time into specialty areas. The first section of this book covers the foundations of sociology, including an introduction to the discipline, relevant study methodologies, and dominant theoretical perspectives. The remaining chapters focus on the different areas of study in sociology.
