For courses in Introductory Sociology


Help students view society from a conflict perspective

In Conflict and Order: Understanding Society examines society from a conflict perspective, prompting students to ponder one of the central questions of sociology: Who benefits from the existing customs and social order, and who does not? Via their conflict-centered approach, authors D. Stanley Eitzen, Maxine Baca Zinn, and Kelly Eitzen Smith offer a realistic appraisal of society and lead students to think critically about existing social arrangements with an eye toward restructuring society along more humane lines. The fourteenth edition offers expanded coverage of contemporary topics, including the changing economy and conflicts over immigration, to reinforce how the issues in today’s headlines can be understood through the lens of sociology.
