Sociology: Concepts and Characteristics
Landis' applied approach combines readings, commentary, and core concepts. Adopters are satisfied with the lighter, core format of the text. The readings are diverse and deal with contemporary issues, thus increasing relevancy to students. The text is a smooth read for the 2-year college student, not too condescending, and not too complicated.
