An Introduction to Comparative Sociology
Not your typical sociology primer, this straightforward yet challenging text begins with a discussion of foundational theories, central concepts and areas of study.
Drawing on anthropology, archaeology and history to illustrate key points, the book offers a thorough examination of the field, covering such often neglected topics as the mass production of deviance (Stalin's lethal purges, for example) and the sociology of war.
This multifaceted approach provides a broad overview of the discipline through a clear-eyed investigation of human society at its best and worst.
