Synopsis

New Third Edition!















If sociology could teach everyone just one thing, what would it be? The Forest and the Trees is one sociologist's response to the hypothetical-the core insight with the greatest potential to change how people see the world and themselves in relation to it.















This Third Edition features:











*



Updated key references, data, resources, and examples, from global warming, Obama's election, and gay marriage to transgender/cisgender and the Occupy Movement







*



A glossary of terms







*



The short essays in Chapter 6, framed around the power of sociology, dig beneath easy and popular understandings to reveal what lies beneath







*



An additional analysis of how men's violence is made invisible even though most violence is perpetrated by men







*



Chapter 7's focus on sociology as a worldview with an analysis of the origins of white privilege
