Sociological Research Exercises for the Global Age

First Edition
  • JoAnn Chirico - The Pennsylvania State University, University College


November 2009 | 256 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Sociological Research Exercises for the Global Age is a manual that links the most fundamental theories and concepts of sociology with students' everyday experience of the world. Stressing aspects of globalization in nearly every research exercise, the manual leads students through a balanced array of qualitative and quantitative methods as they test and apply theories and concepts. This supplement follows the format of the standard sociology text and has been geared in particular to pick up on content from the Ballantine and Roberts text. Students can complete the exercises independently or they can be done in class. Each exercise is 'ready to go', meaning that it requires no extra work from the instructor. Where appropriate, there are short essays to introduce the theory behind the exercise.
 
I. Globalization, Sociology and the Problem of Order
 
II. The Sociological Prism: The Action System
 
III. Stratification
 
IV. Institutions
 
V. Change

While there a number of good exercises in the book, it would be hard to justify to students the cost. I could see using this in a research methods course, or if the course was more interactive and had less students.
