Designed as a basic text for an introductory, interdisciplinary social science course, POWER AND SOCIETY introduces students to key concepts in anthropology, sociology, economics, psychology, political science, and history. Using the theme of power, the text first introduces each of the social sciences and demonstrates how the various disciplines differ in their focus and methods, while maintaining the central integrative theme. The text then uses an interdisciplinary viewpoint to illustrate the nature and uses of power in society. POWER AND SOCIETY ignites students' interest in the social sciences by exploring some of the central challenges and contemporary controversies facing American society; for example, ideological conflict, racism and sexism, poverty and powerlessness, crime and violence, community problems, and international relations.
