The Sociological Outlook provides a general and comprehensive overview of sociology--covering major theoretical schools, methods of research, substantive areas, and an analysis of social institutions--with a focus on institutions in the United States. American social institutions are presented in terms of their development, relationship to other institutions, and their response to global context. Throughout the book, Luhman closely examines contemporary issues in gender, race and ethnicity, and inequality.
Reid Luhman is professor emeritus of sociology at Eastern Kentucky University.
