  • Combines classical and contemporary theory in a single, integrated text
  • Short biographies and historical timelines of significant events provide context to theorists' ideas
  • Innovatively builds on excerpts from original theoretical writings with detailed discussion of the concepts and ideas under review
  • Includes new examples of current social processes in China, South Korea, India, Latin America, the Middle East, and other non-Western societies
  • Additional resources, available at www.wiley.com/go/dillon, include multiple choice and essay questions, PowerPoint slides with multimedia links to content illustrative of sociological processes, a list of complementary primary readings, a quotation bank, and other background materials
