A perfect alternative to the traditional introductory sociology text, the seventh edition of TEN QUESTIONS: A SOCIOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE employs a unique approach to introducing and examining sociological principles by posing and answering questions that pique student interest such as: What does it mean to be human? Are human beings free? Why is there misery in the world? The book examines the philosophies of the classical sociologists such as Marx, Weber, Durkheim, Mead, and Berger and looks at how the field of sociology has approached these questions over the past 150 years. The seventh edition has been thoroughly updated and reorganized for improved clarity and now includes coverage of the benefits and drawbacks of globalization while also touching on capitalism, world economy, technology, nations, societies, inequality, and democracy.

Written by Marisol Clark-Ibanez and Richelle Swan of California State University San Marcos, Spicing Up Sociology is designed to address the growing interest in using film in the classroom. The authors start the book with the rationale for using film in the classroom, methods for incorporating film into the classroom, and learning outcomes. They choose a feature film for every chapter in Brym, and some of the films in Brym’s feature "Sociology at the Movies" are included. The authors give a synopsis of the film and a description of what concept in that chapter it gets across. Accompanying each feature film is an activity for students to complete.
