What's New

  • The most significant change to this edition is the dramatically streamlined organization--featuring a reduction in the number of chapters from 17 to 14--which is better suited to what can typically be covered in a one-term course.
  • A new end-of-chapter review section plus unique "You Be the [profession]" boxes, such as "You Be the Police Officer" or "You Be the Parole Officer," provide students with opportunities to test and apply their understanding of chapter concepts.
  • A new emphasis on social media throughout the text--via marginal insets as well as "Social Media Tips" enhancements to the Careers boxes--keeps students on the cutting edge.
