SAGE Readings for Introductory Sociology is a concise, affordable anthology that contains 22 popular sociology statements designed to introduce readers to the sociological perspective. Kimberly McGann puts together readings that cover core topics in sociology, including culture, socialization, interaction, deviance, gender, class, and race. An alternate, topical table of contents suggests ways to match readings to other subfields in sociology (like family, education, work, and religion), and identifies readings that reflect four theoretical traditions: functionalism, symbolic interactionism, conflict theory, and feminism.

Excerpt from An Introductory Sociology Since group life depends on, or really consists in, interaction and contact, it is necessary to study the forms of such action or social processes. These are co-operation and opposition, the latter being divided into competition and con ict. From these develop other processes, such as the division Of labor, the formation of social classes, the settlement of con ict by accommodation, and the merging of persons and groups of divergent cultures into a com mon group with a common culture, the change which we call assimilation. The same interaction looked at from the angle Of the individual determines what is called personality. Personality is that combina tion of ideas, attitudes, and habits which the individual develops as he plays his part within the boundaries Of various groups: fam ily, neighborhood, fraternity, trade union, merchants' association, political party, church body, and so on.
