Starting Points is a text that is truly a reflection of its title in that it provides a solid starting point for introductory university-level students delving into the world of sociology for the first time. The text builds on concepts and theories introduced at the beginning of each chapter, moving from historical figures and founding principles to the most current research, literature, and key sociologists in the discipline today. By examining the social trends and phenomena that occur in Canada and around the world, the text provides a comprehensive examination of why studying sociology is important and its application to daily life. Professors will appreciate the differentiation and explanations made between the major sociological perspectives and theories, including functionalist, critical, post-modernist, and feminist theories. Effective and applicable examples used throughout help tie the subject matter into everyday situations students can relate to.
