Rethinking Society In The 21st Century Fourth Edition from the Author: Kate Bezanson. Rethinking Society in the 21st Century is a critical collection of readings that provides students with a foundational knowledge base in sociology. The fourth edition has been thoroughly updated to include significant Canadian content, with a greater focus on indigeneity, gender, and sexuality and a new section dedicated to social movements, social change, and emerging fields. This anthology introduces students to the fundamental elements of sociology with a balance of classical theory—Marx, Weber, Durkheim, Mills—and more contemporary approaches found in the works of Michel Foucault and Dorothy Smith. Building on this theoretical grounding, the text outlines core concepts in sociology as well as major social institutions such as families, the economy and labour, education, health care, and media. Covering a wide breadth of topics, including chapters on animals, the environment, crime, trans issues, class, ethnicity, and race, this new edition explores critical debates in Canadian society with an emphasis on intersectional approaches to social inequalities. This volume is rich with pedagogical features that promote critical understanding, including detailed introductions that speak to the contextual history of the source material and discussion questions for each section. Uniquely designed for introductory courses, Rethinking Society in the 21st Century is the ideal reader for Canadian students of sociology.

from the Author: Elizabet Kolbert. Під час роботи над книгою авторка побувала майже на всіх континентах, відвідала наукові бази в тропіках Амазонії і на островах Великого бар’єрного рифу, спілкувалася з сотнями людей. Колберт шукає відповідь на питання, що станеться, якщо темпи вимирання прискоряться. Ця книга — не наукова праця. Вона — швидше велетенська стаття для природничого журналу зі світовим ім’ям, яку ми маємо можливість читати українською. Елізабет Колберт у своїй книзі нікого не повчає. Зрештою, навіть не попереджає про наслідки нашого бездумного користування планетою. Вона — майстерна і досвідчена репортерка, яка простими словами розповідає про складні речі, від котрих залежить майбутнє нашої планети і, зрештою, людської цивілізації загалом.

from the Author: Ювал Ной Харарі. Дослідження, що стало світовим бестселером № 1 за версією The New York Times та лідером продажів на Amazon.com, ламає усталені уявлення про земну історію від появи людини й народження мови до сьогодення і примушує задуматися: шлях розвитку наших предків міг бути зовсім іншим. Долучіться до історичної розвідки, і вас приголомшать неочікувані й сміливі припущення. У книжці ви не знайдете нудної хронології та сухих дат, але разом з автором розмірковуватимете про численні «чому?». ▶ Чому Людина Розумна отримала шанс на майбутнє та що винищило її найближчих древніх родичів? ▶ Чому перехід від збиральництва до сільського господарства став пасткою для людини й погіршив її життя? ▶ Чому могутні імперії інків та монголів зазнали краху та були переможені нечисленними групами європейців? ▶ Що таке «теорія пліток» і як розмови про те, чого насправді не існує, підняли людину на вищий щабель цивілізації? ▶ Що спільного між релігією та ідеологією? Чим відрізняються християнство та буддизм? ▶ Як гроші та кредити стали однією з основних рушійних сил цивілізації? ▶ Чому зруйновані імперії досі керують людством?

Rethinking World Government from the Author: James A. Yunker. This groundbreaking volume issues a powerful challenge to conventional thinking that a world government would be undesirable as it might develop into global tyranny.

Visionary, yet pragmatic, this book will be of special interest to those who wonder whether effective global governance might require an effective global government.
