This book abridges cases to the point where there are little to no facts, so.Bought this book for my Constitutional Law class.

I had the Chemerinsky book for the first section of my con law class and it was far superior. My prof assigned one case in the supplement, the obamacare one, that I wish I'd just googled and read and spent the money that I did on this on a burger or somethin.

Constitutional Law book.

Every part of the book has been extensively revised-even the sections on the origins of substantive due process and the Lochner era.

The Notes and Questions, which have long been a hallmark of the book, continue to present a wide range of perspectives for students to consider, rather than reflecting a single point of view that users of the book must either adopt or teach against. Fallon Jr is Professor of Law at the Harvard Law School. He earned his BA from Yale University, matriculated as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University and then took his legal education at the Yale Law School

Richard H. He earned his BA from Yale University, matriculated as a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford University and then took his legal education at the Yale Law School. Widely known for his expertise in constitutional law and the federal courts, Fallon has been a valuable advisor to many organizations and litigants facing constitutional issues. Professor Fallon is also an accomplished educator.

Instructors will especially like the illuminating and provocative extracts from the literature that accompany important new cases.

This mainstream text gives a balanced and up-to-date presentation of all major theories and introductory sociology topics. The new edition features increased coverage of global issues, cultural diversity, the environment, critical thinking, applications, technology, current research, and mass media issues.


Exact book the college bookstore was selling for almost twice as much. This is a much better deal.
As a student taking an intro to sociology class, I have to disagree with the other reviewer who says the book is too dense. Sociology is (like many college subjects) a fairly broad field with some inherently complex concepts. But there's no need to dumb down the material to hide that from students, even in an intro course.

This is a 24 chapter textbook that covers everything from the origins/function of sociology to research methods to issues of ethics, culture, social inequality, social institutions, and social change. The book is thus broken down into 5 logically organized parts that walk the reader through the main areas of sociological thought and study.

I don't think the book is intended to be taught cover-to-cover in a single semester by an intro course. It's certainly possible (and I don't think the pace is too unreasonable at the college level), but like most texts, they're written in a sufficiently modular way with the understanding that different instructors will want to focus on different chapters, and many will skip at least a chapter or two (or only assign a small portion of those chapters as required reading).

Personally, I find intellectually challenging courses much more enjoyable than courses that are less intellectually rigorous. But even if you take the opinion that an intro course needs to balance enjoyment with the conveyance of knowledge in order to make the learning fun and encourage students to study the subject further, there's no reason why you couldn't simply break the text into 2 courses. This is commonly done for calculus courses (e.g. multi- versus single variable), and could be easily done with Macionis' book to teach at a slower pace or go more in depth into each topic.

Unless you write your own text, I don't think an instructor can expect textbooks to be written to their exact curriculum. A textbook author needs to consider that their text is going to be used by many different courses taught by different instructors with different teaching styles. The author can recommend a particular course structure, but ultimately the individual instructors are going to use their own lesson plans. So it's safer (and more economical for both the publisher and students) to provide a comprehensive textbook that covers more material than needed by a single course. It's much easier for an instructor to tell students to skip particular sections than for the instructor to add in missing chapters or sections.

And at around 650 pages, it's about average length for a solid textbook. Maybe it's too detailed or technical for a casual introduction to sociology meant for lay audiences, but a textbook for a course meant to lay the foundation for a sociology education needs to be this in-depth. And really, given how big the type is, the casual tone, and the abundance of images and visuals, no student reading at a college level should be struggling with the content, especially with an instructor explaining the more difficult/important concepts in lecture. The 12th edition also helps students relate better to topics by providing examples from popular culture and current events. So I really can't understand how someone can claim the book is too dense or difficult to read.

Finally, I just want to state that college textbook authors should cater to students with a genuine interest in learning instead of catering to the lowest common denominator to try to bait those with no passion for knowledge. I'm not a sociology major, but I did enroll in the class due to a genuine interest in the subject, and if anything the text has further fueled my interest rather than diminish it. If other students who are only taking sociology to fulfill a gen-ed. requirement are bored by the facts and theories presented in the book, then they should have signed up for a different course. My education shouldn't be dumbed down or diluted in a vain attempt to maintain their interest.
The book is great! I didn't realize that it was not in hardback or paperback format, though. It has holes to enable you to place it into a binder. This is okay for the current class that I'm in because it allows me to take only the chapter that we're working on for the current week, but I'm always concerned that I might pull too hard and tear the hole and then I won't be able to carry that page in my binder. It just keeps me on my toes and extra cautious.
Shipping came on time so it was good to have it right at the beginning of the quarter.

For others wishing to purchase this, this package includes an A la carte version of the book (unbound), an E-Book, and the access code for the website that corresponds with the text. So, for students who only need or want the access code and book, this may be the product for you if you are like me and prefer to have something tangible to follow along your lessons. For other students who just need the access code, this might be excessive. I believe there is also an option for purchasing the access card with an e-book only so that could work well and quite a bit of money.

Overall, I think this package served its purpose and was in very good condition when it arrived. I am happy with my purchase.
This was not the book recommended for my Sociology class BUT it had all the relevant information, it is well organized and easy to follow. I bought a used one which was in perfect condition and at a ridiculously cheap price...overall I would definitely recommend for first or second year university students. I haven't gotten my grade back as yet but I am confident it will be an A. :) yea me!
Scoreboard Bleeding
Book looks brand new and in excellent condition. Very happy with it!
terrible book--i recommend not taking sociology
It was very cheap, so I shouldn't complain, but the quality just was not "good" quality. The cover was completely bent and warped, and most of the pages had water damage. Can it still be used? Yes. Should I be thankful I got a textbook for less than $10? Yes. But when I see a product that is in "good" shape I don't expect 90% of the pages to have water damage. I have purchased books that were labeled as "acceptable" in better conditions that this.
