About the Book
Help students view society from a conflict perspective NOTE:
REVEL(TM) for In Conflict and Order: Understanding Society examines society from a conflict perspective, prompting students to ponder one of the central questions of sociology: Who benefits from the existing customs and social order, and who does not? Via their conflict-centered approach, authors D. Stanley Eitzen, Maxine Baca Zinn, and Kelly Eitzen Smith offer a realistic appraisal of society and lead students to think critically about existing social arrangements with an eye toward restructuring society along more humane lines. REVEL for the fourteenth edition offers expanded coverage of contemporary topics, including the changing economy and conflicts over immigration, to reinforce how the issues in today's headlines can be understood through the lens of sociology. REVEL is Pearson's newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, REVEL replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, REVEL is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience - for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.
This Revel Combo Access pack includes a Revel access code plus a loose-leaf print reference (delivered by mail) to complement your Revel experience. In addition to this access code, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Revel.
