"This comprehensive introduction to sociology, known for its captivating writing, cross-cultural examples, and careful applications of theory, has long been a classroom favorite for both students and professors. Centered on the unifying theme of the U.S. as an emerging postindustrial society, it provides a framework for exploring family life, religion, sexuality, gender roles, deviance, religion, and the economy. The sociology of art-as a recurring subtheme-is woven into the text and emphasized through numerous paintings and photographs. Specific chapters focus on medicine, technology and the environment, and war and peace."

I still use the Robertson in my classes for the concepts relating to Sociology. He explains these so well, especially the theories of deviance, stratification, and socialisation. I just hope he will write an updated version.
