Foundations of Sociology

Each section in this Foundations of Sociology textbook is introduced by a piece of writing from someone who lives the experience. An edited version off my post Sensitive to the D-Word starts the chapter on disability and social. 

From the Amazon listing: "This vibrant, engaging introduction to society and social life promises to be the book sociology students will want to read. Through his inimitable narrative style, author John Steckley explores the theories, structures, and relationships that make up our social world while encouraging students to think critically about their role in society. Cutting-edge and comprehensive, Foundations of Sociology lays the groundwork students need to succeed in introductory sociology courses and beyond."
