Abstract:

"This work is especially planned to give the student beginning his college work in sociology the broad background necessary for the advantageous pursuit of advanced courses. It is the author's hope that it may give to the base course in sociology somewhat the same unity and systematic survey of fundamentals which elementary texts in economics give to a neighboring field. That there is need for such a work is shown by the present experimentation with various types of introductory courses. It is shown also by the wide feeling among teachers of sociology that there is an essential background of fact and theory which the student must have in order to carry on the study of advanced courses with profit, but which can now be gotten only by the use of long and varied reference lists. This book is based frankly on the belief that a broad introductory course is preferable, as a first course, either to the problems course or to the more specialized course dealing with one type of sociological interpretation"--Preface.
