Welcome to the SAGE edge site for The Engaged Sociologist, Sixth Edition!

This site is intended to enhance your use of The Engaged Sociologist, Sixth Edition, by Jonathan M. White and Shelley K. White. Please note that all the materials on this site are especially geared toward maximizing your understanding of the material. 

This fully updated edition of The Engaged Sociologist carries the public sociology movement into the introductory sociology classroom. While teaching students to think sociologically and to develop a sociological eye, it also demonstrates how sociology can be used as a tool for improving society.  As they explain the discipline's basic theories and concepts, the authors provide many examples of "engaged" sociologists who are working to solve some of society's most intractable problems. Through a number of exercises and projects in every chapter, students are encouraged to become engaged in their own communities. The authors put their own commitment to public sociology into action by donating 10% of their royalties to a non-profit organization that works to alleviate social injustice.

This site features an array of free resources you can access anytime, anywhere.


We gratefully acknowledge Jonathan M. White and Shelley K. White for writing an excellent text and creating the materials on this site.
