Adapted from Henslin's best-selling comprehensive hardback text, Core Concepts provides in-depth coverage of ten high-priority topics that are the foundation of many introductory sociology courses. This unique paperback offers a concise and economical format without sacrificing depth of coverage. Unlike a brief or essentials text, the ten chapters that make up Core Concepts are not edited down from a longer book. Instead, they provide full coverage of those topics that instructors emphasize the most in a one-semester or one-term introductory sociology course. And like Henslin's other texts, it features the author's familiar down-to-earth approach and personal writing style that highlight the sociology of everyday life. With wit, personal reflection, and illuminating examples, Henslin shares with readers a passion for sociology unmatched by any other introductory text.

Counter to popular perceptions, contemporary American sociology is and promotes a profoundly sacred project at heart. Sociology today is in fact animated by sacred impulses, driven by sacred commitments, and serves a sacred project. Sociology appears on the surface to be a secular, scientific enterprise--its founding fathers were mostly atheists. Its basic operating premises are secular and naturalistic. Sociologists today are disproportionately not religious, compared to all Americans, and often irreligious. The Sacred Project of American Sociology shows, counter-intuitively, that the secular enterprise that everyday sociology appears to be pursuing is actually not what is really going on at sociology's deepest level. Christian Smith conducts a self-reflexive, tables-turning, cultural and institutional sociology of the profession of American sociology itself, showing that this allegedly secular discipline ironically expresses Emile Durkheim's inescapable sacred, exemplifies its own versions of Marxist false consciousness, and generates a spirited reaction against Max Weber's melancholically observed disenchantment of the world. American sociology does not escape the analytical net that it casts over the rest of the ordinary world. Sociology itself is a part of that very human, very social, often very sacred and spiritual world. And sociology's ironic mis-recognition of its own sacred project leads to a variety of arguably self-destructive and distorting tendencies. This book re-asserts a vision for what sociology is most important for, in contrast with its current commitments, and calls sociologists back to a more honest, fair, and healthy vision of its purpose.

Und jedem Streben wohnt ein Glück inne ... Zu Fuß quer durch die USA wandern oder so viele Vogelarten wie möglich beobachten - das sind nur zwei Beispiele für ungewöhnliche Herausforderungen, denen sich ganz gewöhnliche Menschen gestellt haben. Chris Guillebeau beschreibt, wie das Streben nach selbst gesteckten Zielen Sinn und Glück in das eigene Leben bringt. Chris Guillebeau hat sein Projekt, alle Länder dieser Erde zu bereisen, umgesetzt. Und er hat erkannt: Nicht das Ziel an sich ist am wichtigsten, sondern der Weg dorthin. Nach etwas streben, planen, äußere und innere Hürden überwinden - all dies macht uns oft glücklicher und lässt uns innerlich mehr wachsen als das Erreichen des Ziels selbst. Zahlreiche inspirierende Beispiele sowie praktische Ratschläge weisen dem Leser den Weg: So findet er seine ganz persönliche Herausforderung, so geht er sie an und verleiht damit seinem Leben mehr Bedeutung.
