This two-volume set distills articles of the broadest interest that appeared in Salem's five-volume Survey of Social Science: Sociology Series 1995. Each of the 90 contributions begins with ready-reference information, identifying the type of sociology and fields of study to which each topic belongs. A brief summary then describes the topic's significance, and terms are defined. The body of the article is divided into overview, applications, and context sections. Topics include culture, collective behavior and social movements, deviance and social control, major social institutions, origins and definitions, demography, racial and ethnic relations, sex and gender, socialization and social interaction, research, urban and rural life, and social change, stratification, and structure.
