I like Newman's books better.
Well written, with appropriate emphasis on primary research and engagement. I tried it for a semester it because it was available as part of a low cost bundle and have been impressed by some other texts edited by the same authors. Probably not the best choice for community college students whose opinions about social justice and positive social change may or may not mesh with the authors- workable and maybe useful as a secondary text with well designed assignments.
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
