Unlike most introductory texts that take a topical approach to studying sociology, this smart, challenging, and accessibly written text looks at the core principles of the discipline, making links to a contemporary context. Both students and instructors will find in these pages a fresh and original approach to teaching sociology. Beamish begins by providing a sociological profile of today's students, juxtaposing their collective biography against the current historical moment. He builds on this discussion by introducing Mills's concept of the sociological imagination and outlining a method for thinking sociologically; then, he uses Hitchcock's film Psycho to illustrate the difference between psychological and sociological analysis. Having established the usefulness of sociological thinking, Beamish moves back to the classical theorists, outlining in depth their important contributions to sociology. He concludes the book by applying concepts from the classical tradition to a sociological discussion of culture--ending with an analysis of Bob Dylan's artistry to illustrate how these concepts have an enduring quality in contemporary times.

Except it was molten ice. It had that same kind if pyroclastic flow to it," recalled Peter Christian of the day back in when he flew over a remote corner of Wrangell-St. Elias National Park and Preserve and saw a slurry of ice coursing rapidly downhill through a barren drainage. That unnamed drainage on Mount Sulzer, known locally as Flat Creek, was largely barren due to two events in the preceding three years that made the icy flow below Christian seem miniscule in comparison. No one witnessed the or events, but their flows stripped the drainage's mountainsides of stands of a centuries' old forest of white spruce, trees that in this harsh environment stand 30 or so feet tall on trunks about foot in diameter. From floor of the drainage, the slurries of ice, mud, and rocks quickly filled the small valley and climbed more than feet to overtop a hill. Through satellite imagery, it was determined that the larger flow also overran and eclipsed the footprint of a similar event in Combined, the two events swept away roughly 6.
It may be 3. We may be accustomed to our vibrant blue sky, day-glo fuchsia sunsets, clouds that explode with electricity, and wind that can level buildings — but these are the kinds of things that serve to remind us that our planet is just as otherworldly as other celestial bodies. There are all kinds of things going on in this amazing universe, but right here in our very own solar system we have a dwarf planet, Ceres, with a pretty nifty trick. Well, a lot of nifty tricks actually, but this one was just published by a team of scientists working with NASA's Dawn mission. What they conclude in their research is that the mountain called Ahuna Mons is a volcanic dome unlike any seen elsewhere in the solar system. At nearly 3 miles high and 11 miles wide at the base, Ahuna Mons is a significant structure on the dwarf planet; while Ceres is the largest body in the asteroid belt, it is still only miles wide. As Dawn completes its low altitude phase of the Ceres mission — where it has been working from a distance of miles — it prepares for the next phase which will take it to a higher altitude to gather more information from a new vantage point. We can only imagine what other wonders will be discovered about this queen of the asteroid belt. Learn more about beautiful Ceres and Ahuna Mons in the video below. Share Twitter Pinterest Email.
