Authors: Saidamin P. Bagolong, Maribeth Q. Galindo, Jackson A. Sison, Deanna Febra C. Rodinas
The purpose of this textbook is to serve as reference for an introductory course in Sociology. The inclusion of family planning and other social issues provides background knowledge for an understanding of these, and other contemporary conditions.
The book is likewise designed to facilitate the integral development of students for them to effect changes in the self as well as the environment thereby realizing the fullness of human life.
Even though this is an introductory textbook, we have deliberately retained many of the salient features of sociology as a young discipline. This is the reason why we incorporated many social issues to stimulate students’ curiosity about learning society, culture, family planning, gender, environment and eve indigenous people.
This textbook could not have been written without help from many people whose ideas we have borrowed, modified and incorporated. To them we are deeply indebted.
