These two leaders of the Teaching Sociology movement encourage students to develop their sociological imaginations through role-taking. Assuming the role of a child living in poverty in India or of a member of an African tribe, students learn to re-envision their global society.
An innovative, integrated framework provides core sociological concepts, while features such as Contributing to Our Social World enable students to "do" public sociology. The new third edition of Our Social World: Condensed Version broadens students' perspectives by exposing them to the larger, global world.

"The pedagogical features found in Ballantine and Roberts were useful, particularly the Thinking Sociologically questions. I think it helps the instructor think about questions they want to ask the students. And it helps to think about questions that might spark discussion. The Engaging Sociology sections also can be used at the beginning of a lecture discussion to get the students interested in the material and to see how the material can be applied to them-excellent."-- Heidi Williams
"I like the use of the social world model to demonstrate how the individual is affected by larger community, national, societal, and global phenomena. The pages are aesthetically pleasing and there is a good balance of pictures, charts, other graphics, and text. The chapters convey a great deal of information while still remaining organized and concise. I feel like the writing is accessible to students but also retains a professionalism."-- Kayla Pritchard
