Conversational Sociology uses an innovative, dynamic, and intercultural approach to present, in simple language, a condensed version of soiological concepts and methods. It is illustrated with a study of the attitudes of Chinese college students toward intercultural marriage, particularly between Chinese and American Caucasians. The approach is designed to broaden the field of sociology beyond the limits of an introductory textbook--with the emphasis placed upon an understanding of human relationships, rather than upon the science that studies these relationships. This cross-cultural study of attitudes toward intermarriage is appealing, predicts the intercultural bridging of East and West, and assists those interested in basic sociology, social change, and Asian-American studies. Given its unique approach, this book will both stimulate the student and interest the sociology scholar.
