This text is accessible and informative, acquainting students with the narratives of contemporary social change and teaching the critical thinking skills needed to make sense of the changing world of the 21st century. The book does not strive to answer the question: why does social change happen? Rather, it examines five forces that are, and will continue to be, major drivers of social change: science and technology, social movements, corporate power, government actions, and war.

Not since the 1960s has there been such a time when students wanted and needed to understand social change. This text takes this desire for social change into the realm of social science where clarification, understanding, inquiry and involvement can help provide for both informed opinions and a path to effective engagement.
