Author Harold Cox must surely be in violation of his contract with the publisher. This textbook has been through multiple editions, the most recent of which is copyright 2006. But there are key topics for which he has in recent years made apparently *no* attempt to provide updated empirical data for.

Median household income, for instance, is a phenomenon that changes over time. (Inflation, etc.) Yet, the income data he reports are, in many cases, from the mid-1990s. That's just one example.

The most egregious example of his completely dropping the ball is opinion data on age synchronization. As culture changes, people's attitudes about age synchronization (what age a person should be when they tackle critical life tasks such as marriage, child-bearing, first job, etc.) change. I could see using survey data from maybe as out of date as 10 years ago on this matter because, yes, culture changes slowly--but to use survey responses respondents provided in the 1950s and '60s is ***outrageous***.

Back in the '60s, yes, people's perception of the "normal" age for someone to get married might have been 18 or 19. But wake up, Harold Cox. Times have changed since then. People in our times have a vision of people getting married not much earlier than their mid-20s. In a text that purports to be a sociology text, and therefore one that explores such key concepts as norms, Cox's inclusion of such out of date data about perceptions on norms is worse than not covering that phenomenon at all. By not updating that data, Cox has rendered this book almost unusable as a textbook and my students are profoundly displeased with him, to say the least.

The only strong suit of this text is its treatments of major sociological theories on aging and the question of what is a theory and what role does theory play in the scientific method. Well handled, there.

But otherwise, I give the book about a D.
