Professor co-authors textbook

Baldwin City, Kan. — A new textbook co-authored by Timothy Buzzell, professor of sociology at Baker University, focuses on shifting global politics, historic elections, politics in everyday life, and terrorism.

“Power, Politics and Society: An Introduction to Political Sociology,” published by Pearson/Allyn & Bacon, is written for undergraduate classrooms.

“A project like this for me really grows from my interactions with students, and this text is dedicated to my students,” said Buzzell, also the chair of Baker’s Department of History, Culture and Society. “It’s the culmination of us discovering together the complexities of politics and social life.  As one of my students said, ‘I think it’s a good time to be a sociologist.’ In the field of political sociology, that may be an understatement.”


Baker University is committed to assuring student learning, and developing confident, competent and responsible contributors to society.
