Abstract

A textbook entitled American Society: An Overview was designed by this author for Japanese students taking a course in American studies. The text, both implicitly and explicitly, adopts a sociological perspective with a heavy emphasis on law, politics and economics. Furthermore, it embodies the view that the discipline of sociology is, at least in part, radical social critique-radical in the sense of trying to go to the root understandings of how social processes work, in this case, in American society. It is a short textbook, intended for a one semester course ; however, the goals are ambitious in so far the textbook aims to show students the liberating power of sociological critique. It is hoped that the student, after completing the course, will begin to radically question the validity of social structures and institutions.
