Chapter 1: A Sociological Compass
Social Solidarity: refers to the degree to which group members share beliefs and
values, and the intensity and frequency of their interaction.
Strong social bonds decrease the probability that a person will commit suicide if
adversity strikes.
Social Structures: are relatively stable patterns of social relations.
Microstructures: are the patterns of relatively intimate social relations formed
during face-to-face interaction. Families, friendship circles, and work associations
are all examples of microstructures.
Macrostructures: are overarching patterns of social relations that lie outside and
