Dear Colleagues,
        I've been lucky enough to have been asked recently to teach
on-board the Univ. of Pittsburgh's Semester at Sea program in
Spring 2002.  The hard part is that I now must construct syllabi
for my three courses (Social Networks, Deviance and Social Control,
and Society and Law), incorporating an explicit cross-cultural/national
comparative format.
        I'm wondering if any of you might have any suggestions for
undergraduate texts in these areas that might incorporate a fair amount
of comparative material.  Port specific material is preferred by Pitt,
so recommendations for material on Cuba, Brazil, South Africa, Kenya,
India, Malaysia, Viet Nam, China (Hong Kong and Shanghai), and Japan
would be especially appreciated.

Thanks ever so much,

Tim Brazill.
