Stranger and Friend: The Way of an Anthropologist, by Hortense Powdermaker (1966). It's a fast read like a novel, but filled with 4 excellent and practical case studies.

Browning, G., Halcli, A., & Webster, F. (Eds.). (1999). Understanding contemporary society: Theories of the present. Sage.

Goes over all the main social theories and what it means for a society heading into the new millennium. A great read.
