I use _Statistics for Social Data Analysis_ by Knoke, Bohrnstedt, and
Mee.  You can find the particulars at
http://www.wadsworth.com/cgi-wadsworth/course_products_wp.pl?fid=M2&discipline_number=14&product_isbn_issn=0875814484
(which may require some copying and pasting).

The book moves through some interesting terrain late in the book.  It
is also fairly logically structured.

Best,
Alan

This fall I'll be teaching an intro stats course to
undergraduates in sociology and other social sciences.
 I'm beginning to search around for the elusive
perfect textbook and I'm wondering if folks have
suggestions.  I'm looking for a book that emphasizes
intuition about statistics and their proper use rather
than a mathematically-oriented one that focuses on
deriving the formulas.  In my ideal world, the book
would provide Stata examples, but that seems to be a
rare occurance. Why do so many books provide SPSS
examples?

thanks for your suggestions,

Matissa
