David M. Newman, Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life, Brief Edition, Third Edition

In the brief, third edition of Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life, author David Newman once again draws students in to the fascinating world of sociological thought. With his eminently readable style and lively personal anecdotes Newman encourages students to take a step back from the textbook and think about how sociology applies to their lives. Using vivid prose, current examples, and fresh data, this brief and concise text presents a well-organized and digestible overview of the social construction of society.

Kathleen Odell Korgen, Jonathan M. White and Shelley K. White, Sociologists in Action: Sociology, Social Change, and Social Justice

Providing vivid examples of how sociologists are using sociological tools to make a positive impact on our society, this one-of-a-kind book helps students better understand how their study of sociology can be put to good use in today’s world. Each chapter is filled with stories from practicing sociologists that illustrate the two core commitments of sociology: using the sociological sys to notice social patterns and using social activism to address social issues. The exciting examples of Sociologists in Action bring the content of sociology to life for students and show them how they can make a positive impact on the world.
