Overview

Continuing his tradition of highly engaging, trade-like writing, best-selling author David M. Newman once again starts in a familiar place—the everyday world—and then introduces sociological concepts and institutions as they influence students’ daily existence. Full of vivid, contemporary examples and touching personal vignettes, Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life, Tenth Edition offers a solid introduction to basic sociological concepts, links these concepts to everyday, real-world experiences, and helps students realize their role in constructing, planning, maintaining, and reconstructing society.

Editorial Reviews

Ron Aminzade

"This is the best introductory sociology textbook on the market today."

Kathryn Johnson

"This text was refreshing for me as an instructor; it ignited my students and made for stimulating discussions….I only hope that it is so successful that it stays in print for years to come, in which case it may be my last new text adoption. I thank David Newman for writing the introductory textbook for which I have been looking for a long time."

Bernice Pescosolido

"If, as many of us believe, the teaching agenda of the millennium is to connect for our students the lived experiences of real people to the structured world of social institutions and spaces, then the Newman book is THE text to use to achieve this teaching goal."

Savannah Jones
"Because it is value-priced and briefer, the text makes it easy for instructors to assign other readings."
Karen Dalke

“The students read the book and that is the biggest hurdle I often have to overcome. I love teaching from this book.”

Harvest Moon

“I have used it since 2002 and have not seen anything better on the market.”

Meet the Author

David Newman earned his bachelor’s degree from San Diego State University in 1981 and his graduate degrees from the University of Washington in Seattle (M.A. 1984, Ph D 1988). After a year at the University of Connecticut, David came to De Pauw in the fall of 1989 and has been here ever since. David teaches courses in Deviance, Mental Illness, Family, Social Psychology, and Research Methods. He has published numerous articles on teaching and has presented several research papers on the intersection of gender and power in intimate relationships. Recently most of his scholarly activity has been devoted to writing and revising several books, including Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life (SAGE ©2010); Identities and Inequalities : Exploring the Intersections of Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality (Mc Graw-Hill ©2006); and Families: A Sociological Perspective (Mc Graw-Hill ©2009). He is currently working on a book-length manuscript that examines the cultural meaning, institutional importance, and everyday experience of “second chances.”
