9780761988274: Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life : Readings

One of the most popular anthologies used in introductory sociology courses, and the companion volume to the highly-succesful Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life, has been updated and revised to offer students an innovative sociological perspective on their everyday lives. The new edition continues to provide students with vivid, provocative, and eye-opening examples of the practice of sociology. The readings represent a variety of styles and include articles written by psychologists, anthropologists, social commentators, and journalists, in addition to sociologists. Many of the readings are drawn from carefully conducted social research, while others are personal narratives that put human faces on matters of sociological relevance. The editors provide brief chapter introductions that offer a sociological context for the readings in each chapter. To add value for students using the accompanying textbook, these introductions will furnish a quick intellectual link between the readings and material contained in the textbook. New to the Fifth Edition: The number of articles has been streamlined from 38 to 32, including 9 that are new to this edition.The importance of race, social class, and gender in people's everyday lives is emphasized. The Thinking About the Reading review feature has been revised and added to all articles in the book.

About the Author:

David M. Newman earned his B.A. from San Diego State University in 1981 and his graduate degrees from the University of Washington in Seattle (M.A. 1984, PhD 1988). After a year at the University of Connecticut, David went to DePauw University in 1989 and has been there ever since. David teaches courses in Contemporary Society, Deviance, Mental Illness, Family, Social Psychology, and Research Methods. He has published numerous articles on teaching and has presented 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, 2014); Identities and Inequalities: Exploring the Intersections of Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality (McGraw-Hill, 2012); and Families: A Sociological Perspective (McGraw-Hill, 2009). He is currently working on a book-length manuscript that examines the cultural meaning, institutional importance, and social limitations of “second chance” narratives in everyday life.

Jodi O'Brien (Ph.D., University of Washington) is Professor of Sociology at Seattle University. She teaches courses in social psychology, sexuality, inequality, and classical and contemporary theory. She writes and lectures on the cultural politics of transgressive identities and communities. Her other books include Everyday Inequalities (Basil Blackwell), Encyclopedia of Gender and Society (Pine Forge Press), Social Prisms: Reflections on Everyday Myths and Paradoxes (Pine Forge Press), and The Production of Reality: Essays and Readings on Social Interaction, Fifth Edition (Pine Forge Press).
