Additional Book Details

This new Brief Sixth Edition of David Newman’s text is the streamlined version of Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life with the same goal: to be a textbook that, in the author’s words, "reads like a real book." 

Newman shows how to see the "unfamiliar in the familiar"—to step back and see organization and predictability in our taken-for-granted personal experiences. He uses the metaphors of "architecture" and "construction" to help us understand that society is not something that exists "out there," independently of ourselves; rather, it is a human creation that is planned, maintained, or altered by individuals. Instead of surveying every subfield in sociology, this text focuses on the structural features of society, the social construction of the self and identity, and social inequality in the context of social institutions.
