David M. Newman presents a high-quality introductory resource in his textbook Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life, ISBN 9781412978132. This market-leading book incorporates a comprehendible writing style for easy understanding and demonstrates how sociology contributes to their people's daily lives. Students will thrive from their experiences reading the anthology of specifically chosen articles welcoming them into the world of sociological perspective. The genius behind this text is that of David M. Newman, a Professor of Sociology at DePauw University. It is here that he teaches introductory courses as well as research methods, family, social psychology, deviance, and mental illness. Newman has won several teaching awards and is a seasoned writer with work including Identities and Inequalities: Exploring the Intersections of Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality and Families: A Sociological Perspective. Newman artfully organizes the concepts of Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life across three sections and 14 chapters. Part I begins this text with a look at 'The Individual and Society' with chapters devoted to taking a new look at a familiar world as well as seeing and thinking sociologically. Part II delves into 'The Construction of Self and Society' through chapters presenting information on the social construction of knowledge, culture and history, socialization, the presentation of self, social deviance, and intimacy and families. 'Social Structure, Institutions, and Everyday Life' is the focus of the final section in this book, part III. Chapters in this section investigate organizations and social institutions, social class and inequality, race and ethnicity, sex and gender, demographic trends, as well as reconstructing society.
