Synopsis:

The Sixth Edition of Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life, Readings continues to provide students with vivid, provocative, and eye-opening examples of the practice of sociology. The readings represent a variety of viewpoints 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.

Key Features of the Sixth Edition: Includes New Articles: Of the 36 selections in this edition, 14 are new to provide a contemporary sociological perspective. Addresses Important Topics: The editors emphasize how race, social class, gender, and sexual orientation intersect to influence everyday experiences. This volume includes works by main figures in the field, such as Sharlene Hesse-Biber, Arlie Russell Hochschild, and Min Zhou. Focuses on Global Issues: This edition includes more coverage of international issues and world religions to show how our lives are linked to, and affected by, our increasingly global society. Emphasizes Theoretical Origins: The readings examine everyday experiences, important social issues, and distinct historical events that illustrate the relationship between the individual and society. This new edition provides more detail regarding the theory and/or history related to each issue presented.

Editors David M. Newman and Jodi O???Brien provide brief chapter introductions that offer a sociological context for the readings in each chapter. For those using the companion textbook, these introductions will furnish a quickintellectual link between the readings and information in the textbook.

Synopsis:

Excellence and Innovation for Teaching Introductory Sociology

I am a sociology teacher first and foremost. So I set out to write a book that is as helpful to the craft of teaching sociology as possible. You will not find a gargantuan summary of every sociological concept, topic, and theory here. Instead, I chose to limit the focus, allowing for a deeper, more thorough, and hopefully more useful analysis of key ideas in the discipline. The book revolves around a sustained theme>
