Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life
This new edition of the widely adopted Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life once again invites students into the world of sociological thought. Moving away from the conventional, dry introductory sociological textbooks this unique textbook adopts an approach that encourages students to think less about their next test and more about how sociology applies to their everyday lives.
Each chapter has been updated with anecdotes, personal observations, and accounts of contemporary events. Many of the examples come from incidents in the author′s life; others are taken right from today′s news headlines. Examples and sociological insights from 9/11 and subsequent military actions in Afghanistan and Iraq have been added to show students the pervasiveness and applicability of sociology in our ordinary experiences.
There is also an increased focus on Globalization with many cross-cultural examples and discussions of globalization added illustrating clearly how our lives are linked to, and affected by, our increasingly global society.
Updated features focus on suicide, the toy industry′s role in gender socialization, impression management on the Internet, the formation of virtual communities, dual earner parents, the cultural impact of antidepressant drugs, the U.S. health care system, media images of social class, welfare trends, racial superiority in professional sports, racial profiling, the shifting politics of immigration, and environmental justice
There is an accompanying website that will have information for instructors and students on how to develop and use visual essays, as well as interactive quizzes, vocabulary flashcards, and resources for further study and research. The site can be accessed at www.pineforge.com/newman5study.
There is also an extensive Instructor Resources on CD-Rom available to adopting lecturers which includes PowerPoint® slides for lectures, multiple-choice, true/false, and essay test questions, chapter summaries, exercises to actively engage the sociological imagination, class discussion ideas, and much more.
