This book is abosolutely fantastic and an easy read,a great text book, the research is current and well presented

A Great Textbook

This textbook was incredibly easy to read. The content was interesting and presented in a very clear, understandable way that was easy to learn from. I didn't have to re-read anything just to get the basic idea like in some text books I've used. The photograph essays scattered throughout the book were on interesting, thought provoking topics.

Excellent Intro Sociology Text

This book is absolutely amazing! Coming from a symbolic interactionist perspective, Newman manages to educate and entertain at the same time. I highly recommend this book to teachers that use classroom interaction as a method of instruction.

Ideal for classroom curriculum development

Now in a substantial revised and expanded fifth edition, Sociology: Exploring The Architecture Of Everyday Life By David M. Newman (Professor of Sociology, DePauw University) is organized into three major sections: "The individual and Society"; "The Construction of Self and Society"; and Social Structure, Institutions, and Everyday Life. This newly updated edition features an expanded discussion of theory including a new table summarizing the theoretical sociological perspectives, as well as the role of theory and research methods in the field of sociological inquiry. Five new "Visual Essays" have now been developed, and students will have complete access to an online "Student Study Site" created especially for this edition with information of considerable value to instructors and students including interactive quizzes, vocabulary flash cards, and resources for further study and research. Sociology: Exploring The Architecture Of Everyday Life is a superbly organized introductory text and ideal for classroom curriculum development. Also very highly recommended is the supplemental companion volume, Sociology: Exploring The Architecture Of Everyday Life - Readings (0761988289, $44.95) which is a 408-page collection of professional articles collaboratively compiled and jointly edited by David M. Newman and Jodie O'Brien (Associate Professor of Sociology, Seattle University).

Believe it or not, an ENJOYABLE textbook!

Simply excellent. Although it's a college textbook, it's easy to read and enjoyable. I found myself nearly finished with the book before the semester was half over! As Newman intended, the book has a relaxed tone and all of the chapters are tied together with a consistent theme. I now understand sociological theories and ideas--phenomena that I never thought were relevant to everyday life.
