Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Eighth edition of David Newman's Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life once again invites students into the world of sociological thought. Sociology encourages students to think less about the next test and more about how the subject applies to their everyday lives. In addition to updated coverage and fresh examples, this edition features revamped Micro-Macro Connections that have been even further honed to help students understand the link between individual lives and the structure of society.

Author Biography

David M. Newman earned his B.A. from San Diego State University in 1981 and his graduate degrees from the University of Washington in Seattle (M.A. 1984, PhD 1988). After a year at the University of Connecticut, David went to DePauw University in 1989 and has been there ever since. David teaches courses in Contemporary Society, Deviance, Mental Illness, Family, Social Psychology, and Research Methods. He has published numerous articles on teaching and has presented research papers on the intersection of gender and power in intimate relationships. Recently most of his scholarly activity has been devoted to writing and revising several books, including Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life (SAGE, 2014); Identities and Inequalities: Exploring the Intersections of Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality (McGraw-Hill, 2012); and Families: A Sociological Perspective (McGraw-Hill, 2009). He is currently working on a book-length manuscript that examines the cultural meaning, institutional importance, and social limitations of "second chance" narratives in everyday life.
