Newman, David M. Author

Image Not Available

The intro textbook that keeps students reading

Praised for its writing style that reads like a book you’d pore over at the corner café, this best-selling core text starts in a familiar place—the everyday world—and then introduces sociological concepts and institutions as they impact the student’s daily existence. Full of vivid, real-world examples and touching personal vignettes, this text offers a solid introduction to basic sociological concepts and helps students realize their role in constructing, planning, maintaining, and fixing society.

New and Proven Features

  • Revised discussions of race relations and racial inequality integrate the Obama election and presidency.
  • The current economic recession is highlighted in discussions of the economy, particularly in Chapter 10.
  • Micro-Macro Connections help students better understand the link between individual lives and the structure of society.
  • Revised examples from American subcultures draw students into content relevant to their lives.
  • Cross-cultural examples and discussions of globalization show students how their lives are affected by our increasingly global society.
  • All statistical information has been updated.

About the Author:

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.
