Providing provocative, eye-opening examples that illuminate the relationship between the individual and society, this Eighth Edition of David M. Newman’s and Jodi O'Brian's acclaimed Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life Readings includes a mix of short articles, chapters, and excerpts.
