9780199978113: Inside Social Life: Readings in Sociological Psychology and Microsociology

Now in its seventh edition, this best-selling reader provides an introduction to the sociological study of social psychology, interpersonal interaction, embodiment, emotion, selfhood, inequality, and the politics of everyday realities. Inside Social Life: Readings in Sociological Psychology and Microsociology presents forty-two selections that include both classic and contemporary theoretical work and empirical studies. Detailed introductions to each part and article identify and explain central issues, key concepts, and relationships among topics.

The seventh edition features extended introductions to each of the book's nine parts as well as reflective questions for critical thinking and application at the end of each reading. It also includes ten new readings on such engaging topics as:

* Self-presentation in on-line worlds
* The management of emotion by Mixed Martial Arts fighters
* The bodily labor and discipline expected of fashion models
* The dramaturgical rituals and masculine displays that characterize "girl hunts"
* The reproduction of racial hierarchies in an organization that serves black youth
* Stigma management among mobile home residents
* The justification of divorce by conservative Christian women
* The social construction of family troubles

An Instructor's Resource CD including chapter summaries, key points, and reflective questions and answer guidelines is available for qualified instructors.

Review:


"The introductions make the book! They are just superb. I would describe this as the best social psychology reader out there."--Doug Schrock, Florida State University


"Inside Social Life is more comprehensive than other readers, contains more classic and foundational readings and does a better job of incorporating race/class/gender throughout. The readings are accessible to undergraduates, on topics of interest to them, and all of the topics can be connected back to the overall themes of the text. The authors' theoretical perspectives are carried throughout the book, and every reading can be related back to those perspectives. This makes the book a cohesive whole."--Emily McKendry-Smith, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill
