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 came 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: Brief Edition (Sage, 2017); Identities and Inequalities: Exploring the Intersections of Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality (McGraw-Hill, 2017); and Families: A Sociological Perspective (McGraw-Hill, 2009). His most recent book, Redemption or Stigma? The Promise, Practice and Price of Second Chances in American Culture (Lexington Books), is projected to be published in 2019. It examines the cultural meaning, institutional importance, and social limitations of “second chance” and “permanent stigma” narratives in everyday life.

Review:

"This is the best introductory sociology textbook on the market today." 

(Ron Aminzade)

"This text was refreshing for me as an instructor; it ignited my students and made for stimulating discussions....I only hope that it is so successful that it stays in print for years to come, in which case it may be my last new text adoption. I thank David Newman for writing the introductory textbook for which I have been looking for a long time." 

(Kathryn Johnson)

"If, as many of us believe, the teaching agenda of the millennium is to connect for our students the lived experiences of real people to the structured world of social institutions and spaces, then the Newman book is THE text to use to achieve this teaching goal." 

(Bernice Pescosolido)
