The Sixth Edition of Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life, Readings continues to provide students with vivid, provocative, and eye-opening examples of the practice of sociology. The readings represent a variety of viewpoints and include articles written by psychologists, anthropologists, social commentators, and journalists, in addition to sociologists. Many of the readings are drawn from carefully conducted social research, while others are personal narratives that put human faces on matters of sociological relevance.

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.
" 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."
