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 teaches courses in Contemporary Society, Deviance, Mental Illness, Family, Social Psychology, and Research Methods.

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.

" 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."
