Sociology, Brief Second Edition
In this Second Brief Edition of Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life, David M. Newman takes students inside today's pressing sociological issues and shows them how the compelling events on their minds today-such as the current economic recession and the Obama presidency-relate to enduring sociological concepts. Throughout the new edition, Newman introduces students to the fascinating world of sociology, using current real-world examples and personal observations that help them understand how sociology affects them.
Second Thoughts, Fourth Edition
This book encourages students to sharpen their analytic focus with 24 mini-chapters that use social research to examine popular conceptions on everyday issues, accepted by many as "conventional wisdom". It is the perfect book for jumpstarting critical thinking on key social issues and an invaluable resource for Introductory Sociology, Social Problems, or Contemporary Issues courses.
