Now in its sixth edition, Spencer E. Cahill's best-selling anthology provides an introduction to the sociological study of social psychology, interpersonal interaction, social construction, and the social shaping of human experience in our everyday lives. Inside Social Life: Readings in Sociological Psychology and Microsociology presents forty-one selections that include both classic and contemporary theoretical work as well as empirical studies. Detailed introductions to each part and article identify and explain central issues, key concepts, and relationships among topics. Incorporating the insights of Kent Sandstrom, the new coeditor, the sixth edition features twenty-three new readings on such fascinating topics as: * Symbols and the creation of reality * Speed culture and TV commercials * Smell, odor, and somatic work * The organizational management of shame * The embodiment of gender differences in preschool practices * Sex education and the reproduction of inequality * Gang-related gun violence and the self * Emotion work among employees at an abortion clinic * Police oppression of Mexican Americans * Women, hair, and power * Being Middle Eastern in the context of the war on terror * Nazi doctors in Auschwitz . . . and much more. The sixth edition also features section introductions that link the selections together and an Instructor's Resource CD and Test Bank.
