Summary

Continuing his tradition of highly engaging, trade-like writing, best-selling author David Newman once again starts in a familiar place-the everyday world-and then introduces sociological concepts and institutions as they influence students'" daily existence. Full of vivid, real-world examples and touching personal vignettes, this text offers a solid introduction to basic sociological concepts and helps students realize their role in constructing, planning, maintaining, and fixing society.
