This balanced, mainstream, beautifully written, and up-to-date text is unrivaled in its ability to get students to see the connection between themselves and the social world. It teaches students how to think sociologically, not just what to think, and emphasizes the importance of diversity and a global perspective. It has been heralded for its inclusion of pop culture examples that instantly connect with today’s students, and for its presentation of sociological concepts in a fresh, contemporary light. The book features movie reviews in the popular Sociology at the Movies boxes that explore the sociological messages within recent movies such as CRASH, BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, SYRIANA, and many others. The authors also draw on the real world with examples from Chris Rock’s stand-up routine, the hip-hop music scene, and the rituals of the Super Bowl, as well as scholarly discussions of topics ranging from race and poverty to religious practices.

Sociology

Author: David M. Newman
Publisher: SAGE Publications
ISBN: 9781544325804
Release Date: 2018-07-26
Genre: Social Science

This new Brief Sixth Edition of David Newman’s text is the streamlined version of Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life with the same goal: to be a textbook that, in the author’s words, "reads like a real book." Newman shows to see the “unfamiliar in the familiar”—to step back and see organization and predictability in their take-for-granted personal experiences. Newman uses the metaphors of “architecture” and “construction,” to help students understand that society is not something that exists “out there,” independently of themselves; it is a human creation that is planned, maintained, or altered by individuals. Instead of surveying every subfield in sociology, this text focuses on the structural features of society, the social construction of self and identity, and social inequality in the context of social institutions. The new edition includes examples and analysis of contemporary events and trends, including: The changes in our national politics brought about by the 2016 presidential election Increasing societal attention paid to fatal encounters between police and unarmed people of color or incidents of sexual harassment and assault School shootings and the debates over gun ownership The continued dramatic growth of communication technology, particularly social networking sites

Anthony Giddens "Soziologie" gilt weltweit als das Einführungswerk in das gleichnamige Fach.

Danach wird es immer spezifischer: Über Kultur, Gesellschaft und Individuum und Gesellschaftstypen führt der Dialog weiter zu Geschlecht und Sexualität, Körper und Familie, um schließlich Moderne Organisationen, Massenmedien, Arbeit und Wirtschaftsleben oder den Globalen Wandel und die Umweltkrise zu diskutieren. Immer wird dabei mit plastischen Bildern gearbeitet, und immer hat man als LeserIn den Eindruck, mittendrin und dabei zu sein was die Lektüre des Buches zu einem beeindruckenden Gespräch über Soziologie macht und den Lerneffekt garantiert.
