about this item

This textbook uses the metaphor of architecture, by viewing society as a human construction, to explain how everyday experiences affect and are affected by larger society, in terms of the construction of self and society and social structure, institutions, and everyday life. This edition has been updated to reflect recent developments, such as the 2016 election, trends in the global economy, police shootings of unarmed people of color, and the growth of social networking sites and other communication technology. It has updated features on sociological research and the connection between everyday lives of individuals and society, with examples on suicide, the vocabulary of war, family privacy, smartphone usage, cultural influence on emotions, children’s toys, dual-earner households, clergy sexual abuse, the cultural impact of antidepressants, same-sex marriage, the global health divide, interracial identity, residential segregation, racial mistrust of medical research, sexual harassment in the military, media images of eating disorders, intergenerational conflict, and the shifting politics of immigration, and new discussions of how clothing affects how people think, the mismatch between the perceptions and reality of wealth inequality, cultural appropriation of race and ethnicity, and online privacy. It has revised statistics, updated graphs, condensed or deleted sections, new material, and some reorganization, as well as extended examples of sociological theories and concepts that focus on health, illness, and medicine.
