David M. Newman, Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life, Brief Edition, Third Edition
In the brief, third edition of Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life, author David Newman once again draws students in to the fascinating world of sociological thought. With his eminently readable style and lively personal anecdotes Newman encourages students to take a step back from the textbook and think about how sociology applies to their lives. Using vivid prose, current examples, and fresh data, this brief and concise text presents a well-organized and digestible overview of the social construction of society.
George Ritzer, The McDonaldization of Society: 20th Anniversary Edition, Seventh Edition
George Ritzer's McDonaldization of Society, now celebrating its' 20thanniversary, continues to stand as one of the pillars of modern day sociological thought. By linking theory to 21st century culture, this book resonates with students in a way that few other books do, opening their eyes to many current issues, especially in consumption and globalization. As in previous editions, the book has been updated and it offers new discussions of, among others, In-N-Out- Burger and Pret A Manger as possible antitheses of McDonaldization. The biggest change, however, is that the book has been radically streamlined to offer an even clearer articulation of the now-famous McDonaldization thesis.
