December 16, 2008
December 16, 2008, Greencastle, Ind. — Families: A Sociological Perspective by David M. Newman, professor of sociology at DePauw University, has been published by McGraw-Hill. The textbook "successfully connects to students’ personal lives while showing how sociologists understand and explain families," notes the publisher. "It is not only informative in terms of current sociological knowledge of families, but meaningful in terms of contemporary family debates and applicable to students’ own family experiences."
Dr. Newman's book is "very student-oriented; very student-friendly writing style; engaging, contemporary, and thoughtful," states Susan Cody-Rydzewski, who teaches sociology at LaGrange College.
Adds Carolyn Mosher of Jefferson Community College, "This is truly the best sociology of the family text I have found in all my years of teaching. I would describe it as a true freshman/sophomore level sociology of the family text that is interesting, very readable, yet one that has strong 'sociological substance'."

David Newman is also the author of Sociology: Exploring the Architecture of Everyday Life and Identities & Inequalities: Exploring the Intersections of Race, Class, Gender, and Sexuality.
