"I suspect that beginning students assigned to read sociology feel much like the theatergoer who stumbles into a foreign film without subtitles. [So] I tried to keep the needs of the introductory student in mind. I tried to bridge the gap between the sociologists who wrote these articles and the students who will read them. My goal is to replace boredom with intellectual challenge, to make sociology not 'easy,' but accessible."--Lisa McIntyre Using a conceptual framework,The Practical Skeptic: Readings in Sociologyincludes classic sociological research writings as well as recent pieces on fascinating topics of interest to students. It is the ideal companion to McIntyre’s text,The Practical Skeptic: Core Concepts in Sociologyor other sociology texts. Readings in this edition challenge students to re-evaluate familiar social arenas: the college classroom, televised sports shows, restaurants, doctors’ offices and even public restrooms. The essential lesson of the readings is this: There is much that goes on in the social world that escapes the sociologically untrained eye. "I would certainly adopt this reader again. It is a wonderful, enriching complement to McIntyre’s textbook and introduces students to the richness and depth that characterizes the sociological literature."-- Susan Humpers-Ginther, Minnesota State University, Moorhead

The book concludes by considering the ethics of and various ways that social network analysis can inform counterinsurgency strategizing.

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Created by Charles Horton Cooley in 1902 (McIntyre 2006), the looking-glass self is a social psychological concept that a person's self grows out of society's interpersonal interactions and the perceptions of others. Cooley clarified it in writing that society is an interweaving and interworking of mental selves. The term "looking glass self" was first used by Cooley in his work, Human Nature and the Social Order in 1902. It has three major components and is unique to humans (Shaffer 2005). According to Lisa McIntyre's The Practical Skeptic: Core Concepts in Sociology, in the looking-glass self a person views himself or herself through others' perceptions in society and in turn gains identity. Identity, or self, is the result of the concept in which we learn to see ourselves as others do (Yeung & Martin 2003).
