Situating Everyday Life: Practices and Places

The study of everyday life is fundamental to our understanding of modern society. This book provides a coherent, interdisciplinary way to engage with everyday activities and environments. Arguing for an innovative, ethnographic approach, it uses detailed examples, based in real world and digital research, to bring its theories to life.
Sarah Pink focuses on the sensory, embodied, mobile, and mediated elements of practice and place as a route to understanding wider issues. By doing so, she convincingly outlines a robust theoretical and methodological approach to understanding contemporary everyday life and activism.

The Instant Economist: Everything You Need to Know About How the Economy Works

The Instant Economist: Everything You Need to Know About How the Economy Works

This review is being written from the perspective of someone who has studied economics for a lifetime and taught it to college students. I have come to realize that when an introduction to economics is presented as if it were designed to be the first course among many for economics majors, it is invariably deemed by most people to be quite boring. However, when economics is presented and explained as the study of how people make decisions in life, all of a sudden it becomes much more interesting. This book takes the second approach, and the author does a good job summarizing a variety of key concepts in short chapters of about eight pages each.

Mind in Action

Mind in Action

This book explores recent developments in the sociology of knowledge and highlights the shift away from traditional - particularly Cartesian - conceptions of person, mind and social behaviour. The author argues that a new "epistemic" sociology has emerged in which the central focus is the social construction of the intelligibility of phenomena, in everyday practical affairs as well as within the conduct of scientific inquiry. This approach is documented with lucid examples, and is shown to make possible a radical rethinking of the cognizing subject.
