Donald Putnam profoundly influenced a generation of geographers, and played a major role in establishing geography as an academic subject in the high schools of Ontario. His publication "The Physiography of Southeastern Ontario" (co-authored by Lyman Chapman) has earned him a place in the history of geography and indeed of earth sciences in Canada. The book chronicles the life of Donald Putnam from his early years in Nova Scotia through is association with the Department of Geography at U of T which spanned more than three decades. The authors have captured in print and photographs the essence of the man fondly remembered by his students as "Putty" The book includes reminiscences from more than thirty of Dr. Putname's former students and colleagues and a list of his published works. The authors of the biography are two of Putnam's former students. Marie (Lustig) Sanderson is currently a research professor with Environment Canada's Adaptation and Impacts Research Group at the U of T. Robert Putnam, Donald's son, is recently retired as Principle of Western Technical Commercial School in Toronto. Back-cover

For more than thirty years and through eleven editions, James Henslin'sDown to Earth Sociologyhas opened new windows onto the social realities that shape our world. Now in its twelfth edition, the most popular anthology in all of sociology includes new articles on our changing world while also retaining its classic, must-read essays. Focusing on social interaction in everyday life,the forty-five selections bring students face-to-face with the twin projects ofcontemporary sociology: understanding the individual's experience of society and analyzing social structure.The twelfth edition's exceptional new readings include selections on the unspoken rules of social interaction, the shocking disparities between upper- and lower-class life, America's changing attitudes toward work and family and the roles they fulfill, and the "McDonaldization" of American society. Together with these essential new articles, the selections by Peter Berger, Herbert Gans, Erving Goffman, Donna Eder, Zella Luria, C. Wright Mills, Deborah Tannen, Barrie Thorne, Sidney Katz, Philip Zimbardo, and many others provide firsthand reporting that gives students a sense of "being there." Henslin also explains basic methods of social research, providing insight into how sociologists explore the social world. The selections inDown to Earth Sociologyhighlight the most significant themes of contemporary sociology, ranging from the sociology of gender, power, politics, sports, and religion, to the contemporary crises of racial tension, crime, rape, poverty, and homelessness.
