John J. Macionis (pronounced "ma-SHOW-nis") was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He earned a bachelor's degree from Cornell University and a doctorate in sociology from the University of Pennsylvania.
His publications are wide-ranging, focusing on community life in the United States, interpersonal intimacy in families, effective teaching, humor, new information technology, and the importance of global education. In addition to authoring this #1 best-seller, Macionis has also written "Society: The Basics," the #1 most popular paperback text in the field, now in its ninth edition. He collaborates on international editions of the texts: "Sociology: Canadian Edition; Society: The Basics, Canadian Edition; "and "Sociology: A Global Introduction." "Sociology" is also available for high school students and in various foreign-language editions. In addition, Macionis and Nijole V. Benokraitis have edited the best-selling anthology "Seeing Ourselves: Classic, Contemporary, and Cross-Cultural Readings in Sociology," also available in a Canadian edition. Macionis and Vincent Parrillo have written the leading urban studies text, "Cities and Urban "Life (Prentice Hall). Macionis's most recent textbook is "Social Problems "(Prentice Hall), now in its third edition and the leading book in this field,"" The latest on all the Macionis textbooks, as well as information and dozens of Internet links of interest to students and faculty in sociology, are found at the author's personal Web site: http: //www.macionis.com or http: //www.TheSociologyPage.com. Additional information, instructor resources, and online student study guides for the texts are found at the Prentice Hall site: http: //www.prenhall.com/macionis. John Macionis is Professor and Distinguished Scholar of Sociology at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, where he has taught for almost thirty years. During that time, he has chaired the Sociology Department, directed the college's multidisciplinary program in humane studies, presided over the campus senate and the college's faculty, and taught sociology to thousands of students. In 2002, the American Sociological Association presented Macionis with the Award for Distinguished Contributions to Teaching, citing his innovative use of global material as well as the introduction of new teaching technology in his textbooks. Professor Macionis has been active in academic programs in other countries, having traveled to some fifty nations. He writes, "I am an ambitious traveler, eager to learn and, through the texts, to share much of what I discover with students, many of whom know little about the rest of the world. For me, traveling and writing are all dimensions of teaching. First, and foremost, I am a teacher-a passion for teaching animates everything I do." At Kenyon, Macionis teaches a number of courses, but his favorite class is Introduction to Sociology, which he offers every semester. He enjoys extensive contact with students and invites everyone enrolled in each of his classes to enjoy a home-cooked meal. The Macionis family-John, Amy, and children McLean and Whitney-live on a farm in rural Ohio. In his free time, Macionis enjoys tennis, swimming, hiking, and playing oldies rock-and-roll (he recently released his first CD). Macionis is as an environmental activist in the Lake George region of New York's Adirondack Mountains, working with a number oforganizations, including the Lake George Land Conservancy, where he serves as president of the board of trustees.
