John J. Macionis
has been in the classroom teaching sociology for more than forty years. Born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, John 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 best-seller, Macionis has also written Society: The Basics , the most popular paperback text in the field, now in its fourteenth edition. The full-length Macionis introductory text is Sociology , which is now in its sixteenth edition. He collaborates on international editions of the texts: Society: The Basics, Canadian Edition , Sociology: Canadian Edition , and Sociology: A Global Introduction . All the Macionis texts are available for high school students and in various foreign-language editions.
All the texts are also offered in low-cost electronic editions in the Revel program. These exciting learning materials provide an interactive learning experience. Unlike other authors, John takes personal responsibility for writing all electronic content, just as he authors all the assessment and supplemental materials. John proudly resists the trend toward “outsourcing” such material to non-sociologists.
In addition, Macionis 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 , currently in a sixth edition.

John Macionis recently retired from full-time teaching at Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, where he was Professor and Distinguished Scholar of Sociology. During his long career as Kenyon, he chaired the Sociology Department, directed the college’s multidisciplinary program in humane studies, presided over the campus senate, was president of the college’s faculty, and taught sociology to thousands of students. Kenyon recognized his decades of service by awarding him an honorary doctorate of humane letters in 2013.
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 taught a number of courses, but his favorite classes were always Introduction to Sociology and Social Problems. He continues to enjoy contact with students across the United States and around the world.
John now lives near New York City. In his free time, he enjoys tennis, swimming, hiking, and playing oldies rock-and-roll. Macionis is an environmental activist in the Lake George region of New York’s Adirondack Mountains, working with a number of organizations, including the Lake George Land Conservancy, where he serves as president of the board of trustees.
