  • Realizing Communityby Vered Amit

    Taylor and Francis 2003; US$ 47.95

    'Community' is so overused both in everyday language as well as in scholarly work that it could easily be dismissed as a truism. However, the persistence of the term itself shows that the idea continues to resonate powerfully in our daily lives, ethnographic accounts as well as theoretical analyses. This book returns a timely and concerted anthropological... more...

  • All Riseby Robert Fuller

    Berrett-Koehler Publishers 2006; US$ 22.95

    In his groundbreaking book Somebodies and Nobodies, Robert Fuller identified a form of domination that everyone has experienced but few dare to protest: rankism, abuse of the power inherent in rank to exploit and humiliate someone of lower rank. It plays a role in just about every form of social oppressionÑracism, sexism, homophobia, and religious... more...

  • Iron in the Soulby Peter Loizos

    Berghahn Books 2008; US$ 29.95

    In his vivid, lively account of how Greek Cypriot villagers coped with a thirty-year displacement, Peter Loizos follows a group of people whom he encountered as prosperous farmers in 1968, yet found as disoriented refugees when revisiting in 1975. By providing a forty year in-depth perspective unusual in the social sciences, this study yields unconventional... more...

  • Women of the Upper Classby Susan Ostrander

    Temple University Press 2010; US$ 29.95

    In a unique departure from the usual stereotypes, Susan Ostrander gained access to this elite community and interviewed the women in one U.S. region to study their roles, activities, and self-images. Among her conclusions, Ostrander shows that although these women are economically and socially powerful, they are for the most part, unliberated, being... more...

  • Arab Youthby Samir Khalaf; Roseanne Saad Khalaf

    Saqi 2012; US$ 24.78

    In 2011, Arab youth took to the streets in their thousands to demand their freedom. Although it is too early to speculate on the ultimate outcome of the uprisings, one auspicious feature stands out: they reveal the genesis of a new generation sparked by the desire for civil liberties, advocacy for human rights, and participatory democracy. This... more...

  • Stiftung und städtische Gesellschaftby Ralf Lusiardi

    De Gruyter 2000; US$ 91.00

    Stiftungen spielten im Mittelalter eine außerordentliche Rolle bei der Förderung von Kirche und Religion, von Bildung und sozialer Fürsorge. Sie wirkten - gerade in der städtischen Gesellschaft - auf alle Bereiche des menschlichen Lebens ein. Und sie sollten ungeachtet ihrer sonstigen Zwecke immer auch dem Seelenheil der Stifter dienen. Ausgehend von... more...
