  • Methoden einer Soziologie der Praxisby Franka Schäfer; Anna Daniel; Frank Hillebrandt

    transcript 2015; US$ 25.76

    Obwohl der Empirie in praxisanalytischen Forschungszugängen ein zentraler Stellenwert beigemessen wird, ist die Methodendiskussion in der Soziologie der Praxis bisher zu kurz gekommen. Zwar herrscht Konsens darüber, dass mit einer am Begriff der Praxis ausgerichteten Erkenntnisweise eine Hinwendung zu sich vollziehenden Praktiken einhergeht, aber Antworten... more...

  • Promoting Sustainable Livingby Justyna Karakiewicz; Audrey Yue; Angela Paladino

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.95

    Current images of sustainability are often designed to instil fear and force change, not because we believe in it, but because we fear the consequences of inaction. Moving away from negative portrayals of sustainability, this book identifies the factors that motivate people to aspire towards sustainable living. It introduces the notion of sustainability... more...

  • Telling Talesby Jane Yeadon

    Black & White Publishing 2015; US$ 4.36

    Telling Tales is a nostalgic and beautifully written account of growing up on a small family farm which vividly evokes a way of life that, although so recent, is now all but forgotten.
