  • The General Sociology of Harrison C. Whiteby Dr Reza Azarian

    Palgrave Macmillan 2005; US$ 121.00

    Harrison C. White is one of American sociology's pre-eminent thinkers, yet until now his endeavour to develop a general theoretical perspective on the basis of social network analysis has remained largely unexamined. This book opens out for the first time White's contribution to those interested generally in his social network approach, but daunted... more...

  • Generational Consciousness, Narrative, and Politicsby June Edmunds; Bryan S. Turner

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2002; US$ 32.99

    With the erosion of strong class theory, sociologists have recently started to look at aspects of social stratification other than class. One of the most interesting new areas of investigation is the sociology of generations. more...

  • Globalizationby Zygmunt Bauman

    Wiley 2013; US$ 54.95

    'Globalization' is a word that is currently much in use. This book is an attempt to show that there is far more to globalization than its surface manifestations. Unpacking the social roots and social consequences of globalizing processes, this book disperses some of the mist that surrounds the term. Alongside the emerging planetary dimensions of... more...

  • Go Tweet Yourselfby Janelle Randazza

    F+W Media 2009; US$ 9.95

    Flip Twitter the bird. Tell Facebook to f#@% off. Lose it on LinkedIn. Somewhere between the advent of Facebook and launching Twitter to the masses, the Internet betrayed us. It allowed pages to be viewed by job interviewers, newsfeeds to be flooded by Aunt Julie, and for constant tweets about what color socks that random girl from the study group... more...

  • Groups, representation and democracyby Darren R. Halpin

    Manchester University Press 2010; US$ 95.00

    Whether called pressure groups, NGOs, social movement organisations or organised civil society, the value of ‘groups’ to the policy process, to economic growth, to governance, to political representation and to democracy has always been contested. However, there seems to be a contemporary resurgence in this debate largely centred on their... more...

  • Ian McEwan: Art and Politicsby Pascal Nicklas

    Universitätsverlag Winter 2012; US$ 22.90

    Hauptbeschreibung Ian McEwan's work is paradigmatic for the intricate relationship between art and politics in British fiction. Whereas his early work is more concerned with the family and its perversions, there is a definite politicization after 'The Comfort of Strangers' (1981). The years between McEwan's Venetian novel and 'The Child in Time'... more...

  • In statu nascendiby Tatiana Shchyttsova

    Traugott Bautz 2012; US$ 24.81

    Welche Bedeutung besitzt die intergenerative Differenz für das individuelle und soziale Leben? Wie flexibel sind die Grenzen zwischen Generationen, zwischen dem Jung- und dem Altsein? Und was folgt in lebensweltlicher, ethischer, politischer, pädagogischer Sicht aus der Tatsache, dass der junge wie der alte Mensch auf Andere generativ bezogen ist?... more...

  • Intellektuelle im Exilby Peter Burschel; Alexander Gallus; Markus Völkel

    Wallstein Verlag 2012; US$ 19.08

    Hauptbeschreibung Intellektuelle Diaspora - von der Antike bis in die Gegenwart. Wie verändern der Verlust der Heimat und das Exil die intellektuelle Existenz und deren Wirkungsweise? Die Autoren gehen der Frage nach, inwiefern emigrierte Intellektuelle in ihrem neuen Kontext stärker wahrgenommen werden. Ist ein fremder Intellektueller die Potenzierung... more...

  • Internet & Organizational Transformationby Khalid S. Soliman

    Emerald Group Publishing Limited 2008; US$ 199.00

    Over the past decade, the Internet has opened unprecedented opportunities for exchanging business information.

  • Making Group Work Easyby Steven A. Schiola

    R&L Education 2010; US$ 20.99

    The latest research about improving education shows that when educators work together to examine data, brainstorm strategies, implement those strategies, and check the data again, student achievement rises. These processes are well known and effective. What is often overlooked or taken for granted is the process the educators will use to work with... more...
