  • Our Cultural Agonyby V. Vycinas

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 93.43

    Cultural twilight means cultural disintegration or death. It means cul­ tural agony. Such agony gradually fades into the dawn of tomorrow's culture, just as the twilight of a summer's evening proceeds into the daylight of the forthcoming day. Consequently cultural twilight or agony simul­ taneously is the dawn - the milieu of birth - of future gods.... more...

  • The Application of Cybernetic Analysis to the Study of International Politicsby S.D. Bryen

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 84.63

    This study could not have been written before Professor Karl Deutsch made his great contribution to political science in his book, The Nerves of Govern­ ment. In applying the concepts elaborated in that work to the study of inter­ national politics it has been necessary to interpret and, occasionally, add to the concepts developed by Professor Deutsch.... more...

  • Earth and Godsby V. Vycinas

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 175.87

    Earth and Gods is an attempt to introduce the reader to Heidegger's fully developed philosophy. The title Earth and Gods gives an im­ pression of not being a general study of Heidegger's philosophy. However, this is not true - the earth and the gods are fundamental ontological symbols of his fully developed philosophy, namely, his third and final phase... more...

  • Ethnomusicologyby Jaap Kunst

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 76.94

    This booklet hardly needs a preface; the contents, I think, speak for themselves. It contains a short and carefully brought up to date resume of all that I, as a private University Lecturer in Amsterdam, have tried to teach my pupils. It is intended as a general introduction to ethnomusicology, before going on to the study of the forms of separate... more...

  • The Impact of Personality on Participation Decisions in Surveysby Denise Saßenroth

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2013; US$ 51.65

    Increasing nonresponse rates in surveys are a matter of concern internationally, as low response rates put the quality of survey data into question. The risk of biased data is high if nonrespondents differ significantly from respondents. In arguing that sample persons? personality traits are decisive in survey participation decisions, Denise Saßenroth... more...

  • Lives in Contextby Ardra L. Cole; Gary J. Knowles

    AltaMira Press 2001; US$ 38.99

    The reflexive turn in qualitative research has transformed the process of doing life history research. No longer are research subjects examined through the lens of the all-knowing but supposedly invisible researcher. As Ardra Cole and Gary Knowles point out in this fresh introduction to conducting life history research, the process is now one of mutuality,... more...

  • Market Societyby Don Slater; Fran Tonkiss

    Wiley 2013; US$ 29.95 US$ 25.96

    Market Society provides an original and accessible review of changing conceptions of the market in modern social thought. The book considers markets as social institutions rather than simply formal models, arguing that modern ideas of the market are based on critical notions of social order, social action and social relations. Examining a range of... more...

  • On the Science of Uncertaintyby Franco Ferrarotti

    Lexington Books 2004; US$ 36.99

    Franco Ferrarotti hopes to lead sociologists away from overly reductionistic, technical measurement of their subjects_an approach that has increasingly been problematized by the natural sciences_toward a rediscovery of (auto)biographical materials and the value of the individual. more...

  • Public Sociologyby Ben Agger

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2007; US$ 39.99

    Public Sociology examines the 'discourse' of mainstream journal articles in sociology in order to understand the essentially conservative nature of mainstream sociology. These articles primarily make advances in method, not substance. Drawing from Mills, critical theory and postmodernism, Agger develops a non-positivist version of sociological writing... more...
