  • Conflict and Compromiseby M.M. Farrar

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 91.00

    The historical literature on the first world war has devoted relatively little attention to the Allied blockade of the Central Powers. The few published studies have concentrated either on the blockade's naval aspects or exclusively on the British contribution. Little effort has been made heretofore to distinguish the French role. This study focuses... more...

  • Cluster analysisby E.J. Bynen

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 91.00

    During the last years the number of applications of cluster analysis in the social sciences has increased very rapidly. One of the reasons for this is the growing awareness that the assumption of homogeneity implicit in the application of such techniques as factor analysis and scaling is often violated by social science data; another is the increased... more...

  • Logic and Systemby M. Clark

    Springer Netherlands 2012; US$ 91.00

    This book will examine one of the oldest problems in understanding what Hegel was trying to do. What is the place ofthe Logic in the Hegelian system? That is, how did Hegel see the relation between "pure thought" and its origins or applications in our many forms of experience? A novel approach to this old question has been adopted. This book will study... more...

  • Adjustment After Migrationby F.J.Th. Rutten; J. Ex

    Springer Netherlands 2013; US$ 106.37

    People are not so firmly rooted as they used to be. The greater frequency, at least in the Western world, with which people move house can be seen from the statistics. Many migrate voluntarily, or under compulsion, to build up new existences in other parts of the country or in other parts of the world. The problems which face people who are obliged... more...

  • Ethnomethodology's Programby Harold Garfinkel; Anne Warfield Rawls

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2002; US$ 45.00

    Ethnomethodology's Program: Working out Durkheim's Aphorism emphasizes Garfinkel's insistence that his position focuses on fundamental sociological issues—and that interpretations of his position as indifferent to sociology have been misunderstandings. Durkheim's aphorism states that the concreteness of social facts is sociology's most fundamental... more...

  • The Psychology and Economics of Happinessby Lok Sang Ho

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 54.95

    Much attention has been given to the economics of everyday life, which typically applies economic principles to the analysis of the different choices that people face under different situations. Yet there are hardly any books on the economics of life—an economics that takes the finite lifespan as the starting point and that looks at how one can maximize... more...

  • Organisation und Strukturationby Jörg Sydow; Carsten Wirth

    Springer Fachmedien Wiesbaden 2013; US$ 29.79

    ​Der Band führt in die von Anthony Giddens entwickelte Strukturationstheorie ein, die in zunehmendem Maße für die Analyse von Organisationen und interorganisationalen Netzwerken Verwendung findet. Nach einer Einführung in die zentralen Konzepte der Theorie werden diese am Beispiel von Fragen des strategischen Managements, der Steuerung und des Controlling,... more...

  • Arbeitsmarktsoziologieby Martin Abraham; Thomas Hinz

    VS Verlag für Sozialwissenschaften 2015; US$ 36.74

    Der rituelle monatliche Blick auf die Arbeitslosenzahlen aus Nürnberg verdeut­ licht: Was auf dem Arbeitsmarkt geschieht, ist in der Wahrnehmung der Öffent­ lichkeit für die gesamte Gesellschaft wie für individuelle Schicksale gleicher­ maßen von herausragender Bedeutung. Aber nicht nur krisenhafte Phänomene wie die anhaltend hohe Arbeitslosigkeit,... more...

  • Radical Interactionism on the Riseby Lonnie Athens; Norman K. Denzin

    Emerald Group Publishing Limited 2013; US$ 138.99

    This issue of the Blue Ribbon Papers is must reading for anyone wishing to remain up- to- date on the latest breaking developments in interactionism which could potentially change forever both the history of this venerated American school of thought and, in turn, American sociological theory. more...
