(P/B) FOUR SOCIOLOGICAL TRADITIONS
Εκδότης: OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3145-0364

The updated version of Collins's critically-acclaimed Three Sociological Traditions, this text presents a concise intellectual history of sociology organized around the development of four classic schools of thought: the conflict tradition of Marx and Weber, the ritual solidarity of Durkheim, the microinteractionist tradition of Mead, Blumer, and Garfinkel, and-new to this edition-the utilitarian/rational choice tradition. Collins, one of the liveliest and most exciting writers in sociology today, traces the intellectual highlights of thes...

(H/B) SUICIDE IN PALESTINE
NARRATIVES OF DESPAIR
Εκδότης: HURST
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0948-0056

This book is the first anthropological study of suicide in the Arab world today. It discusses the effects of life under Israeli occupation on the mental health of young Palestinians, using selected case studies of men and women who have attempted suicide in the West Bank, above all in the city of Ramallah, but also in Jenin. The book is not about martyrs, or those who gain so much media attention by dying for a 'holy cause'; rather it concerns those who wish to die for entirely private reasons. Contrary to what might be expected, fatal sui...

(P/B) AFTER METHOD
MESS IN SOCIAL SCIENCE RESEARCH
Εκδότης: ROUTLEDGE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3707-0688

John Law argues that methods don't just describe social realities but are also involved in creating them. The implications of this argument are highly significant. If this is the case, methods are always political, and it raises the question of what kinds of social realities we want to create. Most current methods look for clarity and precision. It is usually said that only poor research produces messy findings, and the idea that things in the world might be fluid, elusive, or multiple is unthinkable. Law's startling argument is that this ...

Over the past few decades serious reservations have been expressed about the explanatory power of sociological theory and research. In this important book, leading social theorist Peter Hedstroem outlines the foundations of an analytically oriented sociology that seeks to address this criticism. Building on his earlier influential contributions to contemporary debates, Professor Hedstroem argues for a systematic development of sociological theory so that it has the explanatory power and precision to inform sociological research and underst...

I hope other people will read this book as well, especially heterosexuals willing to acknowledge their anxieties about homosexuality. The full exploration of such feelings is a crucial step in gay liberation. But my main aim is to reach those who aren't aware of the rich connections between radical thought and queer sensibility.

This penchant to preserve, though widely observed, is typically ignored or dismissed as a stereotypical gay cliche, even by many gay men themselves.

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0991-0018

Can politics be studied scientifically, and if so, how? Assuming it is impossible to justify values by human reason alone, social science has come to consider an unreflective relativism the only viable basis, not only for its own operations, but for liberal societies more generally. Although the experience of the sixties has made social scientists more sensitive to the importance of values, it has not led to a fundamental reexamination of value relativism, which remains the basis of contemporary social science. Almost three decades after L...

A gifted poet, a women's rights activist, and an expert on moral and natural philosophy, Lucrezia Marinella (1571-1653) was known throughout Italy as the leading female intellectual of her age. Born into a family of Venetian physicians, she was encouraged to study, and, fortunately, she did not share the fate of many of her female contemporaries, who were forced to join convents or were pressured to marry early. Marinella enjoyed a long literary career, writing mainly religious, epic, and pastoral poetry, and biographies of famous women in...

GAY SUBURBIA AND THE GRAMMAR OF SOCIAL IDENTITY

What does it mean to be a gay man living in the suburbs? Do you identify primarily as gay, or suburban, or some combination of the two? For that matter, how does anyone decide what his or her identity is? In this first-ever ethnography of American gay suburbanites, Wayne H. Brekhus demonstrates that who one is depends at least in part on where and when one is. For many urban gay men, being homosexual is key to their identity because they live, work, and socialize in almost exclusively gay circles. Brekhus calls such men "lifestylers" or pe...

The Lesbian Liberation movement (LLM) is the youngest of the many movements in this series, younger even than feminism or the Gay Liberation movement. That is partly because lesbianism was repressed even more strongly and effectively, partly because the specific movement was long overshadowed by the two broader movements to the point where its own agenda was curtailed or concealed. Only over the past few decades has the LLM come into its own, albeit in a relatively small portion of the globe. Outside of North America and Western Europe, le...

(P/B) ZEST FOR LIFE
LESBIANS' EXPERIENCES OF MENOPAUSE
Εκδότης: SPINIFEX
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3796-0005

Zest for Life draws on lesbians' experiences of menopause to highlight how lesbians, particularly at midlife, are invisibilised in society at large. Many writers and researchers have critically analysed the medical construction of menopause, yet even they fail to ask whether the issues are the same for lesbians. Zest for Life includes the voices of lesbians who tell us that despite lesbian invisibility and homophobia, many are resisting current standards that exclude them. The experiences of these women challenge negative, stereotypical vi...

(P/B) NEWS AS ENTERTAINMENT
THE RISE OF GLOBAL INFOTAINMENT
Εκδότης: SAGE PUBLICATIONS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3846-0221

Do 24/7 news networks, ever conscious of their ratings, privilege style and spectacle at the expense of substance?

Detailed and empirically grounded, this first book-length study of infotainment and its globalization explores these questions, and in doing so: - provides a historical appraisal of infotainment - examines the infrastructure for its globalization - looks at coverage of recent wars on television news as high...

(P/B) WHITE BACKLASH AND THE POLITICS OF MULTICULTURALISM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3933-0395

The murder of Stephen Lawrence led to the widest review of institutional racism seen in the UK. Sections of the white working-class communities in south London near to the scene of the murder, however, displayed deep hostility to the equalities and multiculturalist practice of the local state and other agencies. Drawing on extensive ethnographic research, this book relates these phenomena to the 'backlash' to multiculturalism evident during the 1990s in the USA, Australia, Canada, the UK and other European countries. It examines these with...

(P/B) CULTURE AND AGENCY
THE PLACE OF CULTURE IN SOCIAL THEORY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3933-0514

Margaret Archer's Culture and Agency was first published in 1988, and proved a seminal contribution to social theory and the case for the role of culture in sociological thought. Described in Sociological Review as 'a timely and sophisticated treatment', the book showed that the 'problems' of culture and agency, on the one hand, and structure and agency, on the other, could be solved using the same analytical framework. In this revised edition of Culture and Agency, Margaret Archer contextualises her argument in 1990s cultural sociology an...

(P/B) FAKING IT
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3933-0517

This book is about the intrusive fear that we may not be what we appear to be, or worse, that we may be only what we appear to be and nothing more. It is concerned with the worry of being exposed as frauds in our profession, cads in our love lives, as less than virtuously motivated actors when we are being agreeable, charitable, or decent. Why do we so often mistrust the motives of our own deeds, thinking them fake, though the beneficiary of them gives us full credit? Much of this book deals with that self-tormenting self-consciousness. It...

(P/B) HUSBANDS, WIVES AND CONCUBINES
MARRIAGE, FAMILY AND SOCIAL ORDER IN 16TH CENTURY VERONA
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4173-0001

Emlyn Eisenach uses a wide range of sources, including the richly detailed and previously unexplored records of nearly two hundred marriage-related disputes from the bishop's court of Verona, to illuminate family and social relations in early modern northern Italy. Arguing against the common emphasis on the growth of law and government in this period, her study emphasizes the fluidity of the principles that governed marriage and its dissolution, and deepens our understanding of the patriarchal family and its complex relationship with gende...

THE REPUBLIC OF MASS CULTURE
JOURNALISM, FILMMAKING, AND BROADCASTING IN AMERICA SINCE 1941
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4221-0080

This new edition of James L. Baughman's successful book ''The Republic of Mass Culture'' examines the advert of television and the impact it had on established mass media - radio, film, newspapers, and magazines. When television captured the largest share of the mass audience by the late 1950s, rival media were forced to target smaller, subgroup markets with novel content: rock 'n' roll for teenage radio listeners in the 1950s, sexually explicit films that began to appear in the 1960s, and analytical newspaper reporting in the 1970s and 19...
