The Palgrave Handbook of Disciplinary and Regional Approaches to Peace

Author: Oliver Richmond,Sandra Pogodda,Jasmin Ramovic

Publisher: Springer

ISBN: 1137407611

Category: Political Science

In this handbook, a diverse range of leading scholars consider the social, cultural, economic, political, and developmental underpinnings of peace. This handbook is a much-needed response to the failures of contemporary peacebuilding missions and narrow disciplinary debates, both of which have outlined the need for more interdisciplinary work in International Relations and Peace and Conflict studies. Scholars, students, and policymakers are often disillusioned with universalist and northern-dominated approaches, and a better understanding of the variations of peace and its building blocks, across different regions, is required. Collectively, these chapters promote a more differentiated notion of peace, employing comparative analysis to explain how peace is debated and contested.

The distinctive emphasis on social policy found in this text shows students how to use the sociological imagination in examining such public policy issues as sexual harassment, the AIDS crisis, welfare reform, the death penalty, and privacy and censorship in an electronic age." – Richard T.

Richard Schaefer's Sociology Matters is a very concise introduction to the discipline of sociology. Its straightforward style, streamlined design, and highly focused coverage make it the perfect short, affordable, introductory text for instructors who use a variety of materials in their course. Sociology Matters helps students understand and connect to the topics it covers by answering the question "How does sociology matter?" "After more than 30 years of teaching sociology to students in colleges, adult education programs, nursing programs, an overseas program based in London, and even a maximum-security prison, I am firmly convinced that the discipline can play a valuable role in teaching critical thinking skills. Sociology can help students to better understand the workings of their own lives as well as of their society and other cultures." –Richard T. Schaefer

Erving Goffman - "Interaction order"

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Klassiker und Theorierichtungen, Note: 1,3, Rheinisch-Westfalische Technische Hochschule Aachen (Institut fur Soziologie), 4 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: -, Abstract: Erving Goffman gehort heute zu den popularsten und meist gelesenen Soziologen unserer Zeit. Seine Bucher wurden in zahlreiche Sprachen ubersetzt, und mehrfach mit Preisen ausgezeichnet (vgl. Hettlage/Lenz 1991:25). Goffmans Interesse galt nicht dem Entwurf einer umfassenden makrosoziologischen Theorie, sondern vielmehr dem kleinraumigen Bereich der face-to-face-Interaktion, und somit dem Mikrokosmos (vgl. Hettlage/Lenz 1991:8-9). Nicht zuletzt ging es ihm um die Etablierung des Themas face-to-face-Interaktion als einen eigenstandigen Forschungsgegenstand. Dennoch wird Goffman aus der Perspektive des soziologischen Wissenschaftsbetriebs auch heute noch haufig als Aussenseiter wahrgenommen, dessen gesamtes Forschungsprogramm und einzelnen Konzepte als kaum einheitlich und perspektivenreich betrachtet werden, und der den Zugang zu den Makro-Perspektiven seines Faches nie gefunden habe (vgl. Hettlage/Lenz 1991:9). Neben der Darstellung seines Forschungsprogramms mochte ich untersuchen, ob diese Einschatzung zutreffend ist, oder sein Beitrag fur die Entwicklung der Soziologie unterschatzt wird, was auf zahlreiche merkwurdige Details und Beispiele in seinen Werken, eines zu guten Stils" (Hettlage/Lenz 1991:9), stark variierenden Begriffsverwendungen und der Person Goffman an sich zuruck zu fuhren sein konnte. Zunachst werde ich die grundlegenden Lebensdaten Goffmans darstellen. Dann mochte ich einen ersten Einblick in Goffmans Forschungsprogramm ermoglichen, indem ich eine Ubersicht uber die wesentlichen Inhalte erstelle. Eine Beschreibung seiner wissenschaftlichen Vorgehensweise wird nutzlich sein, um die erwahnten Details und Beispiele, im Rahmen der Untersuchung von face-to-face-Interaktionen, als zweck

Crook County

Racism and Injustice in America's Largest Criminal Court

Author: Nicole Gonzalez Van Cleve

Publisher: Stanford Law Books

ISBN: 9781503602786

Category: Law

Page: 272

View: 2086

NAACP Image Award Nominee for an Outstanding Literary Work from a debut author. Winner of the 2017 Prose Award for Excellence in Social Sciences and the 2017 Prose Category Award for Law and Legal Studies, sponsored by the Professional and Scholarly Publishing Division, Association of American Publishers. Silver Medal from the Independent Publisher Book Awards (Current Events/Social Issues category). Americans are slowly waking up to the dire effects of racial profiling, police brutality, and mass incarceration, especially in disadvantaged neighborhoods and communities of color. The criminal courts are the crucial gateway between police action on the street and the processing of primarily black and Latino defendants into jails and prisons. And yet the courts, often portrayed as sacred, impartial institutions, have remained shrouded in secrecy, with the majority of Americans kept in the dark about how they function internally. Crook County bursts open the courthouse doors and enters the hallways, courtrooms, judges' chambers, and attorneys' offices to reveal a world of punishment determined by race, not offense. Nicole Gonzalez Van Cleve spent ten years working in and investigating the largest criminal courthouse in the country, Chicago-Cook County, and based on over 1,000 hours of observation, she takes readers inside our so-called halls of justice to witness the types of everyday racial abuses that fester within the courts, often in plain sight. We watch white courtroom professionals classify and deliberate on the fates of mostly black and Latino defendants while racial abuse and due process violations are encouraged and even seen as justified. Judges fall asleep on the bench. Prosecutors hang out like frat boys in the judges' chambers while the fates of defendants hang in the balance. Public defenders make choices about which defendants they will try to "save" and which they will sacrifice. Sheriff's officers cruelly mock and abuse defendants' family members. Crook County's powerful and at times devastating narratives reveal startling truths about a legal culture steeped in racial abuse. Defendants find themselves thrust into a pernicious legal world where courtroom actors live and breathe racism while simultaneously committing themselves to a colorblind ideal. Gonzalez Van Cleve urges all citizens to take a closer look at the way we do justice in America and to hold our arbiters of justice accountable to the highest standards of equality.

Aus den Ruinen des Empires

Die Revolte gegen den Westen und der Wiederaufstieg Asiens

Author: Pankaj Mishra

Publisher: S. Fischer Verlag

Asiens Antwort auf den westlichen Imperialismus: »Provokant, beschämend und überzeugend« The Times Nachdem die letzten Erben des Mogul-Reiches getötet und der Sommerpalast in Peking zerstört war, schien die asiatische Welt vom Westen besiegt. Erstmals erzählt der Essayist und Schriftsteller Pankaj Mishra, wie in dieser Situation Intellektuelle in Indien, China und Afghanistan eine Fülle an Ideen entwickelten, die zur Grundlage für ein neues Asien wurden. Sie waren es, die Mao und Gandhi inspirierten und neue Strömungen des Islam anregten. Von hier aus nahmen die verschiedenen Länder ihren jeweiligen Weg in die Moderne. Unterhaltsam und eindringlich schildert Pankaj Mishra die Entstehung des antikolonialen Denkens und seine Folgen. Ein Buch, das einen völlig neuen Blick auf die Geschichte der Welt bietet und den Schlüssel liefert, um das heutige Asien zu verstehen. »Brillant. Mishra spiegelt den tradierten westlichen Blick auf Asien zurück. Moderne Geschichte, wie sie die Mehrheit der Weltbevölkerung erfahren hat - von der Türkei bis China. Großartig.« Orhan Pamuk »Lebendig ... fesselnd ... ›Aus den Ruinen des Empires‹ hat die Kraft, nicht nur zu belehren, sondern zu schockieren.« Mark Mazower, Financial Times

Zu Recht gilt Max Weber (1864–1920) heute international als einer der einflussreichsten Denker des 20. Jahrhunderts. Seine Werke zählen in den Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften zu den Schlüsseltexten der wissenschaftlichen Ausbildung. Dirk Kaesler zeichnet knapp und anschaulich die entscheidenden Stationen seines Lebens und Wirkens nach und macht deutlich, wie eng sowohl die Themen der wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten Webers als auch deren Ergebnisse mit zeitgenössischen und familienbiographischen Zusammenhängen verflochten sind.
