The second edition of Ken Browne′s highly successful Introducing Sociology for AS–level provides in–depth and up–to–date coverage of the complete specification for AQA AS–level sociology. The first edition of this book was widely praised for its comprehensive coverage, and student–friendly style. In this second edition, all of the chapters have been revised to include new studies, reports and statistics. Key sociological terms are now systematically highlighted all the way through the book, and included in a comprehensive glossary, with fresh questions and activities added to develop and test students′ understanding further. Fuller consideration of issues of identity has been given throughout the text. More detailed advice has been provided on coursework, including a top–mark example to show students exactly what they have to do to achieve the highest grades. What′s more, two authentic exam questions are now included on every topic. Pitched at exactly the right level for AS sociology, the book provides all the tools necessary to help students achieve top grades, and a sound basis for progression to A2. A host of cartoons, photographs, graphs, tables, and spider diagrams help to enliven the text, as well as reinforcing key issues. Web sites and web–based activities are included throughout, encouraging students to engage with the most recent social changes, and developments in sociology. Although it assumes no previous knowledge of sociology, its dedicated and in–depth coverage of all the AQA′s AS topics provides a useful reference tool for the synoptic elements at A2. The second edition of Introducing Sociology for AS Level combines sociological rigour and accessibility in a way unrivalled by any other book at this level. It will be an invaluable resource to anyone following the AQA specifications.

The Myth of Social Action

Author: Colin Campbell

Publisher: Cambridge University Press

Category: Social Science

The Myth of Social Action, first published in 1996, is a powerful critique of the sociology of the time and a call to reject the prevailing orthodoxy. Arguing that sociological theory had lost its way, Colin Campbell mounts a case for a new 'dynamic interpretivism' a perspective on human conduct which is more inkeeping with the spirit of traditional Weberian action theory. Discussing and dismissing one by one the main arguments of those who reject individualistic action theory, he demonstrates that this has been wrongly rejected in favour of the interactional, social situationalist approach now dominating sociological thought.

»Um „Zehn Gründe...“ zu lesen, reicht ein einziger Grund: Jaron Lanier. Am wichtigsten Mahner vor Datenmissbrauch, Social-Media-Verdummung und der fatalen Umsonst-Mentalität im Netz führt in diesen Tagen kein Weg vorbei.« Frank Schätzing Jaron Lanier, Tech-Guru und Vordenker des Internets, liefert zehn bestechende Gründe, warum wir mit Social Media Schluss machen müssen. Facebook, Google & Co. überwachen uns, manipulieren unser Verhalten, machen Politik unmöglich und uns zu ekligen, rechthaberischen Menschen. Social Media ist ein allgegenwärtiger Käfig geworden, dem wir nicht entfliehen können. Lanier hat ein aufrüttelndes Buch geschrieben, das seine Erkenntnisse als Insider des Silicon Valleys wiedergibt und dazu anregt, das eigenen Verhalten in den sozialen Netzwerken zu überdenken. Wenn wir den Kampf mit dem Wahnsinn unserer Zeit nicht verlieren wollen, bleibt uns nur eine Möglichkeit: Löschen wir all unsere Accounts! Ein Buch, das jeder lesen muss, der sich im Netz bewegt! »Ein unglaublich gutes, dringendes und wichtiges Buch« Zadie Smith

Der Sammelband publiziert die Beiträge einer interdisziplinären Konferenz, die im April 2013 den Untergang Jugoslawiens zum Thema hatte. GeisteswissenschaftlerInnen, welche einerseits biographisch in die postjugoslawischen Kriege involviert sind, andererseits sich schon bald über zwei Jahrzehnte mit spezifischen theoretischen Modellen und wissenschaftlichem Anspruch mit der jugoslawischen Problematik auseinandergesetzt haben, fokussieren aus ihrer jeweils spezifischen theoretischen Warte die Ereignisse und deren problematische Diskursivierung. Dabei stehen diskurs-, feld und systemtheoretische, aber auch raumnarratologische, bildkritische und historiographische Ansätze im Vordergrund.
