Sociocultural Systems

Athabasca University Press


Macrosociology—the study of large-scale social structures and the fundamental principles of social organization—was the style of sociology practiced by the founders of the discipline. Today, the social theories of Karl Marx, Max Weber, Émile Durkheim, and Herbert Spencer (among others) are commonly studied as part of the history of the field, but, although the macrosociological approach that these thinkers advocated is still employed, it no longer dominates the discipline. Instead, sociologists typically adopt a narrower focus, specializing in areas such as social psychology, medicine, religion, or the study of social stratification. Examining the bigger picture is a task often left to public intellectuals.

Sociocultural Systems aims to reinstate macrosciology as the heart of the discipline by demonstrating that both classical and contemporary macrosociologists stand upon common ground. Focusing on the broad issues that concerned the founders, Elwell addresses questions such as: Historically, what factors accounted for the origin, survival, and evolution of sociocultural systems? Why were some societies more technologically advanced than others? What is the origin of capitalism? What factors determine the allocation of goods and services within and among societies? What effects do changes in government and economic institutions have on communities?

Elwell argues that, as evolution does for biology, the macrosociological paradigm offers an analytical strategy that can be used both to guide and prioritize research in all of the myriad specialties within sociology and to lay forth an orderly body of knowledge for students. Clearly articulating important sociological principles, Sociocultural Systems provides a critical understanding of social institutions and issues, while also furnishing a framework for possible solutions to the perennial social crises that are part and parcel of the development of human societies.

Frank W. Elwell is a professor of sociology and the dean of Liberal Arts at Rogers State University, in Oklahoma.He is the author of Macrosociology: Four Modern Theorists, among other works.

Generation Doof

Bastei Lübbe


Niklas glaubt, der Dreisatz wäre eine olympische Disziplin.

Latoya kennt drei skandinavische Länder: Schweden, Holland und Nordpol.

Und Tamara-Michelle hält den Bundestag für einen Feiertag.

Einzelfälle? Mitnichten. Eine ganze Generation scheint zu verblöden. Der Staatsanwalt von nebenan erzieht seine Kinder mit der Spielkonsole. Germanistikstudenten sind der deutschen Sprache nicht mehr mächtig. Eine Karriere als Popstar erscheint dem Bäckerlehrling verlockender als eine solide Ausbildung.

Dieses Buch geht der Frage auf den Grund, wie es wirklich um die Mütter, Väter und Bundeskanzler von morgen steht. Geschrieben haben es zwei Autoren, die mit der Generation Doof per Du sind. Denn es ist ihre eigene.

Comunicación no verbal

Cooltura (Hrsg.) | Music Brokers


Sólo hay una oportunidad de dar una gran primera impresión, y en tan solo siete segundos uno conforma su opinión sobre el otro. Según Catalina Pons, autora de este interesante libro, el 93% de toda la información que transmitimos está compuesta por lenguaje no verbal, es decir, decimos más con el cuerpo que con las palabras. Y solamente cuando las palabras y el cuerpo comunican lo mismo logramos generar credibilidad y confianza. Utilizar el lenguaje corporal en forma adecuada es fundamental para mejorar vínculos, vender o hablar persuasivamente, y para esto es imprescindible conocer este lenguaje y aprender a utilizarlo de la mejor manera.

Allein, alleiner, alleinerziehend

Bastei Entertainment


Das Geld ist immer knapp, der Alltag hektisch und für die Kinder bleibt wenig Zeit. Alleinerziehende befinden sich nicht nur am Rande der Belastbarkeit, auch von Gesellschaft und Politik werden sie benachteiligt: besteuert nahezu wie Singles, auf dem Arbeitsmarkt diskriminiert und von der Gesellschaft missachtet - obwohl ihre Kinder unsere Zukunft sichern. Christine Finke ist alleinerziehende Mutter von drei Kindern und weiß genau, wovon sie spricht. Sie benennt Schwachstellen und Ungerechtigkeiten und sagt, was sich dringend ändern muss, damit die Alltagshelden unserer Gesellschaft nicht länger alleine dastehen.

---

"Finke ist ein rundum lebensnahes, lesenswertes Buch gelungen, das ein breites Echo verdient." Jana Brechlin, Kieler Nachrichten, 26.03.2016
