The Discovery of Grounded Theory: Strategies for Qualitative Research

Barney G. Glaser & Anselm L. Strauss

The Discovery of Grounded Theory: Strategies for Qualitative Research by Barney G. Glaser & Anselm L. Strauss

Most writing on sociological method has been concerned with how .accurate facts can be obtained and how theory can thereby be more rigorously tested.

Vegetation and Soils: A World Picture

S. R. Eyre

Vegetation and Soils: A World Picture by S. R. Eyre

Vegetation and Soils is an introduction to the study of vegetation and soil distribution. In this accessible work, S. R. Eyre describes the distributions of these two important elements in the landscape. The book progresses regionally, and the land areas of the earth are subdivided according to the distribution of their main vegetation and soil types. The author argues that the nature of the soil is not determined by vegetation any more than it is determined by climate, but the nature of the vegetation always has some bearing on the nature of the soil, and vice versa.

Eyre studies the ways in...

The Ritual Process: Structure and Anti-Structure

Victor Turner

The Ritual Process: Structure and Anti-Structure by Victor Turner

In The Ritual Process: Structure and Anti-Structure, Victor Turner examines rituals of the Ndembu in Zambia and develops his now-famous concept of "Communitas." He characterizes it as an absolute inter-human relation beyond any form of structure.

The Ritual Process has acquired the status of a small classic since these lectures were first published in 1969. Turner demonstrates how the analysis of ritual behavior and symbolism may be used as a key to understanding social structure and processes. He extends Van Gennep's notion of the "liminal phase" of rites of passage to a more general level,...

Tearoom Trade: Impersonal sex in public places

Laud Humphreys

Tearoom Trade: Impersonal sex in public places by Laud Humphreys

"What emerged in this ground-breaking research was a sociological portrait of conservative and tormented lives: married men, family men, conservative men, whose personal proclivities and preferences were powerful enough, institutionally grounded enough, to break through the conventions of social life."
—Sociological Inquiry
Tearoom Trade describes impersonal, anonymous sexual encounters in public restrooms—"tearooms" in the argot—and explores the behavior of men whose closet homosexuality is kept from their family and neighbors.

Thinking about Social Problems: An Introduction to Constructionist Perspectives

Donileen R. Loseke

Thinking about Social Problems: An Introduction to Constructionist Perspectives by Donileen R. Loseke

The new second edition of this distinctive and widely adopted textbook brings into the classroom an overview of how images of social problems can shape not only public policy and social services, but also the ways in which we make sense of ourselves and others. It introduces two primary changes. First, some attention is devoted to the "new social movements" that emphasize social change through identity transformation rather than through structural change. Second, the text now also looks more closely at the importance of emotions in constructing public consciousness of social problems.

The Conditions of Agricultural Growth: The Economics of Agrarin Change under Population Pressure

Ester Boserup

The Conditions of Agricultural Growth: The Economics of Agrarin Change under Population Pressure by Ester Boserup

The Conditions of Agricultural Growth remains a break through in the theory of agricultural development. In linking ethnography with economy, developmental studies reached new heights. Whereas "development" had been seen previously as the transformation of traditional communities by the introduction (or imposition) of new technologies, Boserup argues that changes and improvements occur from within agricultural communities, and that improvements are governed not simply by external interference, but by those communities themselves.

Price Theory

Milton Friedman

Price Theory by Milton FriedmanMilton Friedman??s classic provides the theoretical underpinning for price. Economics, by Friedman??s definition, is not concerned with all economic problems. It is a social science, and is therefore concerned primarily with those economic problems whose solutions involve the cooperation and interaction of different individuals. It is concerned with problems involving a single individual only insofar as the individual??s behavior has implications for or effects upon other individuals.

The Boomerang Age: Transitions to Adulthood in Families

Barbara Mitchell

The Boomerang Age: Transitions to Adulthood in Families by Barbara MitchellDomestic changes are taking place in the lives of young adults in Western industrialized societies.

Among the most prominent changes is the phenomenon of "boomerang kids," young adults returning to the parental home after their initial entrance into the adult world. Mitchell explores the implications of this development in a changing sociocultural, economic, and demographic landscape.
