Community versus Commodity
Community versus Commodity (February 1992)
Tenants and the American City
Stella M. Capek - Author
John I. Gilderbloom - Author

"This is a significant contribution to the literature of rental housing and of tenants as a social group. A major portion of the book is a comparison between Santa Monica where a 'rainbow coalition' of renters, seniors, environmentalists, and liberals put together an extraordinarily progressive government, and its free-enterprise antithesis, Houston. Santa Monica's success in coalition politics led to a strong rent control law, affordable housing,...(Read More)

The Battered Woman and Shelters (February 1992)
The Social Construction of Wife Abuse

Rather, the book focuses on the practical dilemmas and circumstances faced by shelter workers in fulfilling their professional obligations. Loseke offers us a way of seeing shelter work as it is. In doing so, she raises issues that some readers m...(Read More)

This book interprets popular American belief and sentiment about cities, suburbs, and small towns in terms of community ideologies.

Social Entropy Theory
Social Entropy Theory (February 1990)
Kenneth D. Bailey - Author

Social Entropy Theory illuminates the fundamental problems of societal analysis with a nonequilibrium approach, a new frame of reference built upon contemporary macrological principles, including general systems theory and information theory. Social entropy theory, using Shannon's H and the entropy concept, avoids the common (and often artificial) separation of theory and method in sociology. The hallmark of the volume is integration, as se...(Read More)

The Home-Working Family
Betty Beach - Author

What happens when work and family space are shared? Beach examines the lives of home-working families and describes the interaction of work and family life. Detailed focus on the family system demonstrates how space and time are utilized, how spouses and children respond, and how the family may perceive home work as an adaptive effort to integrate work and family life. Beach highlights the often overlooked role of children in contributing to this...(Read More)
 
 
Meaning in Mid-Life Transitions
Meaning in Mid-Life Transitions (January 1987)

"The topic of adult development is one of the important areas of research in behavioral sciences. Sherman has succeeded in bringing the phenomenological perspective to this topic and has shown how structures of meaning form the central theme in mid-life transitions. He writes with ease and clarity, handling difficult concepts in a skillful and sophisticated way, resulting in a richly textured study."--Ann Weick, University of Kansas
