Modern romance by Aziz Ansari( Book )

32 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 2,275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At some point, every one of us embarks on a journey to find love. We meet people, date, get into and out of relationships, all with the hope of finding someone with whom we share a deep connection. This seems standard now, but it's wildly different from what people did even just decades ago. Single people today have more romantic options than at any point in human history. With technology, our abilities to connect with and sort through these options are staggering. So why are so many people frustrated? Some of our problems are unique to our time: "Why did this guy just text me an emoji of a pizza?" "Should I go out with this girl even though she listed Combos as one of her favorite snack foods? Combos?!" "My girlfriend just got a message from some dude named Nathan. Who's Nathan? Did he just send her a photo of his penis? Should I check just to be sure?" But the transformation of our romantic lives can't be explained by technology alone. In a short period of time, the whole culture of finding love has changed dramatically. A few decades ago, people would find a decent person who lived in their neighborhood. Their families would meet and, after deciding neither party seemed like a murderer, they would get married and soon have a kid, all by the time they were twenty-four. Today, people marry later than ever and spend years of their lives on a quest to find the perfect person, a soul mate. For years, Aziz Ansari has been aiming his comic insight at modern romance, but for this book he decided he needed to take things to another level. He teamed up with NYU sociologist Eric Klinenberg and designed a massive research project, including hundreds of interviews and focus groups conducted everywhere from Tokyo to Buenos Aires to Wichita. They analyzed behavioral data and surveys and created their own online research forum on Reddit, which drew thousands of messages. They enlisted the world's leading social scientists, including Andrew Cherlin, Eli Finkel, Helen Fisher, Sheena Iyengar, Barry Schwartz, Sherry Turkle, and Robb Willer. The result is unlike any social science or humor book we've seen before

And by July 20, over seven hundred people had perished - more than twice the number that died in the Chicago Fire of 1871, twenty times the number of those struck by Hurricane Andrew in 1992 - in the great Chicago heat wave, one of the deadliest in American history."
Fighting for air : the battle to control America's media by Eric Klinenberg( Book )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 1,070 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An investigative work on the corporate takeover of local news and what it means for all Americans. Sociologist Klinenberg takes us into the world of preprogrammed radio shows, empty television news studios, and copycat newspapers to show how corporate ownership and control of local media has remade American political and cultural life. Klinenberg argues that the demise of truly local media stems from the federal government's malign neglect, as the agencies charged with ensuring diversity and open competition have ceded control to the very conglomerates that consistently undermine these values and goals. "Big media" may not be here to stay, however. This book reveals a rising generation of new media activists and citizen journalists--a coalition of liberals and conservatives--who are demanding and even creating the local coverage they need and deserve.--From publisher description

"An eminent sociologist--and coauthor, with Aziz Ansari, of the #1 New York Times bestseller Modern Romance--makes the provocative case that the future of democratic societies rests not only on shared values but also on shared "social infrastructure": the libraries, childcare centers, bookstores, coffee shops, pools, and parks that promote crucial, sometimes life-saving connections between people who might otherwise fail to find common cause"--

The world-famous American actor and comedian Aziz Ansari sets out with sociologist Eric Klinenberg on the educational and very entertaining search for an answer to this question
Palaces for the People : How Social Infrastructure Can Help Fight Inequality, Polarization, and the Decline of Civic Life by Eric Klinenberg( )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An eminent sociologist and bestselling author offers an inspiring blueprint for rebuilding our fractured society We are living in a time of deep divisions. Americans are sorting themselves along racial, religious, and cultural lines, leading to a level of polarization that the country hasn't seen since the Civil War. Pundits and politicians are calling for us to come together, to find common purpose. But how, exactly, can this be done? In Palaces for the People, Eric Klinenberg suggests a way forward. He believes that the future of democratic societies rests not simply on shared values but on shared spaces: the libraries, childcare centers, bookstores, churches, synagogues, and parks where crucial, sometimes life-saving connections, are formed. These are places where people gather and linger, making friends across group lines and strengthening the entire community. Klinenberg calls this the "social infrastructure": When it is strong, neighborhoods flourish; when it is neglected, as it has been in recent years, families and individuals must fend for themselves. Klinenberg takes us around the globe--from a housing complex in Singapore to an arts incubator in Chicago, from a soccer pitch in Queens to an evangelical church in Houston--to show how social infrastructure is helping to solve some of our most pressing challenges: isolation, crime, education, addiction, political polarization, and even climate change. Richly reported, elegantly written, and ultimately uplifting, Palaces for the People urges us to acknowledge the crucial role these spaces play in civic life. Our social infrastructure could be the key to bridging our seemingly unbridgeable divides--and safeguarding democracy
Palaces for the people : how to build a more equal and united society by Eric Klinenberg( Book )

3 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How can we bring people together? [Here], Eric Klinenberg presents a simple but transformative idea for health, happiness, safety and healing our divided, unequal society. Too often we take for granted and neglect our libraries, parks, markets, schools, playgrounds, gardens and communal spaces, but decades of research now shows that these places can have an extraordinary effect on our health and wellbeing and that of society as a whole. Why? Because wherever people cross paths and linger, wherever we gather informally, strike up a conversation and get to know one another, relationships blossom and communities emerge - and where communities are strong, people are safer and more stimulated and lead happier, more active lives. Through uplifting human stories, [the book] shows that, properly designed and maintained, this `social infrastructure' demonstrably increases health, reduces crime, fosters tolerance and stability and, in emergencies, saves lives - more efficiently than any single other strategy yet devised."--Book flap
Dying alone : a social autopsy of the 1995 Chicago heat wave by Eric Klinenberg( )

3 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In July, 1995, Chicago experienced the most proportionately deadly heat disaster in recorded American history: 739 city residents in excess of the norm died and over 4,000 people were hospitalized for heat-related problems during a single week. Although the city climate was unusually dangerous, epidemiologists, public health researchers, and medical scientists have found that the extreme weather does not account for the historic death toll in Chicago. This dissertation, a social autopsy of the heat wave, is a multi-methodological study of both the social conditions that made it possible for so many Chicagoans to die during the week, and of the conditions that make these deaths so easy to overlook, dehumanize, or forget
Reforming food: How trans fats entered and exited the American food system by David Schleifer( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissertation illuminates instances of both change and obduracy by showing that industry actors do not always dominate other institutions, but nor do they passively accede to external pressures. Firms' interests shift iteratively through interaction with activists, scientists, regulators, other businesses and material technologies. Firms may believe studies they sponsor and embrace regulation if they can replace problematic technologies while preserving products' incumbent qualities
