Becoming modern : individual change in six developing countries by Alex Inkeles( Book )

38 editions published between 1974 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,065 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a valuable and fascinating book valuable because of the findings it presents, fascinating because of the way it presents them. The subject of Becoming Modern is the modernization process in six developing nations (Argentina, Chile, India, Israel, Nigeria, and Bangladesh). The method is to survey about a thousand men, aged 20-30, in each of these lands. The goal is to demonstrate that a modern man, identifiable by his attitudes toward different aspects of life, does indeed exist, and to find out what factors encourage the transformation from traditional to modern.-The New Leader Distributed by Syndetic Solutions, Inc."--Http://external.worldbankimflib.org/uhtbin/cgisirsi/JmVHFWRv6c/JL/18260034/9 (March 2, 2011)

National character : a psycho-social perspective by Alex Inkeles( Book )

20 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seen in modern perspective, the concept of national character poses fundamental problems for social science theory and research: To what extent do conditions of life in a particular society give rise to certain patterns in the personalities of its members? What are the consequences?Alex Inkeles surveys various definitions of national character, tracing developments through the twentieth century. His approach is to examine the regularity of specific personality patterns among individuals in a society. He argues that modal personality may be extremely important in determining which new cultural elements are accepted and which institutional forms persist in a society. Reviewing previous studies, Inkeles canvasses the attitudes and psychological states of different nations in an effort to discover a set of values in the United States. He concludes that, despite recent advances in the field, there is much to be done before we can have a clear picture of the degree of differentiation in the personality structure of modern nations.Until now, there were few formal definitions and discussions on national character and the limits of this field of study. This book will be of great interest to psychologists, sociologists, philosophers, and political theorists."--Provided by publisher
