The community in America by Roland Leslie Warren( Book )

Während die kritische Diskussion über die Folgen von zweieinhalb Jahrzehnten Woh nungsbau und die Erfordernisse des künftigen Städtebaus in der Bundesrepublik gerade erst richtig in Gang zu kommen scheint; während die Ausbildung zur Stadt und Regionalplanung durch die Einrichtung eigener Studiengänge soeben beginnt und die Planungsverfahren sich rapide der rationalen Instrumentarien der ökonometrie und der Datenverarbeitung bemächtigen: in diesem Zeitpunkt mag es auf den ersten Blick anachronistisch erscheinen, wenn dem deutschen Interessenten eine Studie über die amerikanische Gemeinde als besonders aktuell präsentiert wird. Sind nicht die Verhältnisse des Bau-und Planungswesens, des Boden-und Baumarktes in den Ver einigten Staaten und in Westdeutschland derart unterschiedlich, daß jeder Vergleich irreführen muß? Liegen nicht die sozialen Probleme der westdeutschen Entwicklung eher bei den Fragen nach der Struktur der großstädtischen Ballungen, nach der Sa nierung alter Baubestände als in der Untersuchung örtlicher Gemeinwesen, deren Ausprägung gerade in den amerikanischen Städten infolge der Einwanderungsge schichte und der liberal-kapitalistischen Gesellschaftsorganisation ganz anders ausfallen muß als hier? Solche Fragen sind berechtigt, berühren aber die vorliegende Studie WaTrens nicht. Diese stößt vielmehr in eine Lücke der bisherigen überlegungen vor und sucht Ge dankengänge untereinander zu verknüpfen, die im nordamerikanischen wie im west deutschen Schrifttum - wenngleich auf unterschiedliche Weise - voneinander isoliert verfolgt werden. Es ist kein Zufall, daß ihre Synthese eher dort als hier in Angriff genommen wurde

Families in the energy crisis : impacts and implications for theory and policy by Robert Perlman( Book )

10 editions published in 1977 in English and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book analyzes the effects of the energy crisis of 1973-74 and 1977 on 1440 American families in three metropolitan areas. An analytic framework was developed for interpreting the outcomes and the processes by which families responded to the crisis. This book presents a conceptual framework for tracing the interactions between large-scale events and families, and it analyses the responses of American families to the energy crisis and the impacts of their responses on other economic and social units. The analytical framework treats family adjustments to a crisis as: (1) a series of processes extending over time; and (2) changes in the performance of family tasks for its own members and for other social systems. Chapter titles indicating contents are: (1) Introduction; (2) An Analytical Model of Families and Crises; (3) The Energy Crisis Unfolds in Hartford, Mobile, and Salem; (4) 1,440 Families React; (5) Family Adjustments; (6) Attrition, Repercussions, and Energy Conservation; (7) Different Families, Different Burdens; (8) Three Years Later-Crisis ii; (9) Energy Conservation and Public Policy; and (10) Focus on Families. Appendices include: (1) Survey Design and Implementation; (2) Follow-Up Mail Survey in September 1975; (3) The Validation Study; and (4) Socioeconomic Differences Among Families in Brandies Sample.
