The Affluent worker: industrial attitudes and behaviour by John H Goldthorpe( Book )

44 editions published between 1968 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The affluent workers studied in this book, originally published in 1968, were employees of three major industrial concerns sited in Luton at the time. The three firms were selected as being amongst Luton's best-paying employers and also on account of their advanced personnel and labour relations policies. This choice enabled comparisons to be made between workers engaged in very different types of production system. On the basis of material from interviews and other data, the authors examine in detail workers' experience of their industrial jobs, their relations with workmates, and the nature of their attachment both to the organizations which employ them and to their trade unions. This study forms part of a larger project which was aimed at testing empirically the thesis, which was most prevalent 1968, that of the progressive assimilation of manual workers and their families into the pattern of middle class social life

The constant flux : a study of class mobility in industrial societies by Robert Erikson( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 1993 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of social mobility within the developing class structures of modern industrial societies based on a unique data-set constructed by Robert Erikson and John Goldthorpe. The focus is on the experience of European nations--western and eastern--in the period of the 'long boom' following the Second World War; but the book also devotes separate chapters to examining the experience of the USA, Australia, and Japan. The authors combine historical and statistical approaches in their analysis of both trends in mobility and of cross-national similarities and differences. They show that wide variation at the level of actually observed mobility coexists with a surprising degree of constancy and commonality in underlying patterns of social fluidity. The empirical results of their study serve as the basis for a critical re-examination of current theories of mobility and for raising more general issues of the proper concerns and methods of comparative macro-sociology
On sociology : numbers, narratives, and the integration of research and theory by John H Goldthorpe( Book )

20 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book brings together a collection of essays all written in the last ten years by one of the best-known and influential British sociologist. The essays are concerned with the intellectual discovery of contemporary sociology. The collection begins with essays critical of various current tendencies in sociology and moved on to essays that outline a programme for a new sociological mainstream. The essays combine the established strengths of quantitative sociology with recent developments in the theory of social action, especially rational action theory. It then turns to essays illustrative of this style of sociology. The book deals with substantive topics in the field of social stratification. The final essay takes up some of the relevant issues in the history of sociology

Social mobility and education in Britain : research, politics, and policy by Erzsébet Bukodi( )

11 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Building upon extensive research into modern British society, this book traces out trends in social mobility and their relation to educational inequalities, with surprising results. Contrary to what is widely supposed, Bukodi and Goldthorpe's findings show there has been no overall decline in social mobility – though downward mobility is tending to rise and upward mobility to fall - and Britain is not a distinctively low mobility society. However, the inequalities of mobility chances among individuals, in relation to their social origins, have not been reduced and remain in some respects extreme. Exposing the widespread misconceptions that prevail in political and policy circles, this book shows that educational policy alone cannot break the link between inequality of condition and inequality of opportunity. It will appeal to students, researchers, policy makers, and anyone interested in the issues surrounding social inequality, social mobility and education. --

Die Analyse sozialer Ungleichheit Kontinuität, Erneuerung, Innovation by Hermann Strasser( Book )

9 editions published in 1985 in German and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sonst so unterschiedl iche Autoren wie Thomas S. Kuhn, Paul Feyerabend, Robert K. Merton und Gerald Holton haben uns darauf aufmerksam gemacht, daß in der Wissenschaftsgeschichte nicht Tradition, auch nicht Kontinuität und schon gar ni cht Fol geri chti gkeit das Regi ment führen. Das Geschehen, schreibt Merton in Auf den Schultern von Riesen, "ist stets auf dem Ab sprung, verwei st naCliVorne, ruckwartSOcleraur-di e Sei te" und ni cht ohne Grund nimmt in . . seiner Wissenschaftsgeschichte das Interesse an Vorweg-, Wiederauf- und Ubernahmen, d. h. an Antizipation, Tradition und Plagiat einen so breiten Raum ein. Die hier vorgeschlagenen Einteilungskriterien von Innovation, Erneuerung und Kontinuität entsprechen weder genau den Merton'schen Kategorien, noch stehen sie in einer direkten Beziehung zu den zeitlichen Dimensionen von Zukunft, Gegenwart und Vergangenheit. Zur Rechtfertigung unserer Einteilungskriterien möchten wir auch nicht Mertons Metapher vom Zwergen bemühen, der, auf den Schultern von Riesen stehend, weiter sehen kann als der Riese. Denn dieses Bild hat seine Tücken, erhebt sich doch die Frage, wie der Zwerg auf die Schultern des Riesen gelangt oder was mit ihm passiert, wenn - wie offenbar in der Geschichte der Wissenschaft oft geschehen - der Riese ins Wanken gerät oder gar stürzt. Als wissenschaftlicher Prozeß läßt sich die Analyse sozialer Ungleichheit, wie sie sich im gegenwärtigen Forschungsstand widerspiegelt, am besten durch die Gleichzeitigkeit und den Wechsel von Phasen der Kontinuität, Erneuerung und Innovation verständlich machen. Um Wissenschaft betreiben und verstehen zu können, sind alle drei Phasen gleichermaßen notwendig
The affluent worker in the class structure by John H Goldthorpe( Book )

4 editions published between 1969 and 1971 in English and held by 47 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This final book in the Affluent Worker series contains the findings and conclusions on the issues the research was specifically designed to investigate -the extent of working class embourgeoisement. The thesis of embourgeoisement is examined in the several contexts of work, sociability, social aspirations and imagery, and so on. At all these points it is called into question empirically and conceptually. In this volume which brings the project to an end, the authors also take up again the broad question of class and politics out of which the investigation originally sprang."Our conclusion must be that if the working class does in the long term become no more than one stratum within a sytem of "classless inegalitarianism", offering no basis for or response to radical initiatives, then this situation will not be adequately explained either as an inevitable outcome of the evolution of industrialism or as reflecting the ability of neocapitalism to contain the consequences of its changing infrastructure by means of mass social-psychological manipulation. It will be to some degree also attributable to the fact that the political leaders of the working class chose this future for it."
