Two worlds of childhood: U.S. and U.S.S.R by Urie Bronfenbrenner( Book )

129 editions published between 1970 and 1991 in 14 languages and held by 2,320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on cross-cultural research data and related findings, this book presents a comparative examination of the socialization process in the Soviet Union and the United States, and relates the findings to the present and future societies at large. It begins with descriptive facts, examines their implications in light of data and theory from the social sciences, and ends with a blueprint for change within our own society. The socialization process is analyzed as it occurs in a series of social contexts beginning with the family, then proceeding to other settings such as preschool centers, children's groups, classrooms, neighborhoods, communities, and the nation as a whole. In terms of socialization, the major difference between the two cultures lies in the contrast between a collective centered and family-centered system of child rearing. The first chapters consider the role of family and collective settings in the Soviet Union and their psychological implications. The remainder of the book considers American approaches to socialization, identifying and describing the major environmental influences on the behavior and development of children, and their increasing importance. The author concludes that the rather different Soviet approach to socialization has significance for our own problems. (Author/JLB)

The state of Americans : this generation and the next by Urie Bronfenbrenner( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As they point out, politicians and the media typically focus on single issues, positing simplistic solutions for complex problems - crime, for example - solutions that can't work because they don't take into account how other problems affect crime rates. In this book, the authors provide not only the relevant facts and figures, they also highlight the interrelationships among these factors. They show, for example, how education and changing family structure affect poverty rates and how all three might affect the level of crime in America. Finally, this is the first book that doesn't just show us what the current data is - it also shows how today's economic and social trends will serve to determine the fate of future generations. Anyone who wants the real facts on how Americans are faring today and what we can expect in the future will want this book
Examining lives in context : perspectives on the ecology of human development by Phyllis Moen( Book )

17 editions published between 1995 and 2001 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This groundbreaking book extends the work of Urie Bronfenbrenner whom Melvin Kohn described as "the quintessential person for spurring psychologists to ... realize that interpersonal relationships are embedded in the larger social structures of community, society, economics, and politics." In Examining Lives in Context, over two dozen distinguished scholars show how Bronfenbrenner's ecological theory and research led them to focus their own work on problems crucial to "real life"--The complex, rapidly changing world that challenges researchers to design inquiries in often dramatic new ways. By taking into account the importance of time, place, process, and life course, the interdisciplinary contributors to this volume forge a new path in previously uncharted territory in human development
