The roots of environmental consciousness : popular tradition and personal experience by Stephen Hussey( )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 1,849 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Annotation Across the globe, environmental issues are increasingly found towards the top of many and diverse political and social agendas. For example, environmental campaigns in western countries today, with their targets both at home and abroad, have a special urgency which draws in an astonishing range of field campaigners, from young militants to rebel aristocrats. This book examines the roots of contemporary environmental consciousness and action in terms of both popular experience and tradition. A wide range of geographical and thematic case-studies explore the myth, tradition and collective memory that shape our environmental thought. Containing a wealth of empirical source material, this book will be invaluable for sociologists and historians alike
The Edwardians : the remaking of British society by Paul Thompson( Book )

55 editions published between 1975 and 2016 in English and held by 1,420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Everyone who lived during the reign of Edward VII was an Edwardian, not merely the rich, the literary or the scandalous. In this classic work, Paul Thompson records the life stories of some five hundred Edwardians, born between 1872 and 1906, in a pioneering use of oral history, which captures a unique record of their times. Domestics, labourers, skilled and semi-skilled workers, professionals and high society men and women describe their work, their families, their politics and their leisure. The book establishes and describes the most important dimensions of social change in the early twentieth century: class structure, gender distinctions, age distinctions - urban and rural - and regional differences. It also evaluates the forces for social change in the period: economic pressures, religious and political conviction, feminism and socialism, patriotism and the war, to reveal how near and how far Edwardian society was to revolution in this time of critical social change. By giving a voice to the contribution and experience of ordinary people, Paul Thompson brings the Edwardian era vividly to life." "This new edition is substantially revised and includes a new chapter, to take into account major historiographical and social changes since the book's publication in 1975. It has new photographs and an up-to-date bibliography."--BOOK JACKET

On living through Soviet Russia( )

12 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,082 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On Living Through Soviet Russia analyses, through personal accounts, how Russian society operated at a day-to-day level. It contrasts the integration of different social groups: the descendants of the pre-revolutionary upper classes, the new industrial working class or religious minorities. It examines in turn the implications of family relationships, working mothers, absent fathers and caretaking grandmothers; patterns of eating together and of housing; the secrecy of sexuality; the suppression of religion; and the small freedoms such as growing vegetables at weekends on a dacha plot. Because of its basis in direct testimonies, the book reveals in a highly readable and direct style the meaning for ordinary men and women of living through those seven decades of state socialism."--BOOK JACKET

Pathways to social class : a qualitative approach to social mobility by Daniel Bertaux( Book )

30 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Up to now, the extensive sociological literature on mobility has been based around the survey method. As a result, we have access to abundant statistical data, but there is little information available to explain how and why people follow particular life paths. To overcome these limitations, the authors have developed an alternative, complementary approach using life stories, case histories of whole families over several generations, or case studies of local communities. Employing the case-study approach does not prevent the identification of structural trends; on the contrary, it allows us to analyse those collective processes through their local effects, restoring the links with the classics of sociological thought

Between generations : family models, myths, and memories by Daniel Bertaux( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 2009 in English and No Linguistic content and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Between Generations is the second volume in the series International Yearbook of Oral History and Life Stories. Like its predecessor, Memory and Totalitarianism, this book concerns powerful memories which continue to shape the present, but in this case in almost all families throughout the world. What is it that parents pass down to their children? How can we understand the mixture of conscious and unconscious models, myths, and material inheritance which are intertwined in both family and individual life stories? The Special Editors of Between Generations, Daniel Bertaux and Paul Thompson, bring together in an innovative perspective contributions from the Americas and Asia as well as from western and eastern Europe. Their approach combines the techniques of life story research with the insights of family therapy in a book of great interest not only to historians and social scientists but also to professionals working with families." "The aim of the International Yearbook is to increase our understanding of the recent past and changing present. It sets out to present and interpret autobiographical testimony, whether in the form of written autobiography, oral history, or life story interviews. Each issue will form a coherent volume focusing on a single theme. Edited by an international group of leading scholars, the Yearbook is genuinely interdisciplinary and intellectually stimulating. It will appeal to students in many areas, including history, sociology, literature, psychology, and anthropology."--Jacket

Gender and memory( Book )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gender and Memory is the fourth volume of the International Yearbook of Oral History and Life Stories. Once again, its theme is a fundamental issue, the shaping of memory by gender. Are the different ways in which men and women are recalled in public and private memory, and also the differences in men's and women's own memories of similar experiences, simply reflections of unequal lives in gendered societies, or are they more deeply rooted? How early in childhood do girls and boys reveal differences in memory? How far does the character of memory change as gender roles evolve? The Special Editors of Gender and Memory, Selma Leydesdorff, Luisa Passerini, and Paul Thompson, draw on original contributions reflecting on the relationships between gender and memory in western and eastern Europe, China, Africa, Australia, the United States and Brazil
