Most widely held works by Barrington Moore
Social origins of dictatorship and democracy : lord and peasant in the making of the modern world by Barrington Moore( Book )
158 editions published between 1966 and 2010 in 13 languages and held by 2,860 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Social Origins of Dictatorship and Democracy is a comparative survey of some of what Moore considers the major/most indicative world economies as they evolved out of pre-modern political systems into industrialism. As the title suggests, Moore is not ultimately concerned with explaining economic development so much as exploring why modes of development produced different political forms that managed the transition to industrialism and modernization. Why did one society modernize into a "relatively free," democratic society (by which Moore means England) while others metamorphosed into fascist or communist states? His core thesis is that in each country, the relationship between the landlord class and the peasants was a primary influence on the ultimate form of government the society arrived at upon arrival in its modern age

Moral purity and persecution in history by Barrington Moore( Book )
11 editions published between 2000 and 2002 in English and Italian and held by 978 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Moore takes up tools of historical comparison to investigate why groups of people kill and torture each other. His answer is arrestingly simple: people persecute those whom they perceive as polluting due to their "impure" religious, political, or economic ideas." "Moore's provocative conclusion is that monotheism - with its monopoly on virtue and failure to provide supernatural scapegoats - is responsible for some of the most virulent forms of intolerance and is a major cause of human nastiness and suffering. Moore does not say that the monotheist tradition was the primary source of Nazism, Stalinism, Maoism, violent Hindu fundamentalism or ethnic cleansing in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia, but he does identify it as an indispensable cause because it justified, encouraged, and spread vindictive persecution throughout the world."--Jacket

Moral aspects of economic growth, and other essays by Barrington Moore( Book )
11 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and Italian and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Barrington Moore, Jr., one of the most distinguished thinkers in critical theory and historical sociology, has long been concerned with the prospects for freedom and decency in industrial society. The product of decades of reflection on issues of authority, inequality, and injustice, this volume analyzes fluctuating moral beliefs and behavior in political and economic affairs at different points in history, from the early Middle Ages in England to the prospects for liberalism under twentieth-century Soviet socialism. The social sources of antisocial behavior; principles of social inequality; and the origins, enemies, and possibilities of rational discussion in public affairs - these are among the topics Moore considers as he seeks to uncover the historical causes of some accepted forms of morality and to assess their social consequences
