Social theory : the multicultural and classic readings by Charles C Lemert( Book )

53 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over twenty years Charles Lemert has scoured the canon of social theory, pulling together long-established classics as well as engaging modern writing to create an essential collection of social theory from the nineteenth century to the present. In this heavily revised fifth edition, Lemert reevaluates the received canon and reasserts this iconic text's place in the standard curriculum. Classic, essential texts from thinkers like Marx and Du Bois remain; other key writers, like John Dewey and Raewyn Connell, are presented in a new light; and leading figures in the discussion of twenty-first-century society, such as Elijah Anderson, Bruno Latour, and Achille Mbembe, are anthologized here for the first time. In addition to classic and multicultural readings, the fnew fifth edition introduces a discussion of global social theory as well as important new and evolving topics like mobile technologies, the virtual realm, masculinities, and bre life. New in this edition, timelines are included to visually represent readings against the backdrop of significant events in social and world history. With more than 100 authors, thinkers, and scholars represented, the fifth edition of Social Theory is an essential component of any social theory course."--Page [4] of cover

There is Larry, a high-tech executive 'emotionally wrecked by success'; there is Ruth, a married woman in her late fifties, typing real-time erotica in cyberspace; there is Norman, a recovering drug addict infected with HIV, reinventing himself by accepting the deadly worlds for what they are; and Caoimhe and Annie, two little girls only beginning to explore the disorientating effects of the new individualism."--Jacket

Durkheim's ghosts : cultural logics and social things by Charles C Lemert( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Durkheim's Ghosts is a fascinating presentation of the tradition of social theory influenced by Emile Durkheim's thinking on the social foundations of knowledge. From Saussure and Levi-Strauss to Foucault, Bourdieu and Derrida, today's criticisms of modern politics and culture owe an important, if unacknowledged, debt to Durkheim. These engaging and innovative essays by leading sociologist Charles Lemert bring together his writings on the contributions of French social theory past and present. Rather than merely interpret the theories, Lemert uses them to explore the futures of sociology, social theory, and culture studies. Durkheim's Ghosts offers the reader original insights into Durkheim's legacy and the wider French traditions for the cultural and social sciences. Of special note is the book's new and exciting theory of culture and semiotics. Provocative, scholarly, imaginative and ambitious this book will be invaluable to anyone interested in social theory, culture, and intellectual history of modern times
Dark thoughts : race and the eclipse of society by Charles C Lemert( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prominent sociologist Charles Lemert compellingly argues that race is the central feature of modern culture; this was true for the 20th century and it will be true for the 21st. If we want to understand how the world works, Lemert explains, we must understand the centrality of race in our lives and in the foundation of our society. We must also be able to face up to what we've done to one another in the name of race. This book tells of the important moments of the 20th century through the writings of such major figures as W.E.B. Du Bois, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Anna Julia Cooper, Nella Larson, and Malcolm X, always with an eye to the complicated ways that race weaves itself through the fabric of our lives. In short vignettes before each chapter, Lemert also shares his own complicated history with race - from his boyhood of being raised by two mothers, one white and one black, to his recent adoption of a bi-racial daughter. "Dark Thoughts" reflects the most urgent social issues at the beginning of the 21st century: race relations, multiculturalism, and social justice
