Recent social trends in Bulgaria, 1960-1995 by Nikolaĭ Genov( )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 1,272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Considering life-style, fertility, leisure and consumption, inequality, religion, economic institutions, ethnicity, norms of conduct, and family, as well as other trends, Recent Social Trends in Bulgaria, 1960-1995 is the first comprehensive presentation of the major transformations that characterize Bulgaria at the turn of the century. The contributors not only consider a broad range of social phenomena but provide an in-depth analysis of social change." "This national profile provides more data supporting the hypothesis of diversification, rather than convergence, in modern societies, a hypothesis proposed by the Comparative Charting of Social Change group after documenting social change in many countries."--Jacket
Global trends in Eastern Europe by Nikolaĭ Genov( )

16 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 778 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eastern Europe was once clearly defined by the centralised political and economic organisation of the societies in the region. They shared the same official ideology and were members of the same alliances. After 1989, the region collapsed in an economic, political and cultural implosion. What were the moving forces of this profound change? What are its consequences and could we try to reasonably foresee any future developments? In this thought provoking book, Nikolai Genov presents a systematic description and explanation of Eastern European societal transformations after 1989. The changes experience in Eastern European societies are interpreted as adaptations to four global trends; upgrading the rationality of organizations, individualization, spreading of instrumental activism and universalization of value-normative systems
Transboundary migration in the post-Soviet space : three comparative case studies by Nikolaĭ Genov( )

14 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 634 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

«Das von Nikolai Genov und Tessa Savvidis herausgegebene Buch besticht besonders durch die reichhaltige empirische Arbeit. Die Studie überzeugt, weil die Funde der Interviews stets kritisch diskutiert und kontextualisiert werden. Der Leser erfährt nicht nur neuere Umfragewerte unter Migranten und Experten, sondern kann in die geschichtlichen und soziopolitischen Zusammenhänge eintauchen, vor deren Hintergrund Migrationsprozesse ihre Gestalt annehmen. Migration als holistischen, zyklischen Prozess zu analysieren, ist der zweite Verdienst dieser Studie und eine Neuheit für den postsowjetischen Raum.» (Esther Ademmer, Armenisch-Deutsche Korrespondenz (ADK))

Challenges of individualization by Nikolaĭ Genov( )

9 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 223 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book critically engages with a series of provocative questions that ask: Why are contemporary societies so dependent on constructive and destructive effects of individualization? Is this phenomenon only related to the 'second' or 'late' modernity? Can the concept of individualization be productively used for developing a sociological diagnosis of our time? The innovative answers suggested in this book are focused on two types of challenges accompanying the rise of individualization. First, that it is caused by controversial changes in social structures and action patterns. Second, that the effects of individualization question varieties of the common good. Both challenges have a long history but reached critical intensity in advanced contemporary societies in the context of current globalization"--Back cover
