The Development of welfare states in Europe and America by PETER FLORA( Book )

51 editions published between 1980 and 2017 in English and held by 839 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume seeks to contribute to an interdisciplinary, comparative, and historical study of Western welfare states. It attempts to link their historical dynamics and contemporary problems in an international perspective. Building on collaboration between European- and American-based research groups, the editors have coordinated contributions by economists, political scientists, sociologists, and historians. The developments they analyze cover a time span from the initiation of modern national social policies at the end of the nineteenth century to the present... The development of the social security systems, of public expenditures and taxation, of public education and educational opportunities, and of income inequality are described, compared, and analyzed for varying groupings of the Western European and North American nations.--Publisher's description

State formation, nation-building, and mass politics in Europe : the theory of Stein Rokkan : based on his collected works by Stein Rokkan( Book )

29 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and German and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stein Rokkan was one of the leading social scientists of the post-war era. He was a prolific writer, yet nowhere is his contribution to social science - the macro-model of the political development of Europe - presented in an integrated and systematic way. Stein Rokkan had plans to do this but he died before the work could be started."--BOOK JACKET. "The current tensions between integration and national reassertion in Europe have given Rokkan's basic approach fresh importance. To demonstrate its relevance, this book has been produced, based solely on his numerous writings which have been carefully selected, edited, and rearranged to present his theory as a coherent whole."--BOOK JACKET

Modernisierungsforschung; zur empirischen Analyse der gesellschaftlichen Entwicklung by Peter Flora( Book )

11 editions published in 1974 in German and English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wahrend die Zahl der soziologischen VerOffentlichungen hierzulande in den letzten Jahren sprunghaft angestiegen ist, hat der Anteil empirischer Arbeiten kaum zuge nommen; vielleicht ist er sogar rtickiaufig. Dies gilt vor all em ftir Untersuchungen der Struktur und Entwickiung von Gesellschaften, also flir den Bereich der "empirischen Makrosoziologie". Es gibt allerdings Anzeichen daflir, daB sich der modische Auf schwung der methodischen Grundlagenprogrammatik, der pauschalen politbkonomi schen Fundamentalkritik und der vielen ideologiekritischen Subtilitaten zunehmend erschbpft. Es zeigt sich jedenfalls, daB auf eine Fortentwickiung der Soziologie als erfahrungswissenschaftlicher Teildisziplin nicht verzichtet werden kann, will man nicht die wissenschaftliche Diskussion auf politisch-ideologische Bekenntnisse, die Entfaltung der immanenten Logik von Theorien, puristische wissenschaftstheoreti sche Kritik oder Methodenformalismus beschranken. Ich hoffe sehr, daB die vier Arbeiten, die ich hier anzeiger. kann und die in diesem Jahr im Westdeutschen Verlag erscheinen: - Peter Flora, Modernisierungsforschung: zur empirischen Analyse der gesellschaft lichen Entwicklung. - Peter Flora, Indikatoren der Modernisierung: ein historisches Datenhandbuch. Walter Milller, Familie, Schule und Beruf: Untersuchungen zur sozialen Mobilitat in der Bundesrepublik Deutschland. Karl Ulrich Mayer, Ungleichheit und Mobilitat im sozialen BewuBtsein. vom "allgemeinen Leser" und den Fachkollegen als Beitrage zu einer Soziologie aner kannt werden, die quer zu den genannten Richtungen liegt: als Beitrage zu politisch wichtigen, aber wissenschaftlich spezifischen Problemen, auf dem Stand der interna tionalen Diskussion und methodischen Entwickiung, technisch versiert, aber in erster Linie auf substantielle Ergebnisse ausgerichtet

Auf dieser Konferenz wurde erstmals versucht, Sozialwissenschaftler aus aller Welt zusammenzubringen, die an historischen Datensammlungen über langfristige ge sellschaftliche Entwicklungen arbeiten. Mein damaliger Bericht wurde für die Ver· öffentlichung hier nur geringfügig verändert und gestrafft sowie mit einer Einleitung versehen, in der einige allgemeinere Bemerkungen über die Geschichte und Funktion sozialwissenschaftlicher Datensammlungen gemacht werden
