"This book publishes for the first time the findings of the World Values Survey - conducted in over 40 countries during 1990-93. The countries surveyed range from poor to rich, and include countries in Europe, North America, Africa, Asia, and Latin America as well as countries from the former Soviet Union and China. The questions cover issues from politics, economics, religion, family life, and gender roles, and distinguishes responses by age, gender, economic standing, and education." "Human Values and Beliefs: A Cross Cultural Sourcebook provides a wealth of data that will be of interest to social scientists, journalists, and policy-makers interested in economic, social, and political development. It will also assist people in international sales and investment to understand the countries in which they are involved."--Jacket
Value change in global perspective by Paul R Abramson( )
17 editions published between 1995 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this pioneering work, Paul R. Abramson and Ronald Inglehart show that the gradual shift from Materialist values (such as the desire for economic and physical security) to Post-materialist values (such as the desire for freedom, self-expression, and the quality of life) is in all likelihood a global phenomenon. Value Change in Global Perspective analyzes over thirty years worth of national surveys in European countries and presents the most comprehensive and nuanced discussion of this shift to date. By paying special attention to the way generational replacement transforms values among mass publics, the authors are able to present a comprehensive analysis of the processes through which values change. In addition, Value Change in Global Perspective analyzes the 1990-91 World Values Survey, conducted in forty societies representing over seventy percent of the world's population. These surveys cover an unprecedentedly broad range of the economic and political spectrum, with data from low-income countries (such as China, India, Mexico, and Nigeria), newly industrialized countries (such as South Korea) and former state-socialist countries in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union. This data adds significant new meaning to our understanding of attitude shifts throughout the world. Value Change in Global Perspective has been written to meet the needs of scholars and students alike. The use of percentage, percentage differences, and algebraic standardization procedures will make the results easy to understand and useful in courses in comparative politics and in public opinion. Paul R. Abramson is Professor of Political Science, Michigan State University. Ronald Inglehart is Professor of Political Science and Program Director, Institute for Social Research, University of Michigan
Sacred and secular : religion and politics worldwide by Pippa Norris( Book )

The belief that religion was dying became the conventional wisdom in the social sciences during most of the 20th century.

Modernization and postmodernization : cultural, economic, and political change in 43 societies by Ronald Inglehart( Book )
13 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and Italian and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
But industrialization is not the end of history. Advanced industrial society embraces yet another set of values, de-emphasizing the instrumental rationality that characterized industrial society. Postmodern values then bring new societal changes, including democratic politic institutions and the decline of state socialist regimes. To demonstrate the powerful links between belief systems and political and socioeconomic variables, this book draws on the World Values Surveys, a unique database that looks at the impact of mass publics on political and social life. It provides information from societies representing 70 percent of the world's population - from societies with per capita income as low as $300 per year to those with per capita incomes one hundred times greater and from long-established democracies with market economics to authoritarian states
Modernization, cultural change, and democracy : the human development sequence by Ronald Inglehart( Book )
28 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book demonstrates that people's basic values and beliefs are changing, in ways that affect their political, sexual, economic, and religious behavior. These changes are roughly predictable: to a large extent, they can be explained by the revised version of modernization theory presented here. Drawing on a massive body of evidence from societies containing 85 percent of the world's population, the authors demonstrate that modernization is a process of human development, in which economic development gives rise to cultural changes that make individual autonomy, gender equality, and democracy increasingly likely. The authors present a model of social change that predicts how value systems are likely to evolve in coming decades. They demonstrate that mass values play a crucial role in the emergence and flourishing of democratic institutions."--BOOK JACKET

Cosmopolitan communications : cultural diversity in a globalized world by Pippa Norris( Book )
19 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Publisher description: "Societies around the world have experienced a flood of information from diverse channels originating beyond local communities and even national borders, transmitted through the rapid expansion of cosmopolitan communications. For more than half a century conventional interpretations, [the authors] argue, have commonly exaggerated the potential threats arising from this process. A series of firewalls protects national cultures. This book develops a new theoretical framework for understanding cosmopolitan communications and uses it to identify the conditions under which global communications are most likely to endanger cultural diversity. The authors examine empirical evidence at both the societal level and the individual level, examining the outlook and beliefs of people in a wide range of societies. The study draw on evidence from the World Values Survey, which covers 90 societies in all major regions worldwide from 1981 to 2007. The conclusion considers the implications of the authors' findings for cultural politics."

This round of Euro-Barometer surveys queried respondents on standard Euro-Barometer measures, such as how satisfied they were with their present life, whether they attempted to persuade others close to them to share their views on subjects they held strong opinions about, and whether they discussed political matters. Additional questions focused on the respondents' knowledge of and opinions on the European Community (EC), including whether their country had benefited from being an EC member, and the extent of their personal interest in EC matters.

Other questions dealt with the respondents' current level of happiness, amount of national pride, group memberships, social activities, political involvement and attitudes, and sources of political information.
