Greek Americans : struggle and success by Charles C Moskos( Book )

23 editions published between 1980 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 965 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is an engrossing account of Greek Americans-their history, strengths, conflicts, aspirations, and contributions. Blending sociological insight with historical detail, Peter C. and Charles C. Moskos trace the Greek-American experience from the wave of mass immigration in the early 1900s to today. This is the story of immigrants, most of whom worked hard to secure middle-class status. It is also the story of their children and grandchildren, many of whom maintain an attachment to Greek ethnic identity even as they have become one of America's most successful ethnic groups. As the authors rightly note, the true measure of Greek-Americans is the immigrants themselves who came to America without knowing the language and without education. They raised solid families in the new country and shouldered responsibilities for those in the old. They laid the basis for an enduring Greek-American community. Included in this completely revised edition is an introduction by Michael Dukakis and chapters relating to the early struggles of Greeks in America, the Greek Orthodox Church, success in America, and the survival and expansion of Greek identity despite intermarriage. This work will be of value to scholars of ethnic studies, those interested in Greek culture and communities, and sociologists and historians
All that we can be : Black leadership and racial integration the Army way by Charles C Moskos( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 898 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are many surprising findings in this book, especially for those who may think of the Army as a hidebound and rigidly hierarchical organization. Moskos and Butler reveal how the Army has created a transracial "Afro-Anglo" culture that fosters organizational effectiveness, and they make the point that black advancement does not depend upon the absence of racists in an organization so long as opportunity channels exist for minorities. Moskos and Butler also describe in detail the success of the Army's educational programs in developing the academic skills of underprivileged recruits - blacks and whites alikeand which could serve the needs of civilian youth as well

The Sociology of the Army Reserves by Charles C Moskos( )

2 editions published between 1987 and 1990 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report presents a conceptual framework of reserve components. The focus is on the Selected Reserves of the U.S. Army. The guiding principle of the report is that reserve components are more than just an organizational variation of active components. The core characteristics of the reserve components are highlighted by an organizational contrast with active-duty components and by a comparative contrast of American reserves with those of other Western countries. The following variables differentiate reserves from active-duty components: (1) Normative motivation is a significant factor; (2) Military Occupational Specialty mismatch is a problem; (3) Family conflict is greater with seniors than juniors; and (4) Career development increasingly comes into conflict with the pressures of demanding civilian occupations. Comparative analysis identified the following as the unique elements of the American reserves face exceptional conflict between reserve duties and civilian employment responsibilities. Such conflict promises to become more severe as reserve components become increasingly integrated with the active force under Total Force concepts. This report makes policy recommendations based on the analysis. Keywords: Army national guard, Military sociology
