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

21 editions published between 1980 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 918 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 904 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

Advances in military sociology : essays in honor of Charles C. Moskos by Giuseppe Caforio( Book )

10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There could be no better homage to recently deceased sociologist Charles C. Moskos than dedicating to him this selection of the papers presented at RC01's international conference in Seoul (July 2008). It offers an up-to-date view of the panorama of social studies on armed forces and conflict resolution in a context of fast-moving change that renders many preceding theoretical previsions obsolete. Just to cite two aspects of this change, one can point first of all to how the presented studies move beyond the very concept of globalization, after which the conference had been named. It in fact emerged with clarity that the new dimensions of the context in which militaries and military policy must move are those of a constant, diffuse interaction of the 'local' and the 'global', so-called globalization. A second aspect, in the international area, is the shift towards a multipolar global order with the United States, the European Union, China, Russia, Latin America, Japan and India all manoeuvring for position, a shift that has significant consequences on military action as well

The Sociology of the Army Reserves: A Preliminary Assessment by Charles C Moskos( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This research note outlines the ways that conventional military sociology does or does not apply to the active duty forces. Statistical data received from social background variables and attitude surveys reveal: that the Guard and the Reserves are more top heavy in grade distribution than the active force, and they are older; that the active force and Reserves are better educated than the Guard, and have more female and minority-group members; that prior-service entrants in the Guard and Reserves are much more likely to score high in mental tests than non-prior service entrants, they are also better educated; dissatisfaction with service life is much higher in reserve forces than in the active force. The data show that, rather than viewing the reservist as part of a moonlighting labor force, we must face the truth. Reserve duty conflicts with family concerns, and causes problems for reservists with their civilian employers, as they ask for released time to fulfill military requirements. These factors create major disincentives to joining the reserve forces. Keywords: Attitude survey, Job satisfaction, Recruitment, Personnel retention, Manpower
