"In what is widely recognized as a pivotal effort to study the social and political contexts of twentieth-century mass murder, Irving Louis Horowitz re-examines from an end-of-century perspective this central fact of life as a crucial aspect of the social science enterprise. In entirely new chapters, ('Counting Bodies'; Surviving the Genocidal State'; and 'Collectivizing Death'), the author expands key concepts introduced in earlier editions in a profound way. The new edition also contains a review of the most serious work done by others during the past decade, in so doing, placing the author's own efforts in a unique professional no less than analytical context. Taking Lives asserts that genocide is not a sporadic or random event, nor is it necessarily linked to economic development, national psychosis or social decay. Genocide is a special sort of mass destruction conducted with the approval of the state apparatus. Life and death issues are uniquely fundamental, since they alone serve as a precondition for the examination of all other issues. Such concerns move us beyond abstract, formalist frameworks into new ways of viewing the social study of the human condition. This has been recognized by nearly all reviewers of earlier editions. Taking Lives is a fundamental work for political scientists, sociologists, and all those concerned with the state's propensity toward evil"--Unedited summary from book cover

Professing sociology; studies in the life cycle of social science by Irving Louis Horowitz( Book )

32 editions published between 1966 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professing Sociology was originally published at a time when sociology commanded widespread interest and public funding. Written by one of the leaders of "the new sociology" of the late sixties, this volume captures the nature and intensity of the field's intellectual foundations and scope. It reveals the field's post-World War II development as a scientific discipline and as a profession, and includes the author's most significant writings on critical trends shaping the field.Irving Louis Horowitz divides the life cycle of sociology into three main sections. The first deals with the inner life of sociology, covering basic theoretical issues uniting and dividing the profession. In a second section, Horowitz shows the institutions and sources from which the struggle of ideas is nourished. A third section shows how political life shapes the inner life of American sociology. Horowitz gives a great deal of attention to international social science, to the relationship of social science to public policy, and to federal projects and grant agencies and their effects on research.Irving Louis Horowitz was undoubtedly influential in shaping his field, and Professing Sociology offers valuable insights into how ideas become part of the fabric of professional life. As the new introduction by Howard G. Schneiderman shows, Professing Sociology provides a clear picture of sociology at the height of its importance

Foundations of political sociology by Irving Louis Horowitz( Book )

35 editions published between 1972 and 2018 in English and Spanish and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When initially published in 1972, Foundations of Political Sociology was acknowledged to be the first unified study of the field. It still provides a cross-fertilization of knowledge concerning the interrelation of social class and political power. Taking into account new specializations in social theory, the book covers all major social systems on a comparative international basis. The opening remarks prepared for this new printing provide an estimate of how the field has changed during the past quarter century, and what unexpected challenges have arisen in areas of public trust and personal privacy. This book examines fascism, communism, anarchism, conservatism, and liberalism as systems of rule as well as domains of theory. It is thus a unique effort at linking problems of history with problems of policy. The six sections of the book detail the historical and theoretical antecedents of this relatively new hybrid area in social research: policy coordinates of political sociology, types of social systems, forms of political ideologies, polarities of revolution and counter-revolution, civil-military relations, mass vs. elite contradictions, and threads of consensus and conflict running through these themes
