Writing for social scientists : how to start and finish your thesis, book, or article by Howard Saul Becker( Book )

36 editions published between 1986 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Students and researchers all write under pressure, and those pressures--most lamentably, the desire to impress your audience rather than to communicate with them--often lead to pretentious prose, academic posturing, and, not infrequently, writer's block. Sociologist Howard S. Becker has written the classic book on how to conquer these pressures and simply write. First published nearly twenty years ago, Writing for Social Scientists has become a lifesaver for writers in all fields, from beginning students to published authors. Becker's message is clear: in order to learn how to write, take a deep breath and then begin writing. Revise. Repeat. It is not always an easy process, as Becker wryly relates. Decades of teaching, researching, and writing have given him plenty of material, and Becker neatly exposes the foibles of academia and its "publish or perish" atmosphere. Wordiness, the passive voice, inserting a "the way in which" when a simple "how" will do - all these mechanisms are a part of the social structure of academic writing. By shrugging off such impediments - or at the very least, putting them aside for a few hours - we can reform our work habits and start writing lucidly without worrying about grades, peer approval, or the "literature." In this new edition, Becker takes account of major changes in the computer tools available to writers today, and also substantially expands his analysis of how academic institutions create problems for them. As competition in academia grows increasingly heated, Writing for Social Scientists will provide solace to a new generation of frazzled, would-be writers

"Muchos fantasmas agobian a quienes deben escribir textos académicos o no académicos: entre los más recurrentes, el ideal de la escritura perfecta o la convicción de que un texto bien concebido se escribe "de un tirón" y es reflejo fiel de la claridad de ideas y del talento natural de su autor. En este Manual de escritura para científicos sociales, Howard Becker, cuyas obras de metodología son un clásico desde hace décadas, apela a su experiencia como sociólogo y como docente en seminarios de escritura a fin de desmontar una a una esas fantasías que no hacen sino entorpecer y dilatar la producción de textos ... Manual y ensayo sociológico a la vez, este libro propone modificar los hábitos de trabajo y empezar a escribir sin preocuparse por el estatus, la aprobación de los pares o la bibliografía ..."--Contratapa

Das Arte-Kulturmagazin zeigt u. a. Themen wie: 1. Ereignis der Woche: Wunschmaschine Welterfindung In einer Ausstellung im Rahmen der Wiener Festwochen geht es um "Wunschmaschinen" als Träger von Bedürfnissen, Sehnsüchten nach einer noch unbekannten Zukunft. Der Bogen reicht vom Schlaraffenland bis zum Computer-Istallationen und Echtzeit-Bildern des Internet. 2. Heidelberg Dieses Jahr feiert Heidelberg seinen 800. Geburtstag. Die Stadt wurde 1196 in einer Urkunde des Klosters Schönau erstmals als "Heidelberch" namentlich erwähnt. Anläßlich dieses Jubiläums macht sich Metropolis auf die Spuren der Geschichte der alten Universitätstadt und ihrer Väter. 3. Rassismus in den USA Lawrence Otis Graham, schwarzer Top-Anwalt aus New York, deckt mit seinen Undercover-Recherchen den alltäglichen Rassismus in den USA auf. In seinen Reportagen beschreibt er u.a. die Erfahrungen als Gast in zehn New Yorker Nobelrestaurants aoder als Hilfskellner in einem Golf- und Country-Club In Connecticut, wo Schwarze und Juden noch heut nicht Mitglied werden können. 4. Schwerpunkt: DAK"ART 96: Die Biennale der zeitgenössischen afrikanischen Kunst Zeitgenössische Kunst in Afrika - das ist zu Unrecht vernachlässigtes Thema, wie die DAK"ART 96 in der senegalesischen Hauptstadt Dakar beweist. Sie ist das Fenster des vielfältigen afrikanischen Kunstschaffens auf die Welt - ob im Bereich der Malerei, der Skluptur, der Architektur oder der berühmten senegalesischen Textilkunst. 5.
