The last half-century : societal change and politics in America by Morris Janowitz( Book )

The Last Half-Century represents the culmination of a lifetime of scholarship by Morris Janowitz. In this comprehensive and systematic analysis of the major trends in American society during the past fifty years, he probes the weakening of popular party affiliations and the increased inability of elected representatives to rule. Centering his work on the crucial concept of social control, Janowitz orders and assesses a vast amount of empirical research to clarify the failure of basic social institutions to resolve our chronic conflicts. For Janowitz, social control denotes a society's capacity to regulate itself within a moral framework that transcends simple self-interest. He poses urgent questions: Why has social control been so drastically weakened in our advanced industrial society? And what strategies can we use to strengthen it again? The explanation rests in part on the changes in social structure which make it more and more complicated for citizens to calculate their political self-interest. At the same time, complex economic and defense problems also strain an already overburdened legislative system, making effective, responsive political rule increasingly difficult. Janowitz concludes by assessing the response of the social sciences to the pressing problem of social control and asserts that new forms of citizen participation in the government must be found.--Publisher description

Dynamics of prejudice : a psychological and sociological study of veterans by Bruno Bettelheim( Book )

17 editions published between 1950 and 1966 in English and Undetermined and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In April-June 1946 a survey, ordered by the American Jewish Committee, was conducted among 150 World War II rank-and-file veterans, all of them male, white and non-Jewish, residing in Chicago. The survey aimed to examine the connection between the veterans' wartime experiences, postwar situation, and personality traits, on the one hand, and ethnic prejudices, primarily antisemitism (but also prejudices against Blacks and other minorities), on the other. The data suggest that ethnic intolerance is more a function of subjective perceptions than of the objective situation. Emphasizes principal factors which can explain the intolerance manifested by the veterans, such as subjective deprivation and downward social mobility, as well as somewhat lesser factors such as anxiety and the absense of adequate control of hostile discharge against ethnic minorities

Institution building in urban education by Morris Janowitz( Book )

19 editions published between 1968 and 1971 in English and Undetermined and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents a sociological perspective on the issues involved in transferring the institutional structure of inner city schools, and discusses the closing of the gap between sociological analysis and policy, and professional practice and citizen participation. Examining the published and unpublished studies of experimental programs in urban education, and various surveys and proposals for reorganizing public school systems, the book focuses on the following areas: the slum school and contemporary society, the organizational format of the public school system, alternative models of change, operational elements of the school system, and school-community relations. For inner city education, the basic implications of the specialization and the aggregation models are held to rest on political issues of Federal versus state and local control, and geared to be relevant to the differing forms of control. The notion of the aggregation model, however, is concluded to be the one relevant to the entire social structure. (Rj)
