The functions of social conflict by Lewis A Coser( Book )

141 editions published between 1956 and 2009 in 8 languages and held by 2,292 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The positive values of conflict for all societies come to light in this study. The author reveals how conflicts fulfill social functions such as maintenance of group boundaries and the prevention of the withdrawl of members from a group. Critical of the view that conflict is dysfunctional, he demonstrates its inadequacies. In a series of basic propositions distilled from the theories of George Simmel, Mr. Coser clarifies the functions of social conflict. These propsitions are extended and related to such theories as those of psychoanalysis and empirical research."--Back cover

The Idea of social structure : papers in honor of Robert K. Merton( Book )

17 editions published between 1975 and 2012 in English and Portuguese and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written and compiled by friends and former students, The Idea of Social Structure honors Robert K. Merton, considered one of the premier sociologists of the twentieth century. Along with Talcott Parsons and Marion J. Levy, Merton was emphatic in his use of the term "social structure"{u2014}however different they were in defining and refining the term. The chapters in this volume address many of Merton{u2019}s diverse sociological theories and, in turn, his theories{u2019} impact upon a very large sociological territory. The volume includes major statements on the context of working with Merton by Lewis A. Coser, Paul F. Lazarsfeld, Robert A. Nisbet, and Seymour Martin Lipset, as well as memorable statements covering Merton{u2019}s interests in the sociology of knowledge and science, planning communities, medical education, relative deprivation, everyday life, political roles, and communication media. This is a powerful sourcebook for understanding the work of Merton and of his intellectual successors. Nisbet called the decade of the 1930s among the most vital and creative periods in American history. It was certainly a period of intense struggle{u2014}political, military, and ideological. But the formation of modern sociology was without question one of the crowning achievements in the scientific evolution of the century. The volume is sharply focused on Merton{u2019}s work and deeply appreciative of the nature of his contribution. It is a landmark effort in the study of sociology as history." -- Publisher's description

On collective memory by Maurice Halbwachs( Book )

15 editions published between 1992 and 2008 in English and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do we use our mental images of the present to reconstruct our past? Maurice Halbwachs (1877-1945) addressed this question for the first time in his work on collective memory, which established him as a major figure in the history of sociology. This volume, the first comprehensive English- language translation of Halbwach's writings on the social construction of memory, fills a major gap in the literature on the sociology of knowledge. Halbwachs' primary thesis is that human memory can only function within a collective context. Collective memory, Halbwachs asserts, is always selective; various groups of people have different collective memories, which in turn give rise to different modes of behavior. Halbwachs shows, for example, how pilgrims to the Holy Land over the centuries evoked very different images of the events of Jesus' life; how wealthy old families in France have a memory of the past that diverges sharply from that of the nouveaux riches; and how working class constructions of reality differ from those of their middle-class counterparts
