Masculinities by Raewyn Connell( Book )

104 editions published between 1993 and 2018 in 7 languages and held by 2,068 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a new edition of R.W. Connell's text, which has become a classic work on the nature and construction of masculine identity. Connell argues that there is not one masculinity, but many different masculinities, each associated with different positions of power. In a world gender order that continues to privilege men over women, but also raises difficult issues for men and boys, his account is more pertinent than ever before." "This second edition of Connell's book will be essential reading for students taking courses on masculinities and gender studies, and will be of interest to students and scholars across the humanities and social sciences."--Jacket

Gender and power : society, the person, and sexual politics by Raewyn Connell( Book )

36 editions published between 1987 and 2017 in English and Turkish and held by 946 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sexual politics - from economic equality to anti-gay violence - is a vast area of debate. This exceptional new book seeks to integrate gender and sexuality into the mainstream of social and political theory with the aim of challenging and transforming these traditional areas. The book is an original contribution to theory, setting out for the first time a systematic framework for the social analysis of gender and sexuality. It is written with a clarity and scope that also make it useful as an introductory textbook on sexual politics. The book reviews theories of gender from feminism to psychoanalysis, sex role theory, and sociobiology. It maps the structure of gender relations in contemporary life and in history; proposes a new approach to femininity and masculinity; and offers a wide-ranging analysis of sexual politics and the dynamics of change, from working-class feminism to the dilemmas of the 'men's movement'. Connell has produced a major work of synthesis and scholarship which will be of unique value to students and professionals in sociology, politics, psychology, women's studies, gay studies, and to anyone interested in sexual politics'."--Back cover
Schools and social justice by Raewyn Connell( Book )

18 editions published between 1753 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 748 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ruling class, ruling culture : studies of conflict, power, and hegemony in Australian life by Raewyn Connell( Book )

22 editions published between 1977 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of the Australian ruling class - the main companies, the leading political groups and the links and conflicts among them. The author also analyses class inequalities in education, the development of children's ideas about class, the role of the mass media and the way class relations are cemented culturally and psychologically. He introduces his book with a brief discussion of the literature on class theory, and a critical evaluation of Australian writing on class. Professor Connell's major aims are to describe and analyse Australia in the 1970s, to show how class theory is a useful tool in understanding the situation and to develop the theory by working through some practical cases. Apart from its obvious importance for Australian readers, this book should be of interest in other countries, both for comparison and for its original ideas on a number of important issues, such as conflict in the ruling class, and class consciousness in young people
Southern theory : the global dynamics of knowledge in social science by Raewyn Connell( Book )

31 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in English and Swedish and held by 472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Southern Theory Raewyn Connell presents the case for a new 'world social science' - one that is inclusive of many voices - by arguing for a more democratic global recognition of social theory from societies outside the dominant European and North American metropole. Intellectual production of the majority 'southern' world does in fact include theory, though its contribution is often marginalised and intellectually discredited by the metropole. Connell shows how social theory about the modern world from peripheral societies is equal in intellectual rigour and is often of greater political relevance to our changing world. Beginning with an examination of the hidden assumptions of modern general theory, Southern Theory looks to the 'southern' social experience and the theories that have emerged from Australia, Indigenous peoples, Latin America, India, Africa, Islam and other post-colonial societies, as sources of important and vital contributions to world social science. These myriad theories offer valuable perspectives so crucial to the application of social theory in the contemporary world, having the power to transform the influence of the metropolitan hegemony on social thought by mutual regard and interaction. Southern Theory is a major new work in social theory, drawing on anthropology, history, psychology, philosophy, economics and cultural studies, with wide-ranging implications for the social sciences in the 21st century
Confronting equality : gender, knowledge and global change by Raewyn Connell( Book )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What does social equality mean now, in a world of markets, global power and new forms of knowledge? In this new book, Raewyn Connell combines vivid research with theoretical insight and radical politics to address this question. The focus moves across family change, class and education, intellectual workers, and the global dimension of social science, to contemporary theorists of knowledge and global power, and the political dilemmas of today's left. Written with clarity and passion, this book proposes a bold agenda for social science, and shows it in action."--Page 4 of cover
The child's construction of politics by Raewyn Connell( Book )

15 editions published between 1971 and 1975 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Making the difference : schools, families, and social division by R. W Connell( Book )

9 editions published between 1982 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 347 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Making the Difference draws on a detailed study of the schools and homes of the powerful and the wealthy, and of ordinary wage-earners. It allows children, parents and teachers to speak for themselves and from what they say it develops strikingly new ways of understanding 'educational inequality', of how the class and gender systems work, and of schools and their social roles. 'Equality of opportunity', co-education, and 'relevant and meaningful curriculum' are all questioned, sympathetically but incisively. Ranging across educational policy from system level to the everyday experience of kids and teachers, from the problems of schooling to the production of class and gender relations, this path-breaking combination of theory, research and politics remains engaging, thought-provoking, and relevant." -- Book Jacket
Staking a claim : feminism, bureaucracy and the state by Suzanne Franzway( Book )

9 editions published between 1989 and 1992 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An attempt to bring feminist experience and social theory together to produce a systematic view of the state as an agent in sexual politics.

Among the topics covered are the nature of citizenship, the structure of patriarchy, sexual violence, welfare institutions, electoral politics and trade unions. The particular policy issues discussed are welfare policies, rape reform law, housing policy and equal employment opportunities. -- Publisher description
Teachers' work by Raewyn Connell( Book )

11 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is an account of the work of a number of secondary school teachers, the social relationships and structures that surround them, and the ways these relationships affect what they do as teachers. Its main purpose is to contribute to a difficult but strategic debate about social inequality and the future of public schooling. I hope also it may help explain teachers' working lives to other people, including parents of school students, and trainee teachers; and help practising teachers reflect on their own situations and purposes." - Introduction
Education, change and society by Raewyn Connell( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2013 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Written in an engaging manner by Australia's leading sociology and education academics, 'Education, Change and Society' is written to assist students in their understanding of how and by what mechanisms contemporary education in Australia operates. The broader issues concerning Australian society are examined in the context of educational institutions and policies, promoting critical reflection and facilitating in-depth analysis. The book is written around the belief that the fast rise of globalisation has pushed the education system in Australia to face the challenges of rapidly evolving change processes, to which previous generations were impervious. The authors7F 19 knowledge and expertise in the field help to prepare students to meet the challenges of teaching very recent and sometimes dramatic policy and social changes in Australian education."--Publisher's website

Gender reckonings : new social theory and research by James W Messerschmidt( Book )

4 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vivid narratives, fresh insights, and new theories on where gender theory and research stand today Since scholars began interrogating the meaning of gender and sexuality in society, this field has become essential to the study of sociology. Gender Reckonings aims to map new directions for understanding gender and sexuality within a more pragmatic, dynamic, and socially relevant framework. It shows how gender relations must be understood on a large scale as well as in intimate detail. The contributors return to the basics, questioning how gender patterns change, how we can realize gender equality, and how the structures of gender impact daily life. Gender Reckonings covers not only foundational concepts of gender relations and gender justice, but also explores postcolonial patterns of gender, intersectionality, gender fluidity, transgender practices, neoliberalism, and queer theory. Gender Reckonings combines the insights of gender and sexuality scholars from different generations, fields, and world regions. The editors and contributors are leading social scientists from six continents, and the book gives vivid accounts of the changing politics of gender in different communities. Rich in empirical detail and novel thinking, Gender Reckonings is a lasting resource for students, researchers, activists, policymakers, and everyone concerned with gender justice
