Contemporary Mormonism : social science perspectives( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 2001 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Mormon church's growth rate, if it continues at the rate established during the past fifty years, could make the LDS church a major world faith by the end of 2080. This first collection of sociological essays exclusively on Mormonism explores the church's rapid growth and issues as wide-ranging as "Religion and Drug Use," "The Institutional Role of Mormon Women," "Dealing with Social Change," and "Mormons and Indians."" "Featuring the work of the major scholars conducting social science research on Mormonism today, the volume has much to tell not only about Mormonism but also about the nature of successful religious movements; secularization and assimilation; boundary maintenance; identity formation; recruitment; church growth; life changes; patriarchy and gender roles; and institutional change."--Jacket

Families and households in post-apartheid South Africa : socio-demographic perspectives by Acheampong Yaw Amoateng( Book )

6 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Prior to South Africa's democratic transition in 1994, studies of families and households were limited by the structure of apartheid and the lack of adequate social and economic data. Large social changes since that time have had a profound effect on public-policy planning and service delivery, and this monograph takes a new look at the lingering effects of colonialism and apartheid on South African families, as well as their economic gains. Experts from the fields of demographics, economics, psychology, and sociology report their findings on living arrangements across rural and urban divides; on access to toilets, electricity, water, and housing; on rates of marriage and divorce; on fertility and infant mortality; and on the housework and other chores performed by children

The geographic redistribution of blacks and nonblacks : thirty years in perspective by Tim B Heaton( Book )

2 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

United States population trends in 1960 suggested that the growing socioeconomic status of blacks would result in increasingly similar migration patterns among blacks and whites. Analysis of 1950 to 1980 census data was conducted to test that prediction. The analysis showed that in general, recent population trends have differed greatly from past trends, and are characterized by a shift toward nonmetropolitan growth (versus earlier movements toward large cities) and a resurgence of Southern growth. Examination of movements between metropolitan and nonmetropolitan counties showed that blacks are participating in the same redistribution trends that characterized the American population as a whole in the 1970-1980 decade. The greater black (versus white) growth rates in fringe counties, the resurgence of black growth in nonmetropolitan areas, and the decline in racial growth differentials between the South and non-South in the 1970s suggest that blacks are increasingly affected by social forces that determine white population redistribution. However, growth rates have not completely converged: the narrowing of the gap between percentages of blacks and whites is marked only in fringe counties of large metropolitan counties. Given the magnitude of change in the last decade, the uneven distribution of blacks and whites will probably remain despite recent evidence of convergence. (Author/MJL)
