Community and civil society by Ferdinand Tönnies( )

15 editions published between 2001 and 2005 in English and held by 1,596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ferdinand Tonnies's Gemeinschaft und Gesellschaft (first published in 1887) is a classic of social and political theory in the later-modern period. It focuses on the universally endemic clash between small-scale, kinship and neighbourhood-based 'communities' and large-scale competitive market 'societies'. This theme is explored in all aspects of life - in political, economic, legal and family structures; in art, religion and culture; in constructions of 'selfhood' and 'personhood'; and in modes of cognition, language and human understanding. Tonnies is best known as one of the 'founding fathers' of modern sociology, but the present work lays greater emphasis on his relationship to European political thought and to developments in philosophy since the seventeeth-century scientific revolution, particularly the legacies of Hobbes and Kant. It can be read at many different levels: as a response to developments in Bismarckian Germany; as a more general critique of the culture of modernity; as a theoretical exercise in social, political and moral science; and as an unusual commentary on the inner character of 'democratic socialism'. This new translation and introduction make Tonnies's classic but difficult work accessible to English-speaking readers interested in social and political theory, intellectual and social history, language and cultural studies, and the history of economic thought."--Jacket

Private lives, public spirit : a social history of Britain, 1870-1914 by José Harris( Book )

26 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and Undetermined and held by 751 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a lively and original new study of the social history of Britain between 1870 and 1914. Jose Harris surveys and reinterprets many themes: demography and disease, work and religion, social reform and social theory, feminism and family life. The period was marked by the co-existence of many trends and principles often believed to be mutually exclusive. Dr Harris vividly conveys a sense of the diversity which characterized the age, and reveals the doubts and ambivalencies of contemporaries. She shows that in many respects Great Britain at this period was a ramshackle and amorphous society, characterized by a myriad of contradictory opinions, at every level from parish pump to empire." "Private Lives, Public Spirit suggests that many 'Victorians' and 'Edwardians' were remarkably different from their modern stereotypes, and that much of what are now thought of as quintessentially 'Victorian values' stemmed less from traditional ideas and structures than from 'progressive' reformist movements of the very end of Victoria's reign. It is a readable and compelling depiction of Britain during the watershed period before the First World War: a period whose characteristic ideas and structures did not vanish with the war but survived with great tenacity over the next half-century."--Jacket

Tonnies : Community Civil Society. Cambridge Texts in the History of Political Thought( )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ferdinand Tonnies' Gemeinschaft und Gesellschaft (first published in 1887) is a classic of social and political theory, which explores the clash between small-scale neighbourhood-based 'communities' and large-scale competitive market 'societies'. Tonnies considers all aspects of life - political, economic, legal and family; art, religion and culture; the construction of 'selfhood' and 'personhood'; and modes of cognition, language and understanding. Often recognised as one of the founding texts of sociology, Gemeinschaft und Gesellschaft is also a highly significant contribution to European political thought and philosophy, with particular relevance to the legacies of Hobbes and Kant. It is at once a response to modernity, a theoretical exercise in social, political and moral science, and an unusual commentary on the inner character of 'democratic socialism'. This new English rendition will introduce Tonnies' work to a fresh generation of English-speaking readers with interests in social and political theory and the history of European ideas

Spacecraft charging at geosynchronous altitudes : current-balance and critical temperature in a non-Maxwellian plasma by Jose T Harris( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Spacecraft charging threatens to disable spacecraft components and adversely impact any satellite function. Electrostatic charge, and especially discharge, can hinder the proper operation of, or destroy, spacecraft components, thereby rendering the spacecraft ineffective or inoperative. The level of charging is dependent on the particle energy (speed) distribution. Current spacecraft design and material provide limited protection against the dangers of electrostatic discharge, and active measures such as beam emission are also employed
