Guns in American society : an encyclopedia of history, politics, culture, and the law by Gregg Lee Carter( )

31 editions published between 2002 and 2015 in English and held by 2,755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What lies behind our 200-year-old fascination with firearms and our ambivalence toward gun control? Our gun laws are among the weakest in the developed world, and any attempt to regulate gun ownership is met with formidable resistance. Guns in American Society provides a comprehensive, unbiased look at the controversial issue of guns and gun violence in the United States. In the only major reference on the subject that is not decidedly pro- or anti-gun, the 82 expert contributors probe such complex topics as: Is there a ling between weak gun control and high gun violence? Is todayʼs gun violence inevitable given our violent history? Does gun violence in the media cause violent behavior? Does the Second Amendment make strict gun control nearly impossible? Aside form brief intervals in the wake of tragedy, do Americans really want gun control? Guns in American Society gets beyond the emotionally charged rhetoric and partisan politics surrounding gun issues to make a clear-eyed examination of the facts about firearms and their impact on American society. With more than 500 entries and 4 data-rich appendixes, it is an essential information source for anyone thinking about guns, no matter where they stand on the issues

Working women in America : split dreams by Sharlene Nagy Hesse-Biber( Book )

9 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The second edition of Working Women in America: Split Dreams highlights current research on critical issues affecting American women in today's global workplace. It features updated information and examples, including extended discussions of women's activism within and outside of the workplace, the impact of globalization, the effects of the glass ceiling and sexual harassment, and women's roles in the U.S. labor movement. Retaining the focus of the first edition, this text seeks to dispel the misconception that women's work is a recent phenomenon, when in fact women have been working throughout history. The book also addresses the constant tension and multiple roles that women must manage." "Working Women in America: Split Dreams intersperses first-person accounts throughout the book and provides a number of vignettes of women employed in a variety of occupations. It is an ideal text for courses in women's studies, sociology, economics, social work, and history, and fascinating reading for anyone interested in women and their work."--Jacket
The gun control movement by Gregg Lee Carter( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Gun Control Movement, the latest addition to the Social Movements Past and Present series, provides a map of the social and political landscape of the gun control movement in the United States. It analyzes the relationship between guns and violence, American attitudes about gun control and how those attitudes affect and reflect the movement, and the future of gun control in the United States. Author Gregg Lee Carter discusses at length the letter and spirit of the Second Amendment to the Constitution. He focuses on the mid-1970s to the present, but also introduces a historical context for guns and gun control in Western cultures, with many cross-national comparisons concerning gun laws, gun prevalence, and gun violence. The Gun Control Movement is accessible not only to all academic levels but also to activists on both sides of the gun-control debate and to the general public. Carter does not present any easy solutions to the problems of gun violence. This lucid introduction to the key issues surrounding the movement will stimulate readers' careful consideration. Supplementing the text are a preface, tables and figures, notes and references, selected bibliography, and index

10 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Presents the field of social demography, animating the study of population with a vibrant sociological imagination ... provides multiple demonstrations of how taking a demographic perspective can give us a better understanding of social phenomena once thought to be largely the products of culture, politics, or the economy. Five key chapters concentrate on: the social and individual determinants of fertility, mortality, and migration; the social and individual impacts of changing levels of fertility, mortality, and migration; and the impacts of overpopulation on the environment, and how changes in the environment, in turn, impact the human condition, especially regarding migration."--Provided by publisher
