All Abraham's children : changing Mormon conceptions of race and lineage by Armand L Mauss( )

9 editions published between 1900 and 2003 in English and held by 1,427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"All Abraham's Children is Armand L. Mauss's long-awaited magnum opus on the origin and evolution of traditional Mormon beliefs and evolution of traditional Mormon beliefs and practices concerning ethnic minorities. Mauss examines how members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have defined themselves and others in terms of racial lineages." "He describes a complex process of the broadening of these self-defined lineages during the last part of the twentieth century as the modern Mormon church continued its worldwide expansion through intense missionary work." "Incorporating his own sociological research, Mauss contends that Mormon constructions of racial identity have not necessarily affected actual behavior negatively and that in some cases Mormons have shown greater tolerance than other groups in the American mainstream." "Employing a broad intellectual historical analysis to identify shifts in LDS behavior over time, All Abraham's Children constitutes an important contribution to Mormon historiography."--BOOK JACKET

The angel and the beehive : the Mormon struggle with assimilation by Armand L Mauss( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 300 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At what he refers to as "the folk or grassroots level," Mauss finds that Mormons have generally been compliant with the retrenchment effort and are today at least as "religious" on most measures as they were in the 1960s. A sizable segment of the Mormon membership, Mauss asserts, has gone beyond "Mormon" retrenchment to express itself in a growing resort to Protestant fundamentalism, both in scriptural understanding and in intellectual style. The author calls on a wide array of sources in sociology and history to show that Mormons, who by mid-century had come a long way from their position as disreputable "outsiders" in a society dominated by the mainline religions, seem now to be adopting more conservative ways and seeking a return to a more sectarian posture

Toward an Empirical Typology of Junior College Student Subcultures by Armand L Mauss( Book )

4 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adaptation of the fourfold typology developed by clark and trow to the junior college environment permits discussion of the role of sociological factors in educational performance. Students of the four types differ primarily in their value commitments to (1) the values of the adult world and (2) the pursuit of intellectual ideas. The subculture typology consists of the "academic" type characterized by (1) and (2), the "vocational" type (1), the "incipient rebel" (2), and the "perpetual teenager" who is identified with neither (1) nor (2). to see if differential responses to questions about such values could be obtained from a junior college population, a questionnaire was administered to 500 students on a suburban california campus. Included were several items to provide background information, items to permit analysis of value commitments, and measures of student response to the most common teaching devices. Data indicate that the four subcultures do exist, with differential consequences for attitudes and behavior. Students create an "environmental press" and the values they bring to college are critical determinants of educational outcomes. (Implications for academic policy are discussed, and tabulations of the responses are presented.) (Al)

Middle Class Youth and Proclivities for Violence by Armand L Mauss( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Answers from questionnaires administered to middle-class freshman and junior students in 4 different rural and suburban high schools were used to assess predisposition to violence. The findings indicated a modest inverse relation between violence proclivity and age, with a sharp difference between boys and girls, reflecting our cultural norms. Though violence-proneness showed no variation by social class, it proved strongly inversely related to school success. There was a clear indication of an association between conservative Christian orthodoxy and violence-proneness; however, people with no formal religious identification also proved violence-prone. One's perception of peer group norms also shows a strong relation to violence proclivity. The presence of a gratification-deferral syndrome, which includes aggression deferral, reduces violent proclivities. The strong relation to sex and school success, as well as to reference group norms and middle-class value commitments like gratification deferral, is strongly reminiscent of what the literature shows to be the chief determinants of juvenile delinquency. The assertion that Americans are a violent people is discussed. (Ks)

A Longitudinal Evaluation of the "Here's Looking at You"Alcohol Education Program 1978-1981. Final Report by Armand L Mauss( Book )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Here's Looking at You" (hlay) is a creative prevention curriculum designed to cultivate a commitment among young people to deal in responsible ways with alcohol in their environment. The model, developed as a demonstration project for the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, consists of self-contained teaching units for grades k-12. This non-technical report, directed to non-research professionals, describes an extensive 3-year evaluation conducted to measure the effectiveness of the program in grades 4-12. Three Seattle school districts and two Portland school districts participated. Some schools were assigned to the experimental condition, and comparable schools were assigned to a control condition. The test instruments were administered to some students both before and after exposure to the hlay curriculum; many students were followed for 3 years. Immediate results showed a definite curriculum impact for all students in the area of knowledge about alcohol and alcoholism. In addition, self-esteem was favorably affected for those in grades 5, 6, and 7. Decision making skills were improved for students in grades 6-12. Attitudes were least affected, although there was evidence that students in grade 8 and younger students changed somewhat toward favoring moderate drinking as opposed to excessive drinking. The program appeared most effective in intermediate grades, arguing for early intervention. Other influences, particularly parents, peers, and religion appeared to have a greater impact. The report contains a number of graphs illustrating the evaluation process and the results of the study. (More complex data is contained in the Scientific Appendix and the Manual of Evaluation Guidelines which are available from the Social Research Center, Washington State University.) (Jac)

The Generation Gap Myths and Measures by Armand L Mauss( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The frequently referred-to "generation gap" is a myth as yet unsubstantiated by empirical evidence. Explicit definitions of the phenomenon are lacking; implicit definitions are ambiguous and hard to extract. To offer an empirically tested operational definition of "generation gap" and analyze its relationship to several independent social variables, a questionnaire was given to the freshman and junior classes of each of 4 high schools in the midwest, and on the west and east coasts. Using as the definition of generation gap "index of identification with Adult Authority Figures" (i.e., parents, teachers, administrators, policemen), considerable variation was found. A steady increase in adult identification was found with increase in socioeconomic status. Success in school, as measured by grades, and identification with certain traditional middle-class ideals, for example gratification deferral, could also be used to predict adult identification. Religion was also a factor--Jews proved most likely to identify with adult authorities, and unchurched and Liberal Protestants, least likely. Age and sex, however, made no appreciable difference in identification with adult authorities. (KS)
