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

9 editions published between 1900 and 2003 in English and held by 313 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 298 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 )

3 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 2 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)
