Cultural change and ordinary life by Brian Longhurst( )

15 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,746 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Cultural Change and Ordinary Life, Longhurst evaluates changes in the media and ordinary life in the context of large-scale cultural change, especially with respect to globalization and hybridization, fragmentation, spectacle and performance, and enthusing or fan-like activities. He makes the case that analysis of the media has to be brought into a more thorough dialogue with other forms of research that have looked at social processes." "Cultural Change and Ordinary Life is key reading for students and researchers of sociology, media studies, cultural studies and mass communication."--Jacket
Globalization and belonging by Michael Savage( )

25 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on long-term empirical research into cultural practices, lifestyles and identities, Globalization and Belonging explores how far-reaching global changes are articulated locally. The authors address key sociological issues of stratification as analysis alongside 'cultural' issues of identity, difference, choice and lifestyle. Their original argument: Shows how globalisation theory conceives of the 'local' ; reveals that people have a sense of elective belonging based on where they choose to put down roots. Suggests that the feel of a place is much more strongly influenced by the values and lifestyles of those migrating to it ; reinvigorates debates in urban and community studies by recovering the 'local' as an intrinsic aspect of globalization
Popular music and society by Brian Longhurst( Book )

41 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in English and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The book examines the ways in which popular music is produced, structured as text, and understood and used by audiences. It includes overviews and critiques of general theories, outlines of the most important empirical studies, and data on the contemporary production and consumption of popular music." "Drawing on the theories of Adorno and Weber, Longhurst examines the contemporary organization of the music industry, the social production of music, and the effects of technological change on production. The history and politics of popular music are discussed, as are the connections of popular music and sexuality. Issues such as authenticity, stemming from the debates around black music, are addressed, and several different ways of studying the texts of popular music are reviewed. The literature on subculture and music is looked at in the context of an examination of the audience for pop music. Developing work on fans is considered, as are contemporary approaches which problematize relationships of production and consumption." "Clearly written and well illustrated, Popular Music and Society will be an excellent textbook for students in the sociology of culture, cultural studies, and media and communication studies."--Jacket
Audiences : a sociological theory of performance and imagination by Nicholas Abercrombie( Book )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2003 in English and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Audiences are problematic and, as such, the study of audiences has represented a key site of activity in the social sciences and humanities. In Audiences, the authors offer a timely review of the past 50 years of theoretical and methodological debate to argue the case for a paradigmatic shift in audience research." " This shift, they argue, is necessitated by the emergence of the "diffused audience." Audience experience can no longer be simply classified as "simple" or "mass," for in modern, advanced capitalist societies, people are members of an audience all the time. Being a member of an audience is no longer an exceptional event, nor even an everyday event. Rather, it is constitutive of everyday life. That this is the case is attributable to the fact that our relationship with events and objects in the social world has changed. If the world is increasingly conceived as a spectacle, then so are the people within it, and we become both simultaneously performers and audience."--The publisher
Karl Mannheim and the contemporary sociology of knowledge by Brian Longhurst( Book )

20 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and held by 466 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book the author argues for the continuing relevance of Karl Mannheim's sociology of knowledge. Maintaining that Mannheim's original development of the sociology of knowledge can be updated using contemporary material, he develops a framework for the analysis of knowledge and belief in contemporary society. The books contains an original interpretation of Mannheim, showing how he relates the production and utilization of beliefs to competitive struggle between social groups. Mannheim's views on relativism and the intellectuals are considered at length

16 editions published between 1994 and 2006 in English and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors focus on the activities of those who manage the prison system. They identify the most important social actors in the prison system, located both historically and comparatively, and examine their characteristic forms of discourse. A number of crucial areas of decision-making are analysed in depth, including decisions about the initial classification of prisoners, transfers between establishments and the allocation of prisoners to different forms of work. Another major focus is on the different forms and mechanisms of accountability, and the book concludes with an analysis of recent policy changes. Discourse, Power and Justice will be essential reading for both students and practitioners in sociology, social policy, criminology and law
