Erving Goffman and modern sociology by Philip Manning( Book )

29 editions published between 1989 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of Erving Goffman (1922-82) has had an enormous impact throughout the social sciences, yet his writings have not received detailed scrutiny. This book not only assesses all of Goffman's seminal works but also demonstrates why his thought has been so influential to modern sociology. The book both explores and complements Goffman's ideas, drawing on the structuration theory of Anthony Giddens and on ethnomethodology to situate Goffman's work in relation to other, more systematic social theories while keeping an eye on how Goffman's work questions their basic presuppositions
Freud and American sociology by Philip Manning( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 299 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although Freud's impact on social science - and indeed twentieth-century social thought - has been extraordinary, his impact on American sociology has been left relatively unexplored. This ground-breaking book aims to fill this knowledge gap. By examining the work of pioneers such as G.H. Mead, Cooley, Parsons and Goffman, as well as a range of key contemporary thinkers, it provides an accurate history of the role Freud and psychoanalysis played in the development of American social theory. Despite the often reluctant, and frequently resistant, nature of this encounter, the book also draws attention to the abiding potential of fusing psychoanalytic and sociological thinking." "Freud and American Sociology represents an original and compelling contribution to scholarly debate. At the same time, the clarity with which Manning develops his comprehensive account means that the book is also highly suitable for adoption on a range of upper-level undergraduate and graduate courses, including sociology, social theory, social psychology, and related disciplines."--Jacket
On Folkways and mores : William Graham Sumner then and now by William Graham Sumner( )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 142 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Graham Sumner is remembered primarily as an opponent of government intervention in social and economic issues. Focusing on Folkways (1906), this book examines Sumner's fundamental work as a comparative ethnographer with an appreciation for the rules and rituals that regulate everyday behavior. In Folkways, Sumner developed classifications and an array of sociological concepts that continue to influence the discipline today. This new book presents key excerpts from Folkways as well as three of Sumner's other classic essays. It also includes five original essays by contemporary authorities that explain and explore Sumner's importance and influence. By linking Sumner's work to contemporary research about social control, the sociology of law, and sociological theory, these new essays confirm his status as a foundational thinker in the field. Sumner offers an elegant conceptual schema with which to analyze the moral codes of in- and out-groups. His extensive use of comparative anthropological data demonstrates a qualitative methodology that can easily be applied to the analysis of contemporary American society. This volume includes contributions by Jonathan B. Imber, Howard G. Schneiderman, and A. Javier Trevino."--Provided by publisher
Relations in public; microstudies of the public order by Erving Goffman( Book )

5 editions published between 2010 and 2017 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Relations in Public, Erving Goff man provides a grammar of the unspoken language used in public places. He shows that the way strangers relate in public is part of a design by which friends and acquaintances manage their relationship in the presence of bystanders. He argues that, taken together, this forms part of a new domain of inquiry into the rules for co-mingling, or public order. Most people give little thought to how elaborate and complex our everyday behavior in public actually is. For example, we adhere to the rules of pedestrian traffic on a busy thoroughfare, accept the usual ways of acting in a crowded elevator or subway car, grasp the delicate nuances of conversational behavior, and respond to the rich vocabulary of body gestures. We behave differently at weddings, at meals, in crowds, in couples, and when alone. Such everyday behavior, though generally below the level of awareness, embodies unspoken codes of social understandings necessary for the orderly conduct of society

Mathematics Instruction in Inner-City Intermediate Schools : an Inductive Approach to Identifying Problems and Crafting Solutions. Research Report #8 by Philip Manning( Book )

3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An exploration of sources of gang activity in an urban area used ethnographic research with researchers posing as mathematics tutors for 1 year in a school comprising seventh and eighth grades. The "tutors" attended six eighth grade mathematics classes and acted as assistants to the teacher. The classes of 25 to 30 students lasted 40 minutes and were held at a majority black, neighborhood school. The researchers took field notes recording what happened in class focusing primarily on students' interactions with one another and with the teacher and other school employees. An analysis of these observations found that the educational goals of providing knowledge and assessing its transmission were undermined by the following factors: (1) the lack of predictability of schedule and class work from one day to the next; (2) the failure to monitor students' progress; (3) the failure of students to master material taught in previous grades; (4) the rate of student absenteeism from class; and (5) the amount of class time devoted to administrative activities. Observations also indicate that correcting these problems requires three steps: accurate assessment of each student at the beginning of the year, individualized instruction, and careful monitoring of each student's progress in order to provide feedback.
