C. Wright Mills and the Cuban Revolution : an exercise in the art of sociological imagination by A. Javier Treviño( )

7 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 1,148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A. Javier Treviño reconsiders the opinions, perspectives, and insights of the Cubans that the sociologist C. Wright Mills interviewed during his visit to the island in 1960. On returning to the United States, MIlls wrote a small paperback on much of what he had heard and seen, which he published as 'Listen, Yankee: The Revolution in Cuba.' Those interviews - now transcribed and translated - are interwoven here with extensive annotations to explain and contextualize their content. Readers will be able to 'hear' Mills as an expert interviewer and ascertain how he used what he learned from his informants"--

An introduction to the sociology of law by Nicholas S Timasheff( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The exiled Russian sociologist and legal scholar Nicholas S. Timasheff's place in the forefront of the sociology of law was established with the publication, in 1939, of An Introduction to the Sociology of Law. His magnum opus articulates a systematic legal sociology. The book's title is misleading, giving the false impression that the volume is merely a textbook intended for classroom use. It is much more than this. An Introduction to the Sociology of Law is a sophisticated treatise that explains, precisely and methodically, the law as a social force. It makes two fundamental points: law can, indeed must, be studied by sociology, and law is a combination of socio-ethical and imperative coordination of human behavior." "A continuing thread in Introduction is Timasheff's interest in the dialectical interplay between the positive law and the living law. What is more, he discusses at length what he considers to be the essential systems of thought and action in the social sciences. Timasheff sees sociology's purpose as the study of similar, related, or clusters of social phenomena. Accordingly, Timasheff's focus is principally on the law's causal reality."--BOOK JACKET
Researching social problems by Amir B Marvasti( Book )

8 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book covers a wide range of contemporary methods for researching social problems and connects these approaches to the broader substance and theories of social problems. Expository and discursive in approach, chapters follow a uniform structure, with each offering research examples and a broad description of the related method and its theoretical context, together with a "how-to" guide for applying that method using substantive examples from the field of social problems. For every method explored, there is a research example that fully reviews and illustrates the application of the particular method, before giving a full assessment of the method's strengths and weaknesses and latest developments. With chapters exploring survey interviews, in-depth interviews, narrative inquiry, institutional ethnography, participatory action research, auto-ethnography, Actor-Network Theory, experimental research, visual research methods, and research ethics, Researching Social Problems will appeal to scholars and students of sociology and politics working in the fields of research methods and social problems

Clinard and Quinney's criminal behavior systems by A. Javier Treviño( )

6 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An important classic, familiar to virtually all criminologists, Clinard and Quinney's Criminal Behavior Systems: A Revised Edition begins with a discussion of the construction types of crime and then formulates and utilizes a useful typology of criminal behavior systems. It classifies crime into seven categories, among them: violent personal crime, occasional property crime, public order crime, occupation crime, corporate crime, organized crime, and political crime. They examine the criminal career of the offender in each category, public and legal attitudes toward these individuals, support systems they may have, attitudes of the offenders, and other features. The Discussion of each category of crime is thorough and enlightening, and takes the reader far in understanding the huge problem of crime and establishing intelligent definitions to study it." -- from the back cover

Social control through law by Roscoe Pound( )

6 editions published between 1996 and 2017 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Social Control Through Law is remarkable in manner and style. Roscoe Pound shows himself to be a jurist, philosopher, and scientist. For Pound, the subject matter of law involves examining manifestations of human nature which require social control to assert or realize individual expectations. Pound formulates a list of social-ethical principles, with a three-fold purpose. First, they are meant to identify and explain human claims, demands, or interests of a given social order. Second, they express what the majority of individuals in a given society want the law to do. Third, they are meant to guide the courts in applying the law. Pound distinguishes between individual interests, public interests, and social interests. He warns that these three types of interests are overlapping and interdependent and that most claims, demands, and desires can be placed in all three categories. Pound's theory of social interests is crucial to his thinking about law and lies at the conceptual core of sociological jurisprudence. Pound explains that rights unlike interests, are plagued with a multiplicity of meanings. He rejects the idea of rights as being natural or inalienable, and argues that to the contrary, interests are natural. The contemporary significance of the book is aptly demonstrated by the skyrocketing rate of litigation in our postmodern society. As the influence of familial and religious institutions declines, the courts exert an unprecedented degree of control over the public and private lives of most Americans. Law is now the paramount agency of social control. In the new introduction, A. Javier TreviNo outlines the principal aspects of Roscoe Pound's legal philosophy as it is conveyed in several of his books, articles, and addresses, and shows their relationship to Social Control Through Law. This book is an insightful, concise summary of Pound's ideas that, after more than half a century, remains surprisingly fresh and relevant. It will doubtlessly continue to engage jurists, legal theorists, and sociologists for many years to come."--Provided by publisher
