The sexual organization of the city by Edward O Laumann( )

3 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 436 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We think of the city as a place where anything goes. Take the sensational fantasies and lurid antics of single women on Sex in the City or young men on Queer as Folk, and you might imagine the city as some kind of sexual playground--a place where you can have any kind of sex you want, with whomever you like, anytime or anywhere you choose. But in The Sexual Organization of the City, Edward Laumann and company argue that this idea is a myth. Drawing on extensive surveys and interviews with Chicago adults, they show that the city is--to the contrary--a place where sexual choices and options are con
The connection between female business-owners and female lawyers and its impact on making partner by Gina Marie Messamer( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The success of firm lawyers depends largely upon their ability to develop a clientele. Naturally, access to potential clients and the relationships between lawyers and their clients and potential clients are exceedingly important for client development. Various factors likely play into relationships between lawyers and business leaders, two important factors being homophily and in-group preferences. Both homophily and in-group preferences mechanisms would predict that law firms are more likely to assign clients to associates who bear certain similarities to those clients. Accordingly, associates who are more similar to the business community they serve are more likely to be assigned clients and awarded responsibility. In this way, a lawyers' success depends in part on the composition of the business community in which they operate. In making partnership decisions, law firms value associates' aptitude for client relations, thus incorporating these effects into promotion evaluations. This study asks the question: at the state level, to what extent does the success of female-owned businesses correlate to the success of female lawyers who work at law firms? Using a national survey of lawyers seven years after admission to the bar, logistic regression demonstrates that it is not the percentage of businesses in a state that are female-owned that influences the likelihood of making partner for female associates. Rather, the results show that the percentage of sales generated by female-owned businesses is the influential variable: as women generate a greater percent of a state's economic activity, female lawyers are in turn more likely to achieve the status of partner

Gender and networks in project teams : the case of a troubled insurance and asset management company by Vernon Anthony Woodley( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thus consistent with the social capital argument, self-managing project teams reduced gender segregation, provided access to important informal networks and the informal networks influenced employee work outcomes. However, gender mattered as well. Women were more likely to share workgroups and less likely to be in upper management. Women were also less likely to have same-sex informal networks within their subdivision after accounting for tie importance; however, they were more likely to have same-sex ties in other subdivisions. Women also reported lower job commitment and saw fewer opportunities for mobility at Finco in comparison to men. Hence, while participation in cross-cutting, self-managing teams does improve women's work outcomes, gender differences persist in positions and attitudes
Intimacy unbound : the structure of intimate ties in Chicago by Anthony Paik( Book )

2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the last quarter of a century, Americans have increasingly formed intimate relations outside the purview of traditional social controls, such as the institution of marriage and networks of kin, thereby raising questions about the nature of negotiated arrangements occurring between intimate partners. This dissertation examines the manner in which members of an intimate partnership adopt a variety of dyadic and extradyadic practices, or cohesive practices, that are typically associated with the signaling of commitment. Drawing on the 1995--1997 Chicago Health and Social Life Survey, a representative sample of the adult population of the City of Chicago and its inner suburbs, a latent class model of patterns of cohesive practices shows three distinct types: tight-knit, loosely coupled, and detached intimate ties. While the tight-knit class corresponds with a companionate model of intimate relations, the other two represent alternatives associated with lower levels of relationship commitment. Loosely coupled relationships are generally nonexclusive yet still involve a degree of dyadic attachment. Conversely, detached relationships are exclusive, like tight-knit relationships, but incorporate little emotional attachment. Analyses of the determinants show that membership in the loosely coupled and the detached alternatives is organized, to some extent, by differences in attitudes, social opportunities, relationship characteristics, and race/ethnicity. In addition, since nonmonogamy is an important feature of some contemporary relationships, jealousy is likely to be an important emotional consequence. Analyses show that commitment plays an important organizing role in the social distribution of jealousy and whether jealousy is expressed as violence. Taken together, this research demonstrates the significance of the social organization of commitments by traditional social structures, like marriage and social networks, and by the structure of cohesive practices

A tale of force : examining factors that influence police officer use of force by Kayla Preito-Hodge( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Police officer use of force in the United States is a growing concern to the American people. Although not based on solid empirical evidence, President Obama's Task Force on 21st Century Policing proposed several policies that address violent policing and the use of excessive force. In this study, I examine the relationship between policy recommendations and variations across police departments in their reported use of force. This study draws on measures of use of force, community policing, education, and officer demographics from the 2013 Law Enforcement Management and Administrative Statistics (LEMAS) survey, combined with county-level demographic information from the American Community Survey, and information on local crime rates from the FBI's Uniform Crime Report. Cross-sectional findings reveal that more college-educated officers are associated with lower counts of use of force, that officer diversity is not strongly related to use of force, and that most community policing indicators are associated with higher counts in use of force

Life course effects of polyvictimization : associates with depression and crime by Richard Carbonaro( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Exposure to multiple forms of victimization has been shown to have increasingly negative outcomes, but their unique trajectory-setting effects have been largely unexplored. Using a life course approach, this paper examines the trajectory-setting effects of childhood polyvictimization into early adulthood. I use a nationwide sample including 3,652 respondents after cleaning and preparation. Seemingly unrelated regressions were used to predict depression and criminal behavior in childhood and adulthood. Results suggest childhood polyvictimization sets children on a negative trajectory which grows increasingly worse through the life course. Researchers and interventions should take these trajectory-setting effects into account when attempting to aid polyvictims
Career trajectories among lawyers : the evolving role of social capital by Kenneth Jan-Michael Sanchagrin( )

Finally, the findings also demonstrate that human, social, and cultural capital remain important predictors of career success during the transition to partnership in private firms
Social capital and immigrant integration : the role of social capital in labor market and health outcomes by Mesay Andualem Tegegne( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The findings also show that this double disadvantage is explained away by group differences in network ethnic diversity, and that race and immigrant status are a factor in determining the return from network ethnic diversity in terms of network quality, which is reflective of the extant socioeconomic stratification system in the United States. In the second study, I use a nationally representative data of immigrants from the NIS (2003), to examine the link between reliance of new immigrants on "bonding" social capital for job search and two indicators of labor market performance: earnings and occupational prestige. I find that while using a "relative" to find a job generally has a negative effect on both earnings and occupational prestige, this effect is not shared across all immigrants, which explains inconsistent findings in prior studies of the role of co-ethnic social capital in the labor market outcomes of Hispanic and Asian immigrants. In the third study, I turn my attention to the immigrant health literature, which has largely focused on the acculturation-health relationship and largely ignored the significance of network processes, particularly the interethnic integration of new immigrants, for the short-term and long-term health outcomes of immigrants. I use longitudinal data from the NIS (2003, 2007), which includes various measures of health status and behaviors, and examine the contemporaneous and longitudinal associations between interethnic social capital and health. I find positive cross-sectional associations with negative health behaviors (smoking, drinking and dietary change), on the one hand, and positive long-term (lagged) effects on health status (self-rated health and the incidence of chronic diseases), on the other. These results find evidence for the time-dependent health implications of interethnic network integration for the health status of immigrants in the United States
Stigma in class : mental illness, social status, and tokenism in elite college culture by Katie R Billings( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The majority of mental illness on college campuses remains untreated, and mental illness stigma is the most cited explanation for not seeking mental health treatment. Working-class college students are not only at greater risk of mental illness, but also are less likely to seek mental health treatment and hold more stigmatized views toward people with mental illness compared to affluent college students. Research on college culture suggests that elite college contexts may be associated with greater stigmatization of mental illness. This study bridges the social status and college culture literatures by asking - does social status and college context together predict students' mental health attitudes? By surveying 757 undergraduates at an Ivy League university and a Non-Ivy League university, I found that 1) elite college students had greater mental illness stigma than non-elite students, 2) social status was positively related to personal stigma and negatively related to perceived stigma, and 3) low social status students at the Ivy League university had greater personal mental illness stigma compared to their counterparts at the Non-Ivy League university. Low social status students' perceptions of themselves as social status minorities may be responsible for their greater stigmatization of mental illness in the elite college context. These findings suggest that increasing socioeconomic diversity on college campuses may improve lower social status students' mental health attitudes
The environmental Kuznets curve hypothesis as a problematic : beyond "falsificationism" by Paul Erb( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Halfway into its third decade, the debate surrounding the environmental Kuznets curve (EKC) hypothesis has stalled with political economists and socio-ecologists ascendant and modernization theorists scrambling to give their apparently moribund perspective new life. But beyond the rise and fall of the EKC, there remains a second-order question and decades of data: how do the theoretical perspectives of these contenders shape what their protagonists do and don't see? How have they mistaken episodes of "talking past each other" for genuine dialogue? Which perspective has had the biggest impact on the other's way of thinking? A qualitative and quantitative analysis compares the top-ranking journals in economics with interdisciplinary journals of environmental economics revealing a categorical divergence in the types of critical thought deployed in the EKC debate over an almost 15 year period. The few articles appearing in the top ranking economic journals systematically fail to grasp the fundamentals of ecology which is evident in both their measurements and conclusions. I offer an abridged discussion of the critiques socio-ecology presents contemporary economics as what, in Kuhnian terminology, may well be described as a discipline in the crisis moment of a paradigm shift in no particular direction. I then conclude by siding with Habermas and Adorno against Popper's ideologically impoverished "falsifactionism": progress in science depends as much on a theory of ideological critique as it does on the acquisition of technical knowledge. My intent has been to argue that ideological critique is empirically possible as the history of thought
The effect of social networks on self-care behaviors and health outcomes among older people living with multiple chronic conditions by Raeann G LeBlanc( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Background: Older adults are the fastest growing segment of the population in the United States. By 2030, 72.1 million Americans will be over sixty-five years of age and many live with and manage multiple chronic conditions. Self-care behaviors are a priority to effectively manage chronic conditions, yet a gap exists in our understanding of how social networks influence the outcomes of self-care behavior and health within the context of aging and managing multiple chronic conditions. Objective: The aim of this study was to determine how social network features and functions influence self-care behaviors and health among community dwelling older adults with multiple chronic conditions. Design: This study integrated an explanatory sequential mixed methods design. Methods: A cross-sectional sample of eighty-nine community dwelling older adults participated. Descriptive statistics were used to describe social networks. Bivariate correlations and regression statistics were used to examine the relationships of social networks with the dependent variables of self-care behaviors and health. Qualities that emphasize the contexts expanded the analysis of the survey data. and social support. Results: Ties strength and social support predicted the outcome of therapeutic self-care, mental health, sense of control and attributed dignity. Distinctions between tangible support and psychosocial support are made. Thematic analysis expanded understanding on network size, psychosocial support, activation of support and interaction frequency and type. Conclusions: Social networks influence self-care behaviors and mental health, sense of control and attributed dignity. In living with multiple chronic conditions, this research proposes new ways to understand social members in creating supportive self-care networks in older age
Do narcissistic CEOs really care about corporate social responsibility? : the moderating role of outside board of directors by Jin Sun Ahn( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

During recent years, there has been a growing interest in CEO's narcissism across a range of disciplines. Various scholars strongly believe that CEO's narcissism is a compelling element that should not be overlooked when analyzing various organizational outcomes and strategies. Research on CEO's narcissism has mainly focused on its negative implications on organization outcomes. However, much less attention has been given to its effect on corporate social responsibility (CSR). This study explores the relationship between CEO's narcissism and stakeholder-driven CSR/social issue participation (SIP). while taking into account the moderating role of outside board of directors. Using a sample of publicly traded U.S restaurants, the results support that outside board of directors play a moderating role on the relationship between CEO's narcissism and 1) stakeholder driven CSR and 2) social issue participation (SIP)
