The fourth edition of Symbols, Selves, and Social Reality takes an in-depth approach to introducing students to social psychology from a sociological perspective by focusing on the origins, guiding assumptions, methods, and empirical applications of the leading perspective in this field, symbolic interaction. Written for social psychology courses within the field of sociology, this text offers a comprehensive yet brief guide to symbolic interaction, while presenting strong, vivid examplesthat ground abstract concepts. The fourth edition of Symbols, Selves, and Social Reality provides a new chapter on emotions, which introduces students to interactionist approaches to emotion and provides students with explanations of currently salient emotion theories. The new edition also includes more coverage of race, class, and sexuality, making this textbook both accessible and significant to its inevitably diverse audience of undergraduates. The incorporation of real-world examples and topical issues lends to the contemporary focus of this textbook and allows students to draw connections and think critically about the world around them. The authors engage students with topics that are relevant to their everyday lives, such as self-presentation through social media. A chapter on collective action utilizes recent global events and social movements to analyze various phenomena of social interaction. The text integrates recent sociological studies throughout its discussions, offering a more research-oriented perspective than its competitors. All of these features are supplemented with helpful end-of-chapter pedagogical tools, such as questions for discussion and suggested readings, which also set this textbook apart from its competitors. The fourth edition not only offers a thorough introduction to social psychology and symbolic interactionism, but also interests students by appealing to their personal connections with the subject matter at hand.

Over the last two decades, researchers have made significant discoveries about the causes and origins of delinquency. Specifically, we have learned a great deal about adolescent development and its relationship to decision-making, about multiple factors that contribute to delinquency, and about the processes and contexts associated with the course of delinquent careers. Over the same period, public officials have made sweeping jurisprudential, jurisdictional, and procedural changes in our juvenile justice systems. The Oxford Handbook of Juvenile Crime and Juvenile Justice presents a timely compilation of state-of-the-art critical reviews of knowledge about causes of delinquency and their significance for justice policy, and about developments in the juvenile justice system to prevent and control youth crime. The first half of the handbook focuses on juvenile crime and examines trends and patterns in delinquency and victimization, explores causes of delinquency-at the individual, micro-social, and macro-social levels, and from natural and social science perspectives-and their implications for structuring a youth justice system. The second half of the handbook concentrates on juvenile justice and examines a range of issues-including the historical origins and re-invention of the juvenile court; juvenile offenders' mental health status and considerations of trial competence and culpability; intake, diversion, detention, and juvenile courts; and transfer/waiver strategies-and considers how the juvenile justice system itself influences delinquency. The Oxford Handbook of Juvenile Crime and Juvenile Justice provides a comprehensive overview of juvenile crime and juvenile justice administration by authors who are all leading scholars involved in cutting-edge research, and is an essential resource for scholars, students, and justice officials.

Dass ein Aufsatz die geistige und politische Welt grundlegend verändern kann, wird bei keinem Text so augenscheinlich wie bei diesem. Er ist Grundlage und Ausgangspunkt ökonomischer Systeme, politischer Konflikte und nicht zuletzt einer Vielzahl von Missverständnissen, die bis heute das politische Bewusstsein prägen.

Has constructionism become a victim of its own success? Scott Harris argues that, as more scholars adopt the approach, its key concepts are being used in differing and even contradictory ways - thus undercutting the vitality of its application as a research tool. To help clear the waters, he critically examines current debates and delivers a powerful call to launch a renewed constructionism. Harris traces how constructionism has evolved into two distinct perspectives - interpretative and objective - as he delves into timely topics such as social inequality, marital equality, and family diversity. He also evaluates each perspective's strengths, as well as its unique contributions. Sharpened definitions of the goals and vocabulary of both schools of thought, he demonstrates, give us a more lucid understanding of the pressing social issues of our time. Harris clarifies and assesses the power of differing constructionist approaches for understanding a range of critical social issues. -- Publisher description.

Mit einem aktuellen Vorwort zur Neuausgabe! Auf John Locke geht die Vorstellung zurück, der Mensch sei ein leeres Blatt, auf dem im Verlauf des Lebens die persönlichen Erfahrungen eingetragen werden. In seinem mittlerweile klassischen Buch »Das unbeschriebene Blatt. Die moderne Leugnung der menschlichen Natur« bezieht Bestseller-Autor Steven Pinker ganz die Gegenposition: Mit Witz, Brillanz und Gelehrsamkeit analysiert er die Geschichte dieser Idee und zeigt, wie falsch sie ist – mit allen kruden Auswirkungen auf Vorstellungen von Sexualität, Rasse, Kindererziehung, Intelligenz usw. Die Rolle der Gene wird systematisch unterschätzt; aber das bedeutet nicht, dass wir ihnen völlig ausgeliefert sind. Pinker zeigt nämlich auch, wie befreiend diese Sichtweise sein kann. Ein unterhaltsames und anschauliches Buch zur Natur des Menschen, ein echter Lesegenuss.
