The Myth of Individualism

Society in Focus

How Social Forces Shape Our Lives

An Introduction to Sociology

THIRD EDITION

EIGHTH EDITION

By Peter L. Callero

By William E. Thompson, Joseph V. Hickey, and Mica L. Thompson

“Peter Callero has scored again with the third edition of The Myth of Individualism. As before, this text is highly recommended as a supplement to an introductory text in sociology. Callero has produced an extremely readable overview of some difficult theoretical and conceptual problematics in sociology. . . . This text is a true pleasure to read.” —Dean Braa, Western Oregon University

Examining the role of mass media and information technology in contemporary society, this introductory sociology text emphasizes the increasing diversity and globalization of societies everywhere.

This text is a wonderful, concise introduction to sociology and sociological thinking, showing readers how social forces shape our lives and the world. Revised and updated throughout, the third edition of this powerful book continues to challenge the common belief that human behavior is the result of free choices made by autonomous actors, but rather shows the many ways that people are naturally social, interdependent, and shaped by social forces. Filled with engaging stories and deep research, The Myth of Individualism helps readers begin to develop a sociological imagination. By acknowledging the limits of individual effort and control, we gain insight into our own lives and the lives of others. Peter L. Callero is professor of sociology at Western Oregon University.

Society Explained An Introduction to Sociology By Nathan Rousseau (Jacksonville University)

A 2014 CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title

A practical guide to research, reading, and writing in sociology Find out more on page 29

Eduardo Bonilla-Silva’s acclaimed Racism without Racists documents how, beneath our contemporary conversation about race, there lies a full-blown arsenal of arguments, phrases, and stories that whites use to account for—and ultimately justify— racial inequalities. The fifth edition of this provocative book makes clear that color blind racism is as insidious now as ever. It features new material on our current racial climate, including the Black Lives Matter movement; a significantly revised chapter that examines the Obama presidency, the 2016 election, and Trump’s presidency; and a new chapter addressing what readers can do to confront racism—both personally and on a larger structural level.

Social Things An Introduction to the Sociological Life FIFTH EDITION

By Charles Lemert (Wesleyan University)

Eduardo Bonilla-Silva is professor of sociology at Duke University. The recipient of the American Sociological Association’s CoxJohnson-Frasier award and the Lewis A. Coser award for theoretical agenda-setting, he is author or co-editor of several books, including White Logic, White Methods. He is president (2017-2018) of the American Sociological Association and the Southern Sociological Society.

“I love Racism without Racists. I use it in my undergraduate stratification course, and students are split on how they receive the book. Half love it, the other half hate it. Either way, it makes them think about race and racism. Whether the material in the book confirms their general viewpoint, or they spend time and effort trying to refute the book, the students are engaged with the material. I couldn’t ask for more.” —Mitchell Peck, University of Oklahoma “Students love this book—it is often life-changing for them. Both students of color and white students see themselves in this book, with each gaining more meaningful understanding of racial context in our times and what they can do for racial justice.” —Karen S. Glover, California State University, San Marcos “From the Black Lives Matter movement to the unexpected election of Donald Trump, recent events have made undeniably clear the continuing significance of race and racism in the United States. Updated with new material, this fifth edition of Eduardo Bonilla-Silva’s now-classic Racism without Racists is thus more than ever essential reading for understanding the racial realities of a country in denial about its past and present.” —Charles W. Mills, Graduate Center CUNY “Eduardo Bonilla-Silva rocked the sociological landscape with his book Racism without Racists, providing insight about U.S. race matters in contemporary times. In this new edition, Bonilla-Silva once again confronts naysayers who continue to argue that racism is a thing of the past, or who ‘trumpet’ that what we are witnessing is a ‘return of the racists.’ With updated and timely new material, this is a book you’ll want to pick up for your family, friends, and neighbors!” —David G. Embrick, University of Connecticut

Race and Ethnicity

Race in Society The Enduring American Dilemma By Margaret L. Andersen

Rowman & Littlefield 2017 • 384 pages 978-1-4422-5803-7 • $70.00 / £47.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-5802-0 • $125.00 / £85.00 • Hardback 978-1-4422-5804-4 • $66.00 / £44.95 • eBook

Race in Society is a comprehensive, but brief, book that introduces readers to current research scholarship on race, emphasizing the socially constructed basis of race and the persistence of racial inequality in U.S. institutions. The book is anchored in contemporary social science scholarship and is written in a narrative style that makes it accessible to students and a general readership. Four themes guide the organization of the book, including • • • •

the social construction of race and ethnicity, as they evolve within systems of power and privilege; the social dynamics of prejudice, bias and racism, including colorblind racism; the multiple dimensions of racial stratification in U.S. social institutions; differing strategies for social change, especially as the United States becomes increasingly diverse by race and ethnicity.

Margaret L. Andersen is the Edward F. and Elizabeth Goodman Rosenberg Professor of Sociology at the University of Delaware where she also holds joint appointments in Black American Studies and Women’s Studies. She is a member of the National Advisory Board for Stanford University’s Center for Comparative Studies in Race and Ethnicity and is the Past-Vice President of the American Sociological Association and Past President of the Eastern Sociological Society from which she received ESS Merit Award.

“Margaret L. Andersen’s Race in Society is an exceptional text on racial inequality in America. Reading this book one comes to understand that racial antagonisms are products of situations—including those that are historical, economic, political, and social. Given Andersen’s astute discussion of these situations in capturing America’s unfolding racial dynamics, as well as her conceptual clarity, I strongly recommend Race in Society to teachers, students, and others seeking to understand an enduring and important national problem.” —William Julius Wilson, Harvard University “Race in Society is an extraordinary text that will become a classic. This compelling, comprehensive treatment of systemic racism in America is sociology at its best. Grounded in empirical work and informed by theory, Andersen speaks directly to students, showing how race and racism shape society and affect us all.” —Maxine Baca Zinn, Michigan State University “Margaret Andersen has given us a beautifully written and accessible book about some of the most pressing challenges facing us as a country today. It offers a comprehensive review of sociological theorizing and research on race, explaining what race is, why and how it still matters today, and how we can think about strategies for change. The book enables a wide range of students to grapple with race and racism fully, honestly, and substantively and provides instructors with a number of tools to maximize the learning experience. Professor Andersen has given us a text that manages to be simultaneously uncompromising and user-friendly. I have no doubt it will become a new favorite for instructors of racial/ethnic dynamics. Bravo!” —Amanda Lewis, University of Illinois

Dobratz, Iowa State University “American Swastika is one of the best researched accounts of Aryan groups yet. This book is hands down the most effective for communicating information to students about how Aryan groups understand their beliefs, behaviors, and organizations. It is indispensable.” —Lisa L.

White Privilege and Black Rights The Injustice of U.S. Police Racial Profiling and Homicide By Naomi Zack (University of Oregon) “We associate philosophy with insights into timeless matters, but philosophy is also capable of sharply illuminating the here and now. In this courageous intervention in the debate on a subject that has galvanized national attention—the police killings of unarmed young black men—philosopher Naomi Zack challenges conventional wisdom both black and white, urging a rethinking of our conceptions of white privilege and the best approach to theorizing social justice.” —Charles W. Mills, CUNY Graduate Center “Examining racial profiling in American policing, Naomi Zack argues against white privilege discourse while introducing a new theory of applicative justice. Deepening understanding without abandoning hope, Zack shows why it is more important to consider black rights than white privilege as we move forward through today’s culture of inequality.

“The Library of African-American Biography is to be commended for giving readers an accessible biography of one of the most prolific writers of the 19th and 20th centuries and a constant champion of civil rights. W. E. B. Du Bois deserves this sympathetic telling of his life story, a 95-year life that had many phases, bridging Reconstruction and the March on Washington. Recommended.” —CHOICE

African Independence is a dynamic discussion of how Africa shapes world events today. Tukufu Zuberi weaves interview excerpts and stories from many Africans he has met—from refugees to heads of state—with key events in African history to show the importance of understanding Africa today.

W. E. B. Du Bois was one of the most prolific African-American authors, scholars, and leaders of the twentieth century. In this book, Alexander’s traces the development of Du Bois’ thought over time.

“Through captivating interview excerpts and a sophisticated analysis that shows great depth and sensitivity, Harris sheds new light on the often overlooked complexities of growing up in the Black middle class. The Cosby Cohort is groundbreaking and is essential reading for anyone interested in the growing heterogeneity of the African American community and the implications of the increasing class diversity for intra-racial relations, group cohesion, and Black identity development. This book will no doubt become an instant classic.” —Nikki Khanna, University of Vermont The Cosby Cohort examines the now-grown children who were raised in the black middle class. This probing book studies how their parents established their middle class position, how they interact with white America, the pressures placed upon them by their parents, how they connect with African Americans of other social classes, and more.

The Gender of Crime

Seeing Straight

SECOND EDITION

An Introduction to Gender and Sexual Privilege By Jean Halley and Amy Eshleman

By Dana M. Britton, Shannon K. Jacobsen, and Grace E. Howard “The robust fact that gender (particularly masculinity) is a leading correlate of crime is confronted by Britton, Jacobsen, and Howard in a way that is accessible, compelling, and insightful. Weaving a tapestry from existing research, the authors explore important social patterns of crime offending, victimization, and the social institutions that reproduce gender inequalities. Readers will not forget the immutable lessons found within this book.” —Kimberly J. Cook, University of North Carolina Wilmington The Gender of Crime introduces readers to how gender shapes our understanding of every aspect of crime. The second edition includes analysis of LGBTQ issues, gender and crime on college campuses, and discussions of how police officers handle gendered crime. Dana M. Britton is professor of labor studies and employment relations and director of the Center for Women and Work at the Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations. Shannon K.

“Seeing Straight is a rewarding—and challenging—book designed to take the young adult from passive acceptance of gender norms and sex roles, through the long and exciting history of awakening of identity, sexuality, dissent, freedom, and into adult respect for the variety of humanity. The volume covers stereotyping and prejudice, sex and gender, queer theory, gender privilege and heteronormativity, what is normal, what is deviant, what is queer and what is courage. The authors emphasize opportunity, empowerment, sex positivity, and the costs of gender and sexual oppression. This book will improve the lives of the students who read it.” —Chris Crandall, University of Kansas Seeing Straight introduces students to key concepts in gender and sexuality through the lens of privilege and power. The book addresses tough topics like hate, violence and privilege, and institutionalized heteronormativity. This book is an ideal introduction to gender and sexuality that encourages students to question their own assumptions. Jean Halley is associate professor of sociology at the College of Staten Island of the City University of New York. Amy Eshleman is professor of psychology at Wagner College.

De-militarizing Masculinities in the Age of Empire

Transitioning

By Simona Sharoni (State University of New York, Plattsburgh) Feminist scholars have theorized extensively about how the military, war, and especially the combat experience enhance the militarization of masculinities, but less scholarly attention has been devoted to men whose identities were highly militarized in the context of a political conflict and turbulence. Based on over two decades of extensive field research in Israel, Palestine, the North of Ireland, and the United States, this study charts the processes and practices involved in the militarization and de-militarization of men and masculinities.

Matter, Gender, Thought By EJ Gonzalez-Polledo (University of Sheffield, UK) “In this conceptually and ethnographically rich exercise in thinking ‘with’ transgender rather than thinking ‘about’ transgender, EJ GonzalezPolledo explores how ‘transitioning’ is not something only trans people do in the process of moving away from their birth-assigned sex. It is something that all materiality does—perpetually, inexorably, unavoidably—in the ever-unfolding dynamic processes of being. . . . Read this book if you’ve ever wondered how deep the transgender rabbit-hole can go.” —Susan Stryker, University of Arizona This book is an anthropological analysis of female-to-male gender transition in the UK. The book counters assumptions around identity, the body and gender to explore transitioning as an open-ended process that often defies political and social conventions. It will be relevant to students and scholars interested in gender and subjectivity, biomedicine, the body, sexuality, social theory, transgender studies and queer theory.

From the Local to the Global By James W. Messerschmidt (University of Southern Maine) “A leading figure in the interdisciplinary field of men’s and masculinity studies, Messerschmidt takes a novel approach in theorizing on masculinity: he looks at its social construction over the life course. Highly recommended.”—CHOICE In this book, James W. Messerschmidt explores how masculinity is created through life histories on very different subjects—genderqueers, boys who have been bullied at school, and presidents—that illustrate theory in action. Taken together, Masculinities in the Making is a compelling insight into masculinity today.

“Children’s Rights is a remarkable achievement. It is unique in presenting contrasting perspectives on the various issues related to children’s rights. While on one hand discussing the place of children in human rights theories, it also gives a number of very concrete and heart-wrenching stories. While providing a narrative with a broad historical and geographical scope, the book sets out the most important contemporary problems children face in societies around the world with examples from education, slavery, and the right to vote. And most striking, while addressing a litany of problems and challenges facing children even now, Wall strikes an optimistic tone throughout the book, including in the last chapter when looking forward to a better future for children. This book is indispensable to anybody who wants a better understanding of children’s rights in all its facets.” —Joseph Rikhof, University of Ottawa This accessible and authoritative book provides the first systematic overview of the global children’s rights movement. It introduces both beginners and experts to child and youth rights in all their theoretical, historical, cultural, political, and practical complexity. In the process, the book examines key controversies about globalization, cultural relativism, social justice, power, economics, politics, freedom, ageism, and more. Combining vivid examples with cutting-edge scholarship, Children’s Rights: Today’s Global Challenge lifts up the rights of the youngest third of humanity as the major human rights challenge of the twenty-first century.

Deep Inequality Understanding the New Normal and How to Challenge It By Earl Wysong and Robert Perrucci

DEEP

INEQUALITY Understanding the New Normal and How to Challenge It

Deep Inequality looks behind statistics to understand not only wealth inequality but rising disparities in other elements of life—from school to the media. The authors argue that inequality has become so pervasive that it is the new normal. This book explains the changing landscape of inequality to help readers see society in a new way. Earl Wysong is professor of sociology at Indiana University Kokomo. He is past president of the Indiana Academy of the Social Sciences. Robert Perrucci is professor of sociology at Purdue University and past president of the Society for the Study of Social Problems.

Being Unequal How Identity Helps Make and Break Power and Privilege By Peter L. Callero “Peter Callero covers a large amount of conceptual ground in a concise and engaging manner. The writing style is exceptionally clear, and the concepts and examples are captivating. Being Unequal is a teaching tool that successfully provides a textbook summary of existing research, but scholars will also read and cite this book.” —Scott R. Harris, Saint Louis University

Failure to Adjust How Americans Got Left Behind in the Global Economy By Edward Alden “[Alden] demonstrates how four decades of market-friendly economic and trade policies have been insufficiently inclusive, setting the stage for the populist backlash we’re now experiencing.” —Sebastian Mallaby, The Wall Street Journal

“Linking everything from Jay-Z’s misogynistic lyrics to Emory University’s denial of slave labor, Peter Callero once again shows us why identities matter and how they influence social outcomes, and why he is one of the key social psychologists to read on this topic.” —Rashawn Ray, University of Maryland We may think we control our own destinies, but who we are, how we think, what we feel, and how we act are shaped by multiple, intersecting identities that have different amounts of power and value in our society. Being Unequal explores how identity categories associated with race, class, gender, and sexuality help shape inequality. This concise and accessible book asks: How is identity experienced? How does identity help reproduce inequality? How does identity help resist inequality? What is the relationship between micro and macro inequality—in other words, how do our personal experiences shape larger social forces? Being Unequal argues that identities matter because they are a critical part of a complex social process in which everyday interactions contribute to larger systems of structural inequality. By recognizing the links between identity and inequality, Being Unequal also highlights the power of collective action to resist and oppose domination and exploitation. Filled with engaging real-world examples ranging from the social construction of momentary high school cliques to the emergence of momentous social movements, Being Unequal is a powerful introduction to social identities and the ways they shape our world.

Failure to Adjust presents an especially timely analysis of the trade policies of the Obama administration, and discusses how America can reassert itself as the leader in setting rules for international economic competition that would spread the benefits of global trade and investment more broadly.

Emerging from Turbulence

Email Nancy at nroberts@rowman.com

Boeing and Stories of the American Workplace Today By Leon Grunberg and Sarah Moore (both, University of Puget Sound) “An elegant, carefully crafted book, Emerging from Turbulence portrays the depth and scope of self-worth that people draw from the social relations and respect that they find at work. However, by comparing workers with different lengths of service, Grunberg and Moore document notably different changes in orientations toward work and the self when a ‘family’ company eliminates its community fabric and becomes a honed instrument of capitalism contributing to the increasingly stratified distribution of wealth in America. The book offers a comprehensive sense of how employees facing such change turn inward in seeking senses of personal value.” —Paul M. Roman, University of Georgia The book looks at workers in three stages of their careers (early career, midcareer, and retirement), sheds light on generational differences in the workplace, and addresses issues such as job training and work moving overseas. Emerging from Turbulence takes readers inside profound workplace changes and shows both the personal and the national impact of today’s realities.

Understanding Globalization

A Critical Introduction By Elina Penttinen (University of Helsinki) and Anitta Kynsilehto (University of Tampere)

The Social Consequences of Political, Economic, and Environmental Change FIFTH EDITION

By Robert K. Schaeffer (California Polytechnic State University) “Gender and Mobility brings a critical approach to the study of gender and migration, using feminist theories to understand how gender shapes global mobilities, and how local, national and international policy frameworks impact on these. I would highly recommend this book to all those interested in migration, mobility and gender relations.” —Jane Freedman, Université Paris 8 “Penttinen and Kynsilehto take us on a scholarly feminist journey that maps gender and mobility in deeply empathetic, challenging and unsettling ways.” —Swati Parashar, University of Gothenburg, Sweden This is a comprehensive guide to studying gender and mobility, unpacking key themes and theoretical approaches, ranging from queer studies, global political economy, migration and border studies, feminist policy analysis, research on violence, and feminist security studies.

“Understanding Globalization is an exceptional book that thoroughly covers contemporary issues relating to globalization that students find extremely readable.” —Ione DeOllos, Ball State University “This book is wonderful. It presents a very clear history of modern globalization and the role the United States has played in this process.

Social Movements and Global Social Change

Towards Corporeal Cosmopolitanism

The Rising Tide By Robert K. Schaeffer

Performing Decolonial Solidarities By Anjana Raghavan (Sheffield Hallam University, UK)

“Schaeffer identifies a significant set of global social changes over the past 200 years and then considers the role of diverse social movements in shaping them. . . . In addition to focusing first on social change and then examining how social movements contributed to it, a distinctive feature of this work is its consideration of how both liberty and equality have advanced in some ways, while subordination and inequality have endured in others. . . . The author takes an optimistic long view of social movements and social change ‘tempered by a realistic appreciation of its limits.’ Highly recommended.”—CHOICE

This book explores the ways in which existing narratives of cosmopolitanism are often organized around European and American discourses of human rights and universalism, which allow little room for the articulation of an affective, embodied and subaltern politics. Rowman & Littlefield International August 2017 • 240 pages 978-1-78348-887-2 • $39.95 • Paper 978-1-78348-795-0 • $120.00 / £80.00 • Hardback 978-1-78348-796-7 • $38.99 / £24.95 • eBook

The book examines different types of social movements, including those often ignored in social change textbooks, such as riots, migration, and disorganized protest. It also looks at citizens’ rights and inequality in connection to social movements and change. The book features global perspectives and examples throughout.

Globalization and American Popular Culture FOURTH EDITION

By Lane Crothers (Illinois State University) Previous edition praise: “In crisp and accessible language, the author distills central arguments in the study of global media and popular culture in their overlapping national and global political-economic context and legalregulatory environments, often with a historical perspective.” —Global Media Studies Now in an updated edition, this insightful book explores the ways U.S. movies, music, TV, fast food, sports, and even Hardbacking styles have molded and continue to influence globalization. Concluding with a projection of pop culture’s future impact, Crothers argues strongly for its central role in shaping global politics and economic development.

Focusing on the intersection between globalization and migration, this text traces a dynamic process that has incorporated millions of migrants into a vast economic marketplace. Dickinson explores the contradictions that make it easier for goods and capital to circulate while simultaneously making it harder for people to migrate.

By Cynthia Enloe (Clark University) “Cynthia Enloe’s vibrant and inspiring prose takes us on a global journey of the everyday to uncover the gendered dynamics of militarization in all sorts of unexpected places— from the militarized politics of the sneaker to the wielding of masculinity in Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo to the rise of camouflage as fashion to women peace activists mobilizing in Japan. Enloe uses her sharp feminist curiosity to remind us that we should always beware of the adjectives ‘natural’ or ‘trivial,’ for these often obscure how militarization works. As always, Enloe’s work is essential for anyone who wants to question the status quo in global politics and is a call to action for those who want to promote change for a more peaceful, just, and feminist world.” —Daniel Conway, University of Westminster “Cynthia Enloe continues her quest to investigate the patriarchal dimensions of militarization and globalization. Using feminist curiosity she skillfully guides the reader in a series of insightful analyses that unravel the relations between globally militarized structures and the personal, even trivial, constructs of everyday lives. With brilliance and clarity, she shows how masculinities and femininities are tied to processes of militarization and demilitarization in diverse locations across the globe. [A] must read.” —Annica Kronsell, Lund University

Written by one of the world’s leading feminist scholars, this masterful and provocative new, updated edition charts how women’s desires to be patriotic yet feminine and men’s fears of being feminized are being manipulated to globalize militarism—and thus what it will take to roll back militarization anywhere.

Constructive Conflicts

Perspectives in Waging Conflicts Constructively

From Escalation to Resolution FIFTH EDITION

Cases, Concepts, and Practice Edited by Bruce W. Dayton and Louis Kriesberg

By Louis Kriesberg and Bruce W. Dayton Constructive Conflicts provides a framework for analyzing social conflicts of all kinds, with emphasis on how conflicts can lead to positive change. The fifth edition of this comprehensive and highly-regarded book has been updated and revised throughout. The book introduces key principles, uses a wide range of case studies, applies core ideas about conflicts, synthesizes interdisciplinary perspectives, and shares the latest research. Louis Kriesberg and Bruce W. Dayton examine the many factors that cause social conflicts to move more or less constructively through a series of stages: emergence, escalation, de-escalation, becoming transformed and settled, and often emerging again in new forms. This fifth edition pays increased attention to the significant role of social movements and non-governmental organizations as conflict actors, the use of non-coercive but persuasive means for both escalating and deescalating conflicts, and the kinds of post-conflict activities that are most likely to result in enduring peace. Louis Kriesberg is professor emeritus of sociology and Maxwell Professor Emeritus of Social Conflict Studies at Syracuse University. He is the founding director of the Program on the Analysis and Resolution of Conflicts and past president of the Society for the Study of Social Problems. Bruce W. Dayton is associate professor of peacebuilding and conflict transformation and director of the CONTACT Peacebuilding Program at the SIT Graduate Institute, School for International Training.

Perspectives in Waging Conflicts Constructively offers diverse perspectives on how large-scale conflicts can be conducted with more positive benefits, minimizing their destructiveness. Distinguished analysts and practitioners review the core ideas of the innovative “constructive conflict approach” and examine cases where conflicts have been waged with fewer destructive consequences. An introduction presents key concepts in constructive conflict resolution, and chapters offer cases of these theories in action. Cases feature both global and regional examples ranging from Israel to North Korea. The book also contains recommendations for policy makers, nongovernmental organizations, and citizens about how stakeholders at all levels might help avoid destructive patterns that are common in largescale conflict while working for positive change. Contributors include Patrick G. Coy, Esra Cuhadar, Bruce W. Dayton, Martina Fischer, Galia Golan, Louis Kriesberg, Christopher Mitchell, Robert Murrett, Thania Paffenholz, Lee Smithey, and Steven Zunes.

Memory, Truth, and Justice in Contemporary Latin America

Participation and Non-Participation in Student Activism

Edited by Roberta Villalón (St. John’s University)

Paths and Barriers to Mobilizing Young People for Political Action By Alexander Hensby (University of Kent, UK)

“This invaluable text offers a nuanced and multifaceted view of the second wave of memory politics in Latin America. Spanning the varied yet aligned contexts from Argentina to Chile and Guatemala to Uruguay, among others, the book is an enormously useful introduction to the contradictory, complex, and intersecting mobilizations of memory, human rights, reconciliation, and social justice that have defined Latin America’s relationship to its history of violence and state terror.” —Marita Sturken, New York University This powerful text provides the first systematic analysis of the second wave of memory and justice mobilization throughout Latin America. Pairing clear explanations of concepts and debates with case studies, the book offers a unique opportunity for students to understand and interpret the history and politics of Latin American countries.

Terrorism and the Politics of Fear SECOND EDITION

By David L. Altheide (emeritus, Arizona State University) “Unfortunately, if ever a book on the expanding plethora of frights and worries brought to us by media prevarication and manipulation was needed, it is now. But fortunately, David Altheide, in extending his pioneering work on media and society, helps meet that need. . . . Necessary reading for anyone who listens, watches or reads!” —Gary T.

Sociology of Religion

Sociology of Religion Sacred Fury Understanding Religious Violence THIRD EDITION

By Charles Selengut (Morris College) “This will be a helpful volume both for classroom use and public discussion. It helps us think anew about the causes of religious violence and how we should appropriately respond.” — Mark Juergensmeyer, University of California, Santa Barbara

Latino Protestants in America

American Catholics in Transition

Growing and Diverse By Mark T. Mulder (Calvin College), Aida I. Ramos (George Fox University), and Gerardo Martí (Davidson College)

By William V. D’Antonio (Catholic University of America), Michele Dillon (University of New Hampshire), and Mary L. Gautier (Georgetown University)

“The fine mix of fresh quantitative data and engaging qualitative case studies gives a rich feel for the diversity of Latino Protestant communities, from a Dutch-Latino Reformed church in Iowa to the non-denominational church in Los Angeles that encourages members to ‘transcend’ ethnicity. Additionally, the chapter on Latino Protestants’ political and social engagement is required reading for anyone interested in likely Latino voting patterns in 2018 and beyond.” —Publishers Weekly

“American Catholics in Transition is an important and timely monograph for scholars of religion and social change; a useful tool for ministers in understanding the complexities of their congregations; and a model for the presentation and analysis of survey research. D’Antonio, Dillon, and Gautier not only review the trends of change and continuity among American Catholics, they also make sense of them and boldly point out critical issues related to the infrastructure and mission of the U.S. Catholic Church in the years to come.” —Sociology of Religion: A Quarterly Review

“Growing, diverse, and little understood—Latino Protestants receive here a thorough and much-needed examination. Drawing together existing historical, survey, and ethnographic data, the authors add systematic new observations from a team of research fellows. The result is a book that will be the go-to reference in the years ahead.” —Nancy Ammerman, Boston University Researchers estimate that by 2030 half of all Latinos in America will be Protestant. Latino Protestants in America takes readers inside the numbers to highlight the many reasons Latino Protestants are growing, the diversity of this group, and the implications of this growth on politics, economics, religion, and more.

“American Catholics in Transition addresses what it means to identify as a Catholic in the United States in the contemporary period in a very engaging and thorough manner. . . . The research and studies by D’Antonio, Dillon, and Gautier have made a significant contribution to the field, this book being the latest. American Catholics in Transition is as much about trends and the changing face of America as it is about Catholics. Sociologists, scholars in American Studies, gender studies, and ethnic studies will find this book loaded with rich detail and the analysis and interpretation to be compelling.” —Contemporary Sociology Rowman & Littlefield 2013 • 216 pages 978-1-4422-1992-2 • $33.00 / £22.95 • Paperback 978-1-4422-1991-5 • $92.00 / £65.00 • Hardback 978-1-4422-1993-9 • $31.00 / £21.95 • eBook

The third edition features new material on the relationship of race and ethnicity to religion, the perceived rises of both secularism and fundamentalism, and the role of religion in public debates on sexuality.

When Race, Religion, and Sport Collide Black Athletes at BYU and Beyond By Darron T. Smith

This book tells the story of Brandon Davies’ dismissal from BYU’s NCAA playoff basketball team to illustrate the thorny intersection of religion, race, and sport in college athletics.

Smith is an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Sociology at the University of Memphis.

“Eckstein takes a broad look at a contentious topic—how our love for playing a game becomes deeply embedded in structural quagmires well beyond our individual passions. Sociologically grounded, his ethnographic approach, data driven analysis, and provocative queries force us to ask questions that the increasingly commodified complex of higher education often prefers to side-step. How College Athletics Are Hurting Girls’ Sports offers both depth and mainstream normalcy, but Eckstein’s fundamental plea is at the base of a long history of girls and women in sport—validate the experiences of the female athlete, yet beware, exploitation isn’t far from the next level.” —Jane M. Stangl, Smith College This book looks closely at college sports and how they shape the athletic and personal landscape for girls and young women. Filled with interview excerpts from women athletes of all ages, the book chronicles how college and youth sports have become more corporate, to the detriment of participants.

Urban Sociology

The New Brooklyn What It Takes to Bring a City Back By Kay S. Hymowitz Only a few decades ago, the Brooklyn stereotype well known to Americans was typified by television programs such as “The Honeymooners” and “Welcome Back, Kotter”—comedies about workingclass sensibilities, deprivation, and struggles. Today, the borough across the East River from Manhattan is home to trendsetters, celebrities, and enough “1 percenters” to draw the Occupy Wall Street protests across the Brooklyn Bridge. “Tres Brooklyn,” has become a compliment among gourmands in Parisian restaurants. In The New Brooklyn, Kay Hymowitz chronicles the policies and events that transformed the borough so dramatically in such a short period of time and considers whether the borough’s new wealth will lift up some of the borough’s most blighted neighborhoods. Her portrait of the dramatic transformation of one urban center offers prescriptions that any city can employ and will be required reading for everyone interested in the rebirth of America’s cities.

Bridging Differences

By John H. Kranzler (University of Florida)

Efforts to address the problems of distressed urban neighborhoods stretch back to the 1800s, but until relatively recently, data played little role in forming policy. It wasn’t until the early 1990s that all of the factors necessary for rigorous, multifaceted analysis of neighborhood conditions—automated government records, geospatial information systems, and local organizations that could leverage both—converged. Strengthening Communities documents that convergence and details its progress, plotting the ways data are improving local governance in America.

Theory

Classical Social Theory and Modern Society Marx, Durkheim, Weber By Edward Royce (Rollins College) “This substantive volume offers an overview of Karl Marx, Émile Durkheim, and Max Weber’s theories of society. Focus on only three theorists is justified given that these three are most often seen as the founding trilogy of sociological thinkers in discerning mechanisms for explaining the profound transformations of society following industrialization and the Enlightenment. Royce orients on the unique interpretation of modernity from each theorist with more depth on themes regarding ‘the individual,’ politics, and the economy. Recommended.”—CHOICE Classical Social Theory and Modern Society introduces students to Marx, Durkheim, and Weber. After surveying the historical context in which they wrote, the book provides an overview of each thinker, then places them in dialogue with each other on four issues that remain relevant to life in today’s modern world: the pathologies of modern society, the predicament of the modern individual, the state and democracy, and socialism versus capitalism.

Asking, How could they do it? about the many ordinary people who have been perpetrators and those who resist extensive evils—genocide, human trafficking, endemic sexualized violations of females, economic exploitation—the book delves into historic, contemporary, national, and international examples. The author, a moral philosopher, draws also on literature, psychology, economics, journalism, and pop culture. Reversing Arendt’s banality of evil, she finds that mind-deadening banality, thoughtless conventionality, ambition, greed, status-seeking enable the evil of banality.

New Directions in the Philosophy of Social Science By Daniel Little “Before he coined the Latin and Greek hybrid term ‘sociology’ for his new science, Auguste Comte used the label ‘social physics.’ In contrast, Little argues that ‘sociology is not like physics.’ And what he says about sociology applies to other social sciences, from ethnography to economics. . . . Little’s ability to explore basic issues from philosophy with contemporary examples from various social sciences will make this work a valued source for social scientists, and philosophers will gain insight into the applicability of their concepts to the work of practicing contemporary social scientists. Highly recommended.”—CHOICE

New Philosophies of Sex and Love Thinking Through Desire Edited by Sarah LaChance Adams (University of Wisconsin, Superior), Christopher M. Davidson (Ball State University) and Caroline R. Lundquist (University of Oregon) Our amorous and erotic experiences do not simply bring us pleasure; they shape our very identities, our ways of relating to ourselves, each other and our shared world. This volume reflects on some of our most prevalent assumptions relating to identity, the body, monogamy, libido, sexual identity, seduction, fidelity, orgasm, and more. The book covers common conflicts and confusions and includes work by established scholars and innovative new thinkers. Philosophically challenging but highly readable, the volume is ideal for a wide range of courses on love and sex, including those taught in philosophy and gender studies.

This is the first English-language translation of an important book that contributes to contemporary debates about social suffering in sociology, social psychology, political theory and philosophy. Renault provides a systematic account of the ways in which social suffering could be conceptualised.

The Science of Population

THIRD EDITION

SECOND EDITION

By K. Bruce Newbold

By Jay Weinstein and Vijayan K. Pillai

This compact and accessible text provides a comprehensive, issueoriented introduction to population geography. First grounding students in the fundamentals, Bruce Newbold then explains the tools and techniques commonly used to describe and understand population concepts using real-world issues and events. Drawing on both U.S. and international cases, he explores such pressing concerns as HIV/AIDS, international migration, refugee movements, fertility, mortality, resource scarcity, and conflict. Every chapter includes both methods and focus sections to provide a more in-depth discussion of the ideas and concepts developed in the book. In addition, a wide array of maps, tables, and figures illustrate and enhance the cases. Newbold highlights the geographical perspective—with its ability to provide powerful insights and bridge disparate issues—by emphasizing the roles of space and place, location, regional differences, and diffusion. Arguing that an understanding of population is essential to prepare for the future, this cogent text will provide upper-division undergraduates with a thorough grasp of the field.

This comprehensive, introductory text takes an applied, interdisciplinary approach. Because one author is a sociologist and the other a demographer, the text introduces perspectives from many different disciplines. The most applied book on the market, Demography: The Science of Population teaches students how to use the multitude of demographic resources available to them as consumers of data. Using case studies throughout to illustrate key concepts in a realistic and concrete manner, the authors also draw examples from recent U.S. Census data, United Nations and World Bank reports, tables from the National Center for Health Statistics, and other U.S. state- and countylevel sources.

Crime, Law, and Deviance

Crime, Law, and Deviance

Juvenile Delinquency THIRD EDITION

By Donald J. Shoemaker (Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University) “This is a top-notch treatment of juvenile delinquency. Donald Shoemaker’s third edition of Juvenile Delinquency is wellwritten, provides cogent summaries of key concepts and statistical patterns, and captures the core—as well as important nuances—of this topic better than any textbook I’ve seen.” —Darrell J. Steffensmeier, Pennsylvania State University

Social Deviance By Tim Delaney The topic of social deviance is inherently intriguing. People in general, and college students in particular, find the topic of deviant behavior fascinating. This can be explained, at least in part, by a combination of the subject matter itself, our own past deviant behaviors, and our willingness and desire to evaluate and comment on the behaviors of others. While the topic of deviant behavior seems straightforward at the surface, the study of social deviance reveals how complicated it really is. Although Social Deviance utilizes a textbook-style approach in its coverage of deviant behavior, this comprehensive, straightforward, and student-friendly book maintains student interest because of the author’s use of real life phenomena and current examples. Each chapter includes chapter objectives, an introductory story, a glossary of key terms, discussion questions and boxed material. The boxed materials include “A Closer Look” box that zooms in on topics that warrant deeper explanation; and a “Connecting Social Deviance and Popular Culture” box that shows how contemporary forms of popular culture illustrate deviant behavior.

Youth, Crime, and Justice

Everyday Surveillance

With an emphasis on the importance of theory and practice, Juvenile Delinquency is a timely and comprehensive introduction to crime, justice, and young people. Updated throughout, the third edition features new information about gangs and prevention, the impact of race and gender on crime and justice, and more comparative/international examples.

Learning through Cases By Erika Gebo and Carolyn Boyes-Watson (both, Suffolk University)

Vigilance and Visibility in Postmodern Life

This is a comprehensive introduction to youth, crime, and justice through a unique case-study approach. Taking a life course perspective, the book examines the changing landscapes of childhood and the justice system, with an intersectional focus.

The Violence of Hate

Gangsters, Bikers, and Terrorists with Military Training By Carter F. Smith (Middle Tennessee State University)

Understanding Harmful Forms of Bias and Bigotry

“Carter Smith has provided an excellent examination of issues so often missed, and more often misunderstood. He provides the reader with a fantastic historical perspective which offers a wonderful lead into an analysis of the issues of military training and service for gang members.” —Andy Bain, University of Mount Union, Ohio Gangs are expanding, evolving, and posing an increasing threat to communities nationwide. This could be due in part to the increased number of gang members with military training. This book explores how military veterans are becoming increasingly involved in street gangs, outlaw motorcycle gangs, and domestic extremist groups.

An up-to-date perspective on the white power movement in America

FOURTH EDITION

By Jack Levin (Northeastern University) and Jim Nolan (West Virginia University)

So You Want to Be a Cop What Everyone Should Know Before Entering a Law Enforcement Career By Alley Evola

“Sheridan and Rainville use their extensive experience (over 30 years each) to write an exceptional work on careers within criminal justice. . . . An excellent source for students, faculty, and advisors, this volume offers much more than comparable works that deal merely with getting a job. Instead, the authors tell how to build a successful criminal justice career that one will love, from first employment to retirement. Highly recommended.”—CHOICE

The Violence of Hate, Fourth Edition presents a systematic introduction to issues related to the sociology and social psychology of hate and violence as they target people who are different in socially significant ways. It offers an integrated perspective on the causes and consequences of hate-motivated violence and the reasons we have not always been effective in stopping it. Not only do the authors address the experiences of racial, ethnic, and religious groups under attack, but also those who are victimized because of their sexual orientation, gender, gender-identity, age, or disability status. In addition, they include a chapter dedicated solely to the exploration of hate crimes, an evolving legal concept and public policy domain, as well as a chapter in which they suggest approaches that may be effectively applied collectively to the reduction of hate violence. As in earlier versions of The Violence of Hate, Levin and Nolan take the position that support for hate-motivated violence originates not in the ranting and raving of a few bigoted extremists at the margins of society but in the tacit approval of ordinary, even decent, people who are located squarely in the mainstream.

This book explores the criminal justice career landscape by providing a glimpse into the different careers and advice on how to prepare to enter those career fields. This book includes personal profiles that exemplify real work in the criminal justice profession; written by current employees, some retired and some by exemplary leaders in the field.

“Evola gives readers a thrilling insider’s look at the often-glorified job of an American cop. Opening on an action-packed scene that could be taken straight out of a Michael Bay movie, her first book is an immersing read for anyone curious about the world of law enforcement, and should be required reading for those considering a career in the field. Evola’s no-nonsense voice is powerful, witty, and engaging.”—Booklist Alley Evola, a retired, nine-year veteran of a mid-size police department in Middle Tennessee, produces a look at the daily ins and outs of the job of a police officer, from recruitment, life at the academy, patrol, and eventually promotion to either a supervisory or specialized role.

My Partner, My Enemy An Unflinching View of Domestic Violence and New Ways to Protect Victims By John Michael Leventhal

Thriving in an All-Boys Club Female Police and Their Fight for Equality By Cara Rabe-Hemp (Illinois State University) Though women changed their police role throughout history, sexual harassment and gender-bias is still evident in this male-dominated field. Cara Rabe-Hemp shows that despite the struggles that women face in the “all-boys club” of policing, not only do women survive but they thrive in this almost exclusively male occupation. Cara Rabe-Hemp, PhD, is professor in the Department of Criminal Sciences at Illinois State University.

“As the presiding judge of the Brooklyn Domestic Violence Court (the first of its kind in the nation when it opened in 1996), author Leventhal certainly knows his stuff. Startling statistics immediately draw readers in—a woman is beaten by her domestic partner every 15 seconds in the U.S., accounting for at least four million reported incidents against women every year. Domestic violence is a crime ‘committed across all strata of the population,’ and certainly the cases presented by Leventhal reflect that. This is an important book in its field. . . . It’s clear that books like this are needed to raise awareness.”—Publishers Weekly Domestic violence and abuse can unfortunately happen to anyone and is so often overlooked. In My Partner, My Enemy, Hon. John Michael Leventhal opens the readers’ eyes to the problem by looking at true cases of domestic violence, and offering solutions and resources to aid in the effort to help stop the problem.

By Virginia M. Kendall and T. Markus Funk Foreword by Richard A. Posner Previous edition praise: “The book aims to present a one-stop source on the subject — from child pornography to international human trafficking and the organized crime that is often behind it. . . . [Funk and Kendall] wanted to provide a resource regarding not only victims, but various sex crimes, the court system, defense strategies and computer techniques perpetrators use to hide information, as well as how law enforcement can find it.” —Chicago Sun-Times This book provides an updated, comprehensive introduction to the moral, legal, and political realities of the epidemic of child sexual exploitation and labor trafficking. Written from the perspective of those who have spent their careers in the trenches, the book provides muchneeded practical thinking for those involved in this challenging area.

Beyond Blurred Lines Rape Culture in Popular Media By Nickie D. Phillips (St. Francis College) “Sociologist Phillips explains that ‘rape culture’ as a concept has existed for over 25 years, but has only become popularized in the last decade. Phillips does not aim to show statistics about rape or showcase in-depth interviews with victims. Rather, she relies on extensive data and resources to unearth how ‘rape culture entered the collective imagination.’ . . . This book has significant value not because it discusses why rape happens or what caused rape culture, but because it traces the history of the concept and its social meaning. Highly recommended.” —CHOICE Beyond Blurred Lines explores the ways that the concept of “rape culture” resonates in popular media. This book demonstrates that popular culture, mass media, and social media are prominent sites for understanding and responding to sexual violence.

“Clearly written and compellingly argued, this volume is an invaluable resource for scholars and ideal for classroom use.” —Francis T. Cullen, University of Cincinnati “Provides a well-reasoned . . . critique of the American criminal justice system, along with thoughtful prescriptions for revolutionary reform.” —Publishers Weekly With recidivism rates north of 70% and tens of billions of dollars wasted annually on policies that assume we can punish the crime out of criminal offenders, America’s fixation with “tough on crime” has been an utter failure. William R. Kelly lays out a roadmap for how to effectively reduce recidivism, crime, victimization and cost.

Kelly (University of Texas at Austin, Texas) with Robert Pitman and William Streusand From Retribution to Public Safety places clinical assessment and intervention of mentally, intellectually and neurocognitively disordered offenders squarely in the middle of criminal justice reform and develops a roadmap for appropriate changes to criminal law and procedure as well as public health.

This book explores how the legacy of violence during the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia is memorialized. Engaging with war, violence and critical heritage studies, the book looks at how the selective production of heritage diminishes opportunities for justice and reconciliation beyond the violence. It should be of particular interest to students and scholars interested in heritage studies, memory, trauma, genocide, dark tourism, and Cambodia.

From Retribution to Public Safety

Landscape, Memory, and Post-Violence in Cambodia

“In this groundbreaking book on the U.S. criminal justice system, Trainum, a former Washington, D.C. police detective, argues for reform of police interviewing and interrogation practices. . . . Using numerous examples and backed by persuasive academic research, Trainum proposes a better way that is already at work in countries with similar criminal justice systems. His book will hit a nerve with a public newly concerned with abuses of police power, and hopefully will influence those tasked with law enforcement and public policy as well.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review How Police Generate False Confessions explores the research on and controversy around false confessions and helps the reader understand what really happens in the interrogation room.

Abetting Batterers

Death on Demand

What Police, Prosecutors, and Courts Aren’t Doing to Protect America’s Women By Andrew R. Klein and Jessica L. Klein

Jack Kevorkian and the Right-to-Die Movement By Michael DeCesare (Merrimack College)

“The Kleins, experts and advocates about domestic violence, address the failure of the criminal justice system to adequately confront domestic abuse. . . . The book is well written with effective use of case histories and is adequately referenced and indexed. Recommended.”—CHOICE Abetting Batterers reveals the troubling patterns of inattention and incompetence that compromise the safety of women in the US. It looks at how the criminal justice system responds to the ever-growing problem of domestic violence, what preventative strategies and training have been developed and put in place, and why most are still failing.

A Return to Justice Rethinking our Approach to Juveniles in the System By Ashley Nellis “This material would be of value to those that are looking at what has been done in the past and looking for questions to help further their questions for what can be done in the future.” —Journal of Youth and Adolescence The juvenile justice system has changed dramatically since its inception in this country. From a system that sought to protect and rehabilitate, to one that sought to punish and incarcerate, it is now refocusing on treatment and redirection. Here, Ashley Nellis delivers a history of the system and calls for more reforms to reflect current realities.

Death on Demand explores the polarizing role of Jack Kevorkian—“Dr. Death”—and his role as the most visible leader of the right-to-die movement. The book examines Kevorkian’s activities in the context of the right-to-die movement to understand his crucial role in bringing the controversial practice of assisted suicide into the public conversation.

When Deadly Force Is Involved A Look at the Legal Side of Stand Your Ground, Duty to Retreat, and Other Questions of Self-Defense By Bruce M. Lawlor “Lawlor, a retired military officer and attorney with a background in security who is also a licensed firearms instructor, presents a straightforward analysis of U.S. self-defense laws by providing a variety of actual cases for readers to consider. . . . Lawlor’s dispassionate approach will be appreciated by those interested in learning about the legal aspects of self-defense.”—Booklist Misinformation about self-defense rights and laws is what has sparked major debate over the misapplication of lethal force in civilian communities. Bruce Lawlor identifies the major issues in self-defense cases, and the legal approaches used to resolve them.
