This volume brings together theoretical meditations and
empirical studies of the intersection of culture, power and history
in social life. New strategies for marketing and advertising to
children, the production of gendered subjectivity in maquiladora
factories, the racialized economic history of the construction of
the Chicago School of sociology, and the normalization of cosmetic
plastic surgery in contemporary America--these are some of the
crossroads under investigation here, where cultural meanings and
practices are set against historical landscapes of power. ?Included
are contributions from William Gamson, Juliet Schor, Stephen Pfohl,
Arthur and Marilouise Kroker, Jackie Orr, Leslie Salzinger, Eva
Garroutte, Davarian Baldwin, Ramon Grosfoguel, Charlotte Ryan,
Danielle Egan, Charles Sarno, Steve Farough, Karen McCorkmack,
Abigail Brooks, Aimee Van Wagenen and William Wood.
Pfohl's books include Death at the Parasite Cafe: Social Science
(Fictions) and the Postmodern (1992), Images of Deviance and Social
Control: a Sociological History (1994), and Left Behind: Religion
Technology and Flight from the Flesh (2007)
