The Chicago School of Sociology - Institutionalization, Diversity, and the Rise of Sociological Research (Paperback, New... The Chicago School of Sociology - Institutionalization, Diversity, and the Rise of Sociological Research (Paperback, New edition)
Martin Bulmer
R844 Discovery Miles 8 440 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

From 1915 to 1935 the inventive community of social scientists at the University of Chicago pioneered empirical research and a variety of qualitative and quantitative methods, shaping the future of twentieth-century American sociology and related fields as well. Martin Bulmer's history of the Chicago school of sociology describes the university's role in creating research-based and publication-oriented graduate schools of social science.
This is an important piece of work on the history of sociology, but it is more than merely historical: Martin Bulmer's undertaking is also to explain why historical events occurred as they did, using potentially general theoretical ideas. He has studied what he sees as the period, from 1915 to 1935, when the 'Chicago School' most flourished, and defines the nature of its achievements and what made them possible . . . It is likely to become the indispensible historical source for its topic.--Jennifer Platt, Sociology

Social Measurement through Social Surveys - An Applied Approach (Paperback, New Ed): Julie Gibbs Social Measurement through Social Surveys - An Applied Approach (Paperback, New Ed)
Julie Gibbs; Edited by Martin Bulmer
R1,042 Discovery Miles 10 420 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

How do academic social scientists and survey professionals use social measurement techniques? How are these techniques applied to specific concepts in empirical research? This book is an important resource for students, academic and professional researchers, offering an overview of both new and practiced methods of social measurement for quantitative survey research. It will provide readers looking to investigate "hot" social science topics with a way of learning how key measurement techniques can be utilised in that topic in a practical way. Emerging from the editors' widely used work on an online social survey resource offering information on key social surveys and their questionnaires entitled 'Question Bank', this book aims to take this material further. It elaborates on the problems involved with this resource type, providing a comprehensive and unique volume that will enable the reader to have the confidence to use this technique in their own research.

The Social Basis of Community Care (Paperback): Martin Bulmer The Social Basis of Community Care (Paperback)
Martin Bulmer
R1,319 Discovery Miles 13 190 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Care for the elderly, disabled and mentally-ill within and by the community forms a vital part of current social policy. Martin Bulmer argues that this policy is inadequately thought out and rests on a series of poorly founded sociological assumptions. As a result there is a vacuum at the heart of government's social care policy which is likely to lead to ineffective or deteriorating provision for those in need. This book, first published in 1987, will be essential reading for all those concerned with the organization and delivery of social care, whether as students, practitioners or teachers. It will be particularly useful for courses dealing with social policy, the personal social services and the social context of social work.

Social Research and Royal Commissions (Paperback): Martin Bulmer Social Research and Royal Commissions (Paperback)
Martin Bulmer
R1,136 Discovery Miles 11 360 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Social scientists have proposed several different models for the relationship between social science theory, empirical social research and the actual making of public social policy. This book, first published in 1980, seeks to provide a critical analysis of the impact of research on policy through the detailed examination of the part which research played in the work of Royal Commissions of Inquiry, the bodies set up by government to consider, gather evidence on, report and make recommendations about specific policy areas.

This book will be of interest to students of the social sciences, particularly sociology and politics.

The Social Survey in Historical Perspective, 1880-1940 (Paperback): Martin Bulmer, Kevin Bales, Kathryn Kish Sklar The Social Survey in Historical Perspective, 1880-1940 (Paperback)
Martin Bulmer, Kevin Bales, Kathryn Kish Sklar
R1,125 Discovery Miles 11 250 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

For the past hundred years, the social survey has been a major tool of social investigation, and its use has also been linked to social reform. Starting with the landmark surveys of Charles Booth in London and Jane Addams in Chicago, social surveys in both Britain and the Unites States investigated poverty, unemployment and other difficult social conditions. While in Britain there was marked continuity between the early studies of Booth and others, in the US the social survey movement exercised curiously little impact upon empirical social science. This 2001 book traces the history of the social Survey in Britain and the US, with two chapters on Germany and France. It discusses the aims and interests of those who carried out early surveys, and the links between the social survey and the growth of empirical social science. The contributors are drawn from a range of disciplines, including history, sociology, political science, demography and geography.

Social Science Research and Government - Comparative Essays on Britain and the United States (Paperback): Martin Bulmer Social Science Research and Government - Comparative Essays on Britain and the United States (Paperback)
Martin Bulmer
R859 Discovery Miles 8 590 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

This collection of original essays considers the relationship between social science research and government during the last 30 years in Britain and the United States including the consequences of policies towards social science of the Reagan and Thatcher governments to frame economic and social policies. What sorts of social science research are available and how are they used? How has the use of the social sciences grown and with what consequences? What is the role of such expertise in the democratic political process? These are some of the questions which the book seeks to answer by a detailed comparison of two of the leading Western nations in social science. Twenty authoritative contributors, most of whom work or have worked in government, review the general features of government/social science interaction, and examine in detail the institutions and methodology by means of which such knowledge-use is fostered. This is a unique collection, of general interest both to social science staff and graduate students and to policy-makers working inside government.

Neighbours - The Work of Philip Abrams (Paperback): Martin Bulmer Neighbours - The Work of Philip Abrams (Paperback)
Martin Bulmer
R731 Discovery Miles 7 310 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Neighbours is a study in both sociology and social policy. We all have neighbours, yet what is their sociological significance? How do we get on with them? What relationships do we establish with them? What kinds of everyday contact, help and support do they give? Why is social distance and even conflict also characteristic of relations between neighbours? This book, which presents and extends the work of the distinguished sociologist Philip Abrams (d. 1981), is the first major study of neighbours in Britain since the 1960s. It makes an important contribution to urban sociological theory and to understanding actual patterns of neighbouring in widely different parts of England. Neighbourhood care - help for the elderly, infirm and sick by those who live near them - is potentially a very important kind of informal social care, and the second part of the book examines by means of ten detailed case studies the potential for neighbourhood care in contemporary Britain. A central philosophical chapter suggests that pure ???goodness of heart??? is rarely a motive for helping others.

Gender, Race and Religion - Intersections and Challenges (Paperback): Martin Bulmer, John Solomos Gender, Race and Religion - Intersections and Challenges (Paperback)
Martin Bulmer, John Solomos
R650 Discovery Miles 6 500 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Gender, Race and Religion brings together a selection of original papers published in Ethnic and Racial Studies that address the intersections between gender relations, race and religion in our contemporary environment. Chapters address both theoretical and empirical aspects of this phenomenon, and although written from the perspective of quite different national, social and political situations, they are linked by a common concern to analyze the interface between gender and other situated social relationships, from both a conceptual and a policy angle. These are issues that have been the subject of intense scholarly research and analysis in recent years, as well as forming part of public debates about the significance of gender, race and religion as sites of identity formation and mobilization in our changing global environment. The substantive chapters bring together insights from both theoretical reflection and empirical research in order to investigate particular facets of these questions. Gender, Race and Religion addresses issues that are at the heart of contemporary scholarly debates in the field of race and ethnic studies, and engages with important questions in policy and public debates.

This book was originally published as a special issue of Ethnic and Racial Studies.

Racism (Paperback): Martin Bulmer, John Solomos Racism (Paperback)
Martin Bulmer, John Solomos
R1,586 Discovery Miles 15 860 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

W. E. B. DuBois wrote in 1903 that `the problem of the twentieth century is the problem of the colour line - the relation of the darker to the lighter races in Asia and Africa, in America and in the islands of the sea'. As the century draws to its close, this remains true; if anything the salience of race and racism in all its manifestations has grown in the recent past. The last few years have witnessed a growth in academic interest in racism, and in related issues such as nationalism and ethnicity, as well as an increasing general awareness of various kinds of racial conflict and violence in a range of countries and regions across the globe. This Reader provides a critical overview of the historical development and contemporary forms of racist ideas and institutions. It brings together material from different theoretical perspectives in an attempt to make sense of the way in which racism has exerted such a powerful influence on the history of humanity.

R825 Discovery Miles 8 250 Out of stock

First published in 1975. How do men come to perceive and evaluate a world in which marked inequalities of class and status exist? This book considers the nature of class images and their underlying work and community structures. Beginning with the argument that the perception of society varies according to type of work and community milieux, it first considers the social imagery of working-class professions and their sources of variation, and then examines some of the methodological problems of the study of class imagery. The nature of proletarian traditionalism and radicalism in then contemporary Britain is discussed in conclusion. This title will be of interest to students of sociology.

Latino Identity in Contemporary America (Paperback): Martin Bulmer, John Solomos Latino Identity in Contemporary America (Paperback)

R996 Discovery Miles 9 960 Out of stock

This edited collection brings together original research papers that explore an important aspect of race and ethnic studies, namely the processes that are shaping the making of Latina and Latino identities in contemporary America. This is a question that has received much attention in the USA over the past decade, and these papers make an original contribution to these debates. Much of this attention towards Latino/a communities in the USA can be seen as the outcome of public debates about the growth of these communities over the past three decades, and the consequences of this growth for social and political change. The papers in this collection highlight some of the key facets of contemporary research in this field. As original pieces of research they are at the forefront of current debates about Latino/a identities in contemporary America, and they provide research based insights into the changing experiences of these communities. This book was originally published as a special issue of Ethnic and Racial Studies.

The growth and health of the social sciences owe a good deal to the generally held belief that they are socially useful, but is this really so? Do they deliver the goods they promise? In The Uses of Social Research, first published in 1982, Martin Bulmer answers these and other questions concerning the uses of empirical social science in the policy-making process, and provides an extended analysis of the main issues. This title provides a valuable introduction to the patterns of influence exercised by the social sciences on government. It shows how the results of social research feed into the political system and what models of the relationship between research and policy are most convincing. This book will be of interest to students of the social sciences.

Migration and Race in Europe (Hardcover): Martin Bulmer, John Solomos Migration and Race in Europe (Hardcover)
Martin Bulmer, John Solomos
R3,104 Discovery Miles 31 040 Out of stock

Migration and Race in Europe covers various facets of the interplay between migration and race in Europe. Over the past two decades there has been a growing public policy and political debate about questions linked to migration and refugee movements across the borders of Europe. This has been evident in countries such as the UK, France, the Netherlands and Germany that have had long-established experience with questions about immigration and race. But what has also become clear is that these debates have also become an established part of political and civil society discourses across both Southern and Eastern European societies and beyond. The contributions to this volume draw on the latest research in order to provide an insight into the changing dynamics of migration and race in a number of European societies. This book was originally published as a special issue of Ethnic and Racial Studies.

Martin Bulmer
R22,975 Discovery Miles 229 750 Out of stock

Despite questionnaires being one of the principal research tools in social research, there remains a glaring lack of material on this method. Following on the success of his first set, Martin Bulmer once again tackles this lack by bringing together a wealth of material - both the classics and difficult-to-find key material - to create a second invaluble resource on questionnaires.

Volume 1 reviews the place of questionnaires in the social world. It examines pre-testing questions, types of question, question order, mode effects and further questions the implications of attitudes and behaviour for questions.

Volume Two addresses methodological issues and approaches. Topics considered include question wording, response effects, the effect of respondent and interviewer characteristics on outcome and randomised response.

Volume Three presents an issue only lightly examined in the first set: Computer Assisted Interviewing [CAI]. The history and varieties of CAI are thoroughly explored and response bias, mode interactions, coding, email questionnaires and web questionnaires examined.

Volume Four is a conclusive treatment of the varieties and problems of research involving questionnaires. It brings together key material on using projective tests, vignettes, constructing questions for qualitative interviewing, the role of questions in the focus group, attitude measurement and measurement problems in general.

With entirely new material and a shift in emphasis, Questionnaires 2 is sure to make the SAGE Benchmarks coverage of this key method even more complete.

Bringing together ten research based contributions, Muslims, Migration and Citizenship addresses questions about the changing experiences of Muslim communities, or specific groups within them, in various national and localised environments. Although not an exhaustive survey of the broad range of scholarly research in this evolving field, this book covers issues that are likely to be of some importance in the coming period. In particular, the contributors highlight the complexity of the experiences of Muslim communities in different national and cultural environments, and the evolution of both policy discourses and debates in civil society. This book was originally published as a special issue of Ethnic and Racial Studies.

R1,017 Discovery Miles 10 170 Out of stock

Diasporas, Cultures and Identities brings together a range of original research papers from Ethnic and Racial Studies that are concerned with the question of the role of diasporic ties and the social, cultural and political processes that are engendered by the changing experiences of these communities. Chapters cover a range of geopolitical and empirical contexts and serve to highlight the diverse theoretical and empirical questions that have become an integral part of the study of race and ethnicity in the contemporary environment. The study of the role of diasporas in modern societies has proceeded apace over the past two decades. Although the role of diasporic communities has been the subject of historical reflection for some time, it is only now that the concept of diaspora has become a core theme in the social sciences and humanities. We have seen an ongoing discussion about notions such as diaspora, transnationalism and cosmopolitanism and their appropriateness as conceptual frames of reference for analyzing the diverse experiences of communities that have become dispersed across the globe. This collection makes an important contribution to this body of scholarship and research.

This book was originally published as a special issue of Ethnic and Racial Studies.
