R1,444 R1,215 Discovery Miles 12 150 Save R229 (16%) Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This book aims to account for the reception, treatment and sometimes, eventual deportation, of asylum seekers in Ireland, by analysing how they are framed and dealt with by the Irish state. Both historically and theoretically grounded, it will discuss contemporary immigration policies and issues in light of the overall social, historical, and economic development of Irish society and state immigration policy. State Power and Asylum Seekers in Ireland will be of interest to scholars and students in the fields of historical sociology, sociological theory and social policy, with a focus on discourses of patterns of European migration, the changing role and function of the state and its policies, and the psycho-social experience of asylum seekers.

Understanding Immigration in Ireland - State Capital and Labour in a Global Age (Paperback): Steven Loyal Understanding Immigration in Ireland - State Capital and Labour in a Global Age (Paperback)

R456 R363 Discovery Miles 3 630 Save R93 (20%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The book is a sociological analysis of immigration in Ireland. It is the first major comprehensive study of labour and asylum immigration into Irish society. From the Great Irish Famine until the 1990s Ireland was historically a country of entrenched emigration like no other. In 1996 it became the last of the old EU 15 states to become a country of net immigration. From a relatively homogenous country characterised by Catholicism and rural development it has become one of the most globalised countries in the world containing over 188 different nationalities in the space of a decade. This book blends theoretical and empirical analysis to examine both the process of immigration and how it has been interpreted by various social actors. Drawing on qualitative and quantitative data as well as sociology and political economy it provides a broad and insightful evaluation of the transformations wrought by immigration on Irish society. The book will appeal to undergraduates, postgraduates and those readers who want both an introduction to immigration and an in-depth analysis of its repercussions for Irish society. -- .

The Sociology of Norbert Elias (Hardcover, New): Steven Loyal, Stephen Quilley The Sociology of Norbert Elias (Hardcover, New)
Steven Loyal, Stephen Quilley
R2,014 Discovery Miles 20 140 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Norbert Elias has been described as a great sociologist and over recent years there has been a steady upsurge of interest in his work. Yet despite the fact that he was active for nearly sixty years from the 1920s to the 1960s it was only in the 1980s that English translations of his works became widely available and the importance of his contribution to the sociological endeavour was fully recognised in the English speaking world. This book provides a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the key aspects of Elias's work and then applies an Eliasian approach to key topics in contemporary sociology such as race, class, gender, religion, epistemology and nationalism. The editors have brought together a distinguished group of international sociologists and this book will not only change the course of Elias studies but be a valuable resource for both students and scholars alike.

The Sociology of Anthony Giddens (Hardcover, New): Steven Loyal The Sociology of Anthony Giddens (Hardcover, New)
Steven Loyal
R1,794 Discovery Miles 17 940 Special order

Anthony Giddens has been one of the most famous and influential sociologists for some time. Largely credited with the concept of the "Third Way", he continues to be a key advisor to Tony Blair, and is generally presented as an exponent of liberalism and socialism. This work provides an introduction to Giddens' work, covering the wide range of his writing from theory to self-reflexivity, modernity and politics, placing them all within the framework of a historical context. The text argues that Giddens' writing has always embodied a political and ethical position, one that has changed considerably over the years and is best understood through the social context in which it was written. Giddens' work in the 1970s attempted to marry liberalism and socialism, but, following the collapse of Communism in the 1990 East-European revolutions, his worldview became liberal rather than socialist, and his later work on reflexivity and the "Third Way" embodies this. The text explores how this worldview accounts for many tensions and failures in Giddens' theory and that, overall, his work is fundamentally flawed.

An Essay on Time (Hardcover, 2nd Revised edition): Norbert Elias An Essay on Time (Hardcover, 2nd Revised edition)
Norbert Elias; Translated by Edmund Jephcott; Edited by Steven Loyal, Stephen Mennell
R1,893 R1,621 Discovery Miles 16 210 Save R272 (14%) Special order

In this profound book, Elias characteristically turns an ancient philosophical question - what is time? - into a researchable theoretical-empirical problem. What we call 'time' is neither an innate property of the human mind nor an immutable quality of the 'external' world. Rather it is an achievement of the human capacity for 'synthesis', for using symbolic thought to make connections between two or more sequences of events. In the course of human social development, that capacity has itself changed and developed. It is originally written in English. Two later additional sections have been translated by Edmund Jephcott.
