What is Political Sociology?, Clemens, Elisabeth S.
6 Clemens, Elisabeth S. What is Political Sociology?
Cambridge, United Kingdom Polity, 2016 0745691617 / 9780745691619 Softcover As New Softcover 12mo 7" - 7 
Another fine contribution to the Polity series, "What is Sociology?" Sterling condition softcover copy, with unfurled tips, tight binding, and clean internals, showing only very slight shelf- and edge-wear. From the publisher's blurb, "With an entire discipline devoted to political science, what is distinctive about political sociology? This concise book explains what a sociological perspective brings to our understanding of the emergence, reproduction, and transformation of different forms of political order. Crucially, political sociology expands the field of view to the politics that happen in other social settings in the family, at work, in civic associations as well as the ways in which social attributes such as class, religion, age, race, and gender shape patterns of political participation and the distribution of political power. Political sociology grapples with these issues across an enormous range of historical and geographic settings, from the intimate relations that constitute family politics to the geo-political scales of war and trade. It requires an analytic toolkit that includes concepts of power, social closure, civil society, and modes of political action. Using these central concepts, What is Political Sociology? discusses the major forms of political order (states, empires, and nation-states), processes of regime formation and revolution, the social bases for political participation, policy formation as well as feedbacks, and the possibilities for new forms of transnational politics. In sum, the book offers an insightful introduction to this core perspective on social life." vi + 166 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.

7 Cortada, James W. The Digital Flood: the diffusion of information technology across the U.S., Europe, and Asia
New York Oxford University Press, 2012 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine Hard Cover 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
A clean, tight copy with no markings in the text and minimal wear to the boards; gift-quality condition. A tour-de-force exposition of the global spread of technology via the Internet, showing the varied impacts in various countries in the Americas, Europe, and Asia. From the dust jacket blurb: "No technology seems to have spread so fast around the world in such a short period of time as computers. It was a phenomenon that predated the arrival of the Internet and that began to change how businesses, governments, and whole societies functioned. The diffusion of information technologies occurred in dozens of countries all over the world with fascinating similarities and differences. In this book, historian James W. Cortada provides the first world-wide history of how computers appeared and were used in North America, all of Europe, and in most of Asia in barely a half century. He explores the causes of diffusion, arguing that more than the technology itself, other conditions were required for the spread of computers, such as standards of living, education, the Cold War, and globalization of the economy. He argues that these technologies are the glue that hold together today's economies and are propelling increases in the quality of life of over a billion people moving into the middle class.Based on archival and secondary research, extensive use of economic data, and detailed country case studies of over a dozen nations, Cortada tells the history of how computers were discovered, invented, built, and used, and the consequences for whole regions. This is the first attempt by any expert to write a global history of information technologies, and specifically, about how these spread. It is economic and business history, but also a guide to those who want to understand what is happening today in such nations as India, China, and other emerging economies as the Computer Revolution continues. He has insights for historians, economists, public officials, and business executives. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.

8 Doubt, Keith Through the Window: kinship and elopement in Bosnia-Herzegovin
Budapest Central European University Press, 2014 9633860601 / 9789633860601 First Edition, First Printing Hardcover New New Hardcover 8vo 8" - 9" tall 
Sterling condition hardcover copy, gift-quality. Tips unbruised, spine and binding tight, pages bright and clear, paste-downs neat and tidy, and not ex-library; neither underlining nor highlighting. Dust jacket fully intact, still bright and shiny. From the publisher's blurb: "This book is not about war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, evil, or the killing of a society. It is about a cultural heritage, something vital to a society as a society, something that was not killed in the previous war, something that is resilient. Through the Window brings an original perspective to folklore of Bosnians at a certain period of time and the differences and similarities of the three main ethnic groups in Bosnia and Herzegovina. It examines the transethnic character of cultural heritage, against divisions that dominate their tragic recent past. The monograph focuses in particular on customs shared by different ethnic groups, specifically elopement, and affinal visitation. The elopement is a transformative rite of passage where an unmarried girl becomes a married woman. The affinal visitation, which follows, is a confirmatory ceremony where ritualized customs between families establish in-lawships. These customs reflect a transethnic heritage shared by people in Bosnia as a national group, including Bosniaks, Serbs and Croats." Notes, index, bibliography. xvii + 158 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.

The Gang & Beyond: interpreting violent street worlds, Hallsworth, Simon
15 Hallsworth, Simon The Gang & Beyond: interpreting violent street worlds
Hampshire, United Kingdom Palgrave Macmillan, 2014 Softcover Fine Softcover 12mo 7" - 7 
A sterling condition trade paperback with tight binding, no markings, and little if any wear to the cover. Illustrated softpaper wraps. Virtually pristine interior, gift-quality condition. From the publisher's blurb: "Challenging the widely held conjecture that gangs represent the new face of youth crime this book repudiates claims which situate the gang at the heart of sexual violence, mass shooting and control of the illegal drugs trade. It pushes the epistemological, methodological and ontological borders of cultural criminology in order to understand violent street worlds and the informal organisations that operate within them. In part polemic, in part theoretical treatise, the book deciphers the gang talk now mediated by a developing industry of gang-talkers and explores how street realities have become lost in a collectively induced fantasy where gangs are regarded as public enemy number one. The book makes a case for returning to the analysis of street culture and the imperatives that orientate patterns of social action within it. It concludes by examining how better we might understand the violence of the street and the organisations that inhabit it." Notes, index, bibliography. 215 pp. Additional postage may be required for oversize or especially heavy volumes, and for sets.
