Abstract

People like to live in a safe neighborhood. Areas with a variety of facilities like houses, offices and shops seem to be an important strategy to improve the safety of a neighborhood. More people on the streets means better social control, is the thought behind this strategy. But do people on the streets have consideration for each other? This book is a theory on urban environment, public familiarity and trust on the one hand. On the other it is a very practical plea for a careful planning and nuanced governance of the public space.

Abstract

Waffen allein entscheiden nicht über die Schlagkraft einer Armee. Entscheidend ist auch, wie die Kriegführung die Subjektivität der Soldaten berücksichtigt. In der vorliegenden Studie zeigt sich diese als ein historisch variables, aber nicht frei konstruierbares Phänomen. Ausgehend von dem Faktum, dass Soldaten im Krieg die Versehrtheit ihres Leibes riskieren, der sich nicht beliebig verändern lässt, wird ihre Subjektivität zwischen aktivem Handeln und passivem Erleiden beleuchtet. Das Buch analysiert die Paradoxien, die sich aus Funktionserweiterungen des soldatischen Handelns bei Auslandseinsätzen ergeben, sowie die Versuche der avancierten Militärmächte, die Subjektivität durch den Einsatz modernster Technik zu nutzen.

Abstract

Wie lässt sich die Wissensgesellschaft angesichts von Kontingenz #on("i")#regieren#off("i")#? Darauf antworten Diskurse um Partizipation und die Transformation politischer Souveränität. Partizipation wird zum programmatischen Element. Das Problem der Regierung von Kontingenz und Unsicherheit erzeugendem Wissen soll bewältigt werden, indem Laien als mündige und lernfähige Bürger adressiert werden. Vor dem Hintergrund der Foucault'schen Philosophie werden in diesem Buch die Diskurse der Wissensgesellschaft und die Praktiken der Partizipation als Techniken der Regierung begriffen und als Strategie innerhalb der neoliberalen Gouvernementalität der Gegenwart eingeordnet.

Abstract

Das "Sozialhilfeproblem" scheint in den USA - anders als in Europa - gelöst, worauf anhaltend hohe Beschäftigungsquoten verweisen. Die Studie stellt diesen Konsens in Frage. Sie untersucht die bislang nur unzureichend verstandenen Hintergründe und Konsequenzen der US-Sozialhilfereform von 1996, die einen radikalen Arbeitszwang für alle Bedürftigen einführte. Es wird erklärt, warum sich mit dieser 'Workfare-Politik' die Armut noch verschärft hat. Zudem wird gezeigt, wie Gewerkschaften und soziale Bewegungen auf diese Politik reagiert haben und vor welchen sozialpolitischen Herausforderungen Städte wie New York und Los Angeles zu Beginn des 21. Jahrhunderts stehen.

Abstract

This work is a series of sermons produced by Emeritus Professor Hans Mol, and based on Biblical texts, the Commentaries of John Calvin on these texts, and on Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion. Mol is Australia’s pre-eminent scholar in the sociology of religion, particularly in Australia. His 1971 volume, Religion in Australia, was the first attempt at statistical analysis of religion in Australia, which was also internationally significant. Parallel to Mol’s interest in the sociology of religion has been his interest in Calvin. Indeed the theological basis of his life has been as a Calvinist. Here in this volume he brings both of these interests together. His sermons, preached over the years in Canberra, seek to apply the teachings of Calvin to a world-view in which the scientific study of religion, and indeed the wider study of sociology, are of central significance. In these sermons, he succeeds considerably in this. The volume is a substantial contribution to scholarship, in that the combination of these two factors has only rarely been attempted. Thus, the volume has originality and will have enduring value. It is especially appropriate that it should be published at this time, in preparation for the 500th Anniversary of Calvin’s birth (1509–2009).

Abstract

Dieses Buch analysiert die Praxis der wissenschaftlichen Politikberatung mit den Mitteln der Theorie der Interaktionssysteme und der Professionssoziologie. Dazu wird das beratende Handeln als soziale Beziehung gefasst, die sich als ein professionalisierungsbedürftiges Arbeitsbündnis darstellt. Die Studie macht zum einen die strukturellen Probleme dieser Praxis deutlich und zeigt zum anderen, wie mit diesen Schwierigkeiten umgegangen werden kann, so dass die wissenschaftliche Beratung erfolgreich verläuft. Sie trägt zur Klärung des Beratungs-Begriffs ebenso bei wie zu einem besseren Verständnis der Praxis wissenschaftlicher Politikberatung.

Abstract

This book examines two major social changes experienced by European cities in the last two decades: post-industrial economic restructuring and new immigration flows. The link between both has been extensively discussed throughout a variety of theoretical approaches and in numerous descriptive contributions. Adding to those studies, this research focuses on three elements of migratory experience that have been relatively neglected thus far: a dynamic view of changes over time, the influence of national welfare and legislation frameworks, and the importance of support mechanisms outside the labour market. The material underpinning the arguments is the qualitative life-course analysis of 81 in-depth interviews with Senegambian migrants living in Antwerp and Barcelona.

Abstract

This meticulously researched study of irregular migrant work in Austria holds many broader lessons for countries all over Europe. The book derives many of its fascinating insights from systematic in-depth interviews with migrants themselves. The authors demonstrate that it is no longer enough to divide the world of foreign employment into "legal" and "illegal" work. Instead, over the past few years, particularly in the context of progressive EU-enlargement in Europe, new manifestations of "irregular migrant work" have evolved. Moreover, the authors convincingly argue that irregular migrant work is based on both supply and demand, and is therefore unlikely to fade away in the foreseeable future.

Abstract

Football hooliganism periodically generates widespread political and public anxiety. In spite of the efforts made and resources invested over the past decades, football hooliganism is still perceived by politicians, policymakers and media as a disturbing social problem. This highly readable book provides the first systematic and empirically grounded comparison of football hooliganism in different national and local contexts. Focused around the six Western European football clubs on which the author did his research, the book shows how different clubs experience and understand football hooliganism in different ways.
