            This study is a major addition to understanding the problems of social inequality and the nature of caste and kinship. A full account is given of the social structure of the region, emphasizing the continuity of principles, which govern relations between castes and relationships ...within castes. The ethnographic data bear in particular on: the nature of untouchability; models of caste ranking; the way in which 'traditional' family structures adapt to a diversification of the economy and the debate about the 'instability' of regimes of generalized exchange. Originally published in 1979.

            This volume examines the discursive construction of the meanings and lifestyle practices of the middle class in the rapidly transforming economies of Asia, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, focusing on the social, political and cultural implications at local and global l...evels. While drawing a comparative analysis of what it means to be middle class in these different locations, the essays offer a connective understanding of the middle class phenomenon in emerging market economies and lay the groundwork for future research on emerging, transitional societies. The book addresses three key dimensions: the discursive creation of the middle class, the construction of the cultural identity through consumption practices and lifestyle choices, and the social, political and cultural consequences related to globalization and neoliberalism.

            Culture and Economy in the Age of Social Media (Hardback)

            Understanding social media requires us to engage with the individual and collective meanings that diverse stakeholders and participants give to platforms. It also requires us to analyse how social media companies try to make profits, how and which labour creates this profit, who ...creates social media ideologies, and the conditions under which such ideologies emerge. In short, understanding social media means coming to grips with the relationship between culture and the economy. In this thorough study, Christian Fuchs, one of the leading analysts of the Internet and social media, delves deeply into the subject by applying the approach of cultural materialism to social media, offering readers theoretical concepts, contemporary examples, and proposed opportunities for political intervention. Culture and Economy in the Age of Social Media is the ultimate resource for anyone who wants to understand culture and the economy in an era populated by social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook, and Google in the West and Weibo, Renren, and Baidu in the East. Updating the analysis of thinkers such as Raymond Williams, Karl Marx, Ferruccio Rossi-Landi, and Dallas W. Smythe for the 21st century, Fuchs presents a version of Marxist cultural theory and cultural materialism that allows us to critically understand social media's influence on culture and the economy.

            Transnationalizing Inequalities in Europe: Sociocultural Boundaries, Assemblages and Regimes of Intersection
             

            Transnationalizing Inequalities in Europe: Sociocultural Boundaries, Assemblages and Regimes of Intersection (Hardback)

            • To Order

            This book combines transnational, intersectional and cultural-sociological perspectives to develop a conceptual tool to analyze patterns, contexts and mechanisms of cross-border inequalities. First, synthesizing the theories of social boundaries and of intersectionality, it appro...aches patterns of social inequalities as intersectionally-produced sociocultural boundaries, with gender, ethnicity / race, class and several other categories being sets of unequal social relations. Cross-border inequalities are analysed as spatialized inequalities, with space (which includes the cross-border categories global and transnational ) considered as a specific type of sociocultural boundaries. Second, in line with assemblage theory, the societal contexts of cross-border inequalities such as the EU are then conceptualized as assemblages that are shaped by an interplay of spatialized and other types of inequalities. Third, the mechanisms of cross-border inequalities are analysed as regimes of intersection that relate spatialized cross-border inequalities to other types of unequal social relations such as gendered, ethnicized/racialized and class-related inequalities. Examples of such regimes of intersection include regulations on migration, internationalization programmes at universities, diversity policies and even family memories. To illustrate the conceptual elements developed in this way, the book provides evidence from empirical research on migration and mobility in Europe, specifically from research on recent migration between Ukraine and Germany, and addresses these developments as processes that are paradigmatic for the study of spatialized cross-border inequalities in general, and for the study of the transnationalized forms they involve in particular.

            When Rape was Legal: The Untold History of Sexual Violence during Slavery

            When Rape was Legal: The Untold History of Sexual Violence during Slavery (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            When Rape was Legal is the first book to solely focus on the widespread rape perpetrated against enslaved black women by white men in the United States. The routine practice of sexual violence against enslaved black women by white men, the motivations for this rape, and the legal... context that enabled this violence are all explored and scrutinized. Enlightening analysis found that rape was not merely a result of sexual desire and opportunity, or simply a form of punishment and racial domination, but instead encompassed all of these dimensions as part of the identity of white masculinity. This provocative text highlights the significant role that white women played in enabling sexual violence against enslaved black women through a variety of responses and, at times, through their lack of response to the actions of the white men in their lives. Significantly, this book finds that sexual violence against enslaved black women was a widespread form of oppression used to perform white masculinity and reinforce an intersectional hierarchy. Additionally, white women played a vital role by enabling this sexual violence and perpetuating the subordination of themselves and those subordinate to them.

            In the World Library of Educationalists series, international experts themselves compile career-long collections of what they judge to be their finest pieces - extracts from books, key articles, salient research findings, major theoretical and practical contributions - so the wor...ld can read them in a single manageable volume. Readers will be able to follow the themes and strands and see how their work contributes to the development of the field. Professor Sally Tomlinson brings together 12 of her key writings in one place, including chapters from her best-selling books and articles from leading journals. In this landmark publication she reviews and recounts the history and development of her research and writing over 30 years that is concerned with the politics of education systems, especially special education, and the place of social classes and ethnic and racial minorities in the systems. Social class, race and gender have historically always been essential markers in deciding who would receive a minimum or inferior education and thus fail to obtain whatever were currently acceptable qualifications. Definitions of the 'less able' or ineducable were based on beliefs in the biological and cultural inferiority of lower social classes, racial and immigrant groups. Professor Tomlinson's aim in her work has always been to introduce sociological, historical and political perspectives into an area dominated by psychological, administrative and technical views and to explain how the individual 'problems' were connected to wider social structures and policies. This unique collection illustrates the development of Professor Tomlinson's thinking over the course of her long and esteemed career.
