Based on large research material collected in Hungary, Macedonia, Serbia and Bulgaria Social change, Gender and Violence is the book which explores the impact of transition from communism and war on everyday life of women and men, as well as the way how everyday life and gender related changes affect women's vulnerability to domestic violence and trafficking in women. The book also explores the impact of micro level changes on development of civil society, women's movement, and legal and policy changes regarding violence against women. This is a unique book, which tries to look at violence against women as connected to oppression of both women and men. It argues that violence against women in post-communist and war affected societies is significantly connected to the increase of social stratification, economic hardship, unemployment, instability, uncertainty and related social stresses, changes in gender identity and structural inequalities brought by new world order. Using largely accounts of more than hundred interviewed people, the author shows vividly how, in post-communist societies, the contradictions of capitalism are interlaced with the mostly negative relics of communism. Moreover, the book shows how contradictory processes in post-communist societies have led to a rather paradoxical result: political pluralism and a capitalist economic system generated both violence against women and a women's movement, albeit not the conditions for a reduction of violence.

Social Indicators Research: An International and Interdisciplinary Journal for Quality-of-Life Measurement was founded by Alex C. Michalos and published its first issue in March 1974. It has been the leading journal for scholarly research in its field for over thirty years. This volume is published in celebration of that record of accomplishment. The 19 articles assembled here are a selection drawn from the 34 (2.4%) most frequently cited articles in the journal’s history. An introductory essay written by Michalos explains the historical and scientific importance of each article in the development of social indicators or quality-of-life research. It provides a rare overview of the perceived scientific problems that researchers around the world addressed in the first three decades of exploration, as well as a view of some of the problems to be addressed in the future. A short essay describing the origins of the journal by its founder is also included. Anyone interested in having a single volume that contains some of the best research produced in this field will find this volume irresistible.

This book is concerned with the question of inequality - which points to a major structural problem in intra-national and inter-national respect. It covers the tension between the rich and poor in less developed countries as well as within richer countries in the process of globalisation. The main topics are the scope of disparities between the rich and poor, people's perception of wealth and poverty, and the concomitants of inequality which shape this relationship and influence its socio-economic consequences. In the tradition of social reporting, the book brings together authors from 15 countries, documenting a broad range of the international inequality debate. The results are related to the trends of socio-economic development, to statistical problems of measuring inequality, and to socio-political problems of integrating society in the facing the challenge of dividing forces. The book is of interest for everybody who wants to understand the tensions of modern world.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Klassiker und Theorierichtungen, Johannes Gutenberg-Universität Mainz (Erziehungswissenschaften), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Jeder Mensch hat einen Lebenslauf, in dem er verschiedene Phasen der Entwicklung von der Geburt bis zum Tod durchläuft. Die Ausgestaltung dieser Lebensphasen hängt von sozialen Konstruktionen ab, da die Gesellschaft das Leben der Individuen durch institutionelle Vorgaben und kulturelle Deutungen strukturiert. Aus Durchschnittswerten entwickelten sich Altersnormen, wodurch der „Normallebenslauf“ entstand. Der Normallebenslauf ist ein allgemeines Modell, dass für alle Individuen gelten soll, auch wenn es unterschiedliche Verlaufsmuster in den sozialen Schichtungen und Geschlechtern gibt. In der folgenden Arbeit soll das Konzept des institutionalisierten Lebenslaufs nach Martin Kohli dargestellt werden, welcher durch die Entwicklung der typischen Lebensform der vorindustriellen und protoindustriellen westlichen Gesellschaften des 18. und 19. Jahrhunderts zur Hochmoderne der zweiten Hälfte des 20.Jahrhunderts entstanden ist.
