Education policy is not designed to eliminate race inequality but to sustain it at manageable levels. This is the inescapable conclusion of the first major study of the English education system using ‘critical race theory’. David Gillborn has been described as Britain’s ‘most influential race theorist in education’. In this book he dissects the role of racism across the education system; from national policies to school-level decisions about discipline and academic selection. Race inequality is not accidental and things are not getting better. Despite occasional ‘good news’ stories about fluctuations in statistics, the reality is that race inequality is so deeply entrenched that it is effectively ‘locked in’ as a permanent feature of the system. Built on a foundation of compelling evidence, from national statistics to studies of classroom life, this book shows how race inequality is shaped and legitimized across the system. The study explores a series of key issues including: the impact of the ‘War on Terror’ and how policy privileges the interests of white people how assessment systems produce race inequality exposes the ‘gifted and talented’ programme as a form of eugenic thinking based on discredited and racist myths about intelligence and ability documents the Stephen Lawrence case revealing how policy makers have betrayed earlier commitments to race equality shows how ‘model minorities’ are created and used to counter anti-racism how education policy is implicated in the defence of white power. Conspiracy? Racism & Education takes critical antiracist analyses to a new level and represents a fundamental challenge to current assumptions in the field. With a preface by Richard Delgado, one of the founders of critical race theory.

Flüchtige Zeiten

Leben in der Ungewissheit

Wir leben in einer Welt des Übergangs von der "festen" zur "flüssigen" Moderne. Unsicherheit und Ungewissheit prägen den Alltag vieler Menschen, denen ohne stabile gesellschaftliche Formen und Institutionen ein Bezugsrahmen sowohl für ihr Handeln als auch für langfristige Lebenspläne fehlt und die sich gezwungen sehen, ihr Leben aus einer endlosen Abfolge von kurzfristigen Projekten und Episoden zusammenzuflicken. Konzepte wie "Karriere" oder "Fortschritt" können nur noch von wenigen aktiv verfolgt werden, und "in Sicherheit zu leben" bedeutet schon heute vielerorts - vorausgesetzt, man kann es sich leisten -, bewacht zu werden und abgeschottet zu sein von den Wirren der globalen Megacitys, von Armut und dem "menschlichen Abfall". Der renommierte Soziologe Zygmunt Bauman erkundet in diesem Band die endemische Unsicherheit, die unser heutiges Leben formt. In "flüchtigen Zeiten" wird dem Individuum ein sehr hohes Maß an Flexibilität und Anpassungsfähigkeit abverlangt und die permanente Bereitschaft, Taktiken zu ändern, Verpflichtungen und Loyalitäten ohne Bedauern fallenzulassen und Gelegenheiten je nach kurzfristiger Verfügbarkeit zu ergreifen. Leben bedeutet mit der Ungewissheit umzugehen.

Lesen Sie die besten Werke großer Schriftsteller,Poeten, Autoren und Philosophen auf Ihrem Kindle Reader. Dieses Werk bietet zusätzlich * Eine Biografie/Bibliografie des Autors. Die protestantische Ethik und der Geist des Kapitalismus ist ein Werk von Max Weber, das zuerst in Form eines zweiteiligen Aufsatzes im November 1904 und Frühjahr 1905 im Archiv für Sozialwissenschaften und Sozialpolitik, Bd. XX und XXI erschien, und das 1920 in überarbeiteter Fassung veröffentlicht wurde. Es zählt neben Webers Schrift Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft zu seinen international wichtigsten Beiträgen zur Soziologie und ist ein grundlegendes Werk der Religionssoziologie. Zwischen der protestantischen Ethik und dem Beginn der Industrialisierung bzw. des Kapitalismus in Westeuropa besteht nach diesem Werk ein enger Zusammenhang. Die Kompatibilität („Wahlverwandtschaften“) der Ethik oder religiösen Weltanschauung der Protestanten, insbesondere der Calvinisten, und dem kapitalistischen Prinzip der Akkumulation von Kapital und Reinvestition von Gewinnen waren ein idealer Hintergrund für die Industrialisierung.

​ „Der Mensch mit abweichendem Verhalten ist ein Mensch, auf den diese Bezeichnung erfolgreich angewandt worden ist; abweichendes Verhalten ist Verhalten, das Menschen als solches bezeichnen“: Es ist einer der klassischen Sätze der Devianzsoziologie in einem der Klassiker des Feldes. Howard S. Becker betont fernab von alten und simplistischen Fragen danach, „warum Menschen Regeln brechen“, welche Situationen und welche Prozesse dazu führen, dass Menschen in Positionen geraten, in denen sie als „Regelbrecher“ betitelt werden, wie sie mit diesen Positionen umgehen und sich auch gegen diese wehren. „Außenseiter“ erschien erstmals 1963 in New York und wurde 1981 bei S. Fischer in deutscher Übersetzung publiziert. Seit den frühen neunziger Jahren vergriffen, liegt hier nun eine von Michael Dellwing überarbeitete und herausgegebene Version vor.
