These reviews, notices, and introductory sections by a major figure in intellectual history represent more than a decade of effort to define and clarify a new form of scientific investigation. Together, they offer a suggestive new picture of Emile Durkheim as "Scholarch" of the "French School" and master of a whole school of social thought. For fifteen years, Emile Durkheim worked on the journal L'Annee Sociologique—selecting, editing, writing, and shaping the goals and methods of the "French School" of sociology. Now, Durkheim's own contributions to L'Annee are available in English. Classified and explained by Durkheim scholar Yash Nandan, this useful collection clarifies the role of L'Annee Sociologique in the development of scientific sociology; the position of L'Annee in the body of Durkheim's own work and the development of Durkheim's ideas; the importance and function of Durkheim's categories of sociological data; Durkheim's view of contemporaries, including Simmel, Westermarck, Tarde, Glotz, and Steinmetz; the exchange of ideas between historians and the L'Annee group; and the reasons for L'Annee's reputation as a unique publication in the history of sociology. Professor Nandan has organized this material according to Durkheim's own classification system, with major sections on the concepts and methodologies of general, juridic, and moral sociology, criminal sociology, and the statistics on morals. Subdivisions treat issues in law, suicide, social, political, and domestic organization, juridic and moral systems, the social contexts of crime, the sociology of knowledge, political sociology, social history, and historical sociology.

Living in Oakland at the beginning of the 20th century, Martin Eden struggles to rise above his destitute, proletarian circumstances through an intense and passionate pursuit of self-education, hoping to achieve a place among the literary elite. His principal motivation is his love for Ruth Morse. Because Eden is a rough, uneducated sailor from a working-class background and the Morses are a bourgeois family, a union between them would be impossible unless and until he reached their level of wealth and refinement. Martin Eden est un jeune marin d'Oakland né dans les bas-fonds. Sa vie est faite d'aventures, de voyages, mais aussi de brutalité et de travail. C'est ainsi, qu'il défend un jeune homme lors d'une rixe. Celui-ci issu de la classe aisée, l'invite chez lui à dîner pour le remercier. À cette occasion Martin rencontre sa sœur Ruth Morse, jeune fille délicate issue d'une famille bourgeoise dont il tombe amoureux. Il décide de s'instruire pour la conquérir.

First published in 1957, this book is a detailed analysis on Christian Democracy, a movement backed by Protestants as well as Catholics, which has become one of the great social forces of Western Europe. It is strong in eight countries. The first half of Fogarty’s book sets out what the many Christian-Democratic movements stand for. The second part of the book shows how these movements began, how they have grown, changed, and consolidated, and how they developed into the mid-20th century. This is a broad and useful survey which delves the history, nature and significance of the Christian Democratic movements in Europe. In Fogarty’s analysis, Christian Democracy may indeed bring about a renewed unity of the Christian tradition in Western society.

Modern Marriage and Its Cost to Women

A Sociological Look at Marriage in France

"Modern Marriage and Its Cost to Women examines the price women have to pay for marriage, socially and culturally. Its basic premise reunites feminist theory and the work of Pierre Bourdieu, and it is supported by data from the numerous quantitative and qualitative studies that have been carried out in France." "Rejecting a separation of family studies and gender studies, Francois de Singly offers a systematic framework to explain how the manner in which the contemporary family functions penalizes women by preventing them from defending properly their social interests and their academic capital."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

The Passion for Music: A Sociology of Mediation

Music is an accumulation of mediators: instruments, languages, sheets, performers, scenes, media and so on. There is no musical object ?in itself?; music must always be made again. In this innovative book, Hennion turns the elusiveness of music into a resource for a pragmatic analysis: by which collective process do we make music appear among us? Rather than offering a sociology of music, The Passion for Music listens to the lesson provided by the case of music - this art of infinite mediations. Learning from music allows us to transform the paradigm to be offered by sociology, by confronting it (from Durkheim and Weber to Bourdieu) with a different way of considering objects. For this task, Hennion draws on aesthetics (Adorno) and art history (Haskell, Baxandall), as well as science and technology studies and popular music studies (Latour, Frith, DeNora). As part of that project, The Passion for Music presents a wide-ranging series of case studies, restoring attention to the rich and varied intermediaries through which music is brought to life: from the debate around the reinterpretation of baroque music, to the classroom, the rock scene, the classical music concert, Bach?s ?social career? in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and the practices of music ?amateurs? today. This is the first English translation of one of the most important works of French scholarship on music and society.

French Sociology

French Sociology offers a uniquely comprehensive view of the oldest and still one of the most vibrant national traditions in sociology. Johan Heilbron covers the development of sociology in France from its beginnings in the early nineteenth century through the discipline's expansion in the late twentieth century, tracing the careers of figures from Auguste Comte to Pierre Bourdieu. Presenting fresh interpretations of how renowned thinkers such as Émile Durkheim and his collaborators defined the contours and content of the discipline and contributed to intellectual renewals in a wide range of other human sciences, Heilbron's sophisticated book is both an innovative sociological study and a major reference work in the history of the social sciences. Heilbron recounts the halting process by which sociology evolved from a new and improbable science into a legitimate academic discipline. Having entered the academic field at the end of the nineteenth century, sociology developed along two separate tracks: one in the Faculty of Letters, engendering an enduring dependence on philosophy and the humanities, the other in research institutes outside of the university, in which sociology evolved within and across more specialized research areas. Distinguishing different dynamics and various cycles of change, Heilbron portrays the ways in which individuals and groups maneuvered within this changing structure, seizing opportunities as they arose. French Sociology vividly depicts the promises and pitfalls of a discipline that up to this day remains one of the most interdisciplinary endeavors among the human sciences in France.

L'exploration du monde des professions constitue un analyseur majeur de la structure sociale, de ses transformations et de son ancrage dans le travail. Elle opère aujourd'hui selon quatre dimensions principales d'investigation et de théorisation, qui composent la trame des recherches nationales et des comparaisons internationales : l'analyse structurale ou interactionniste des relations de l'organisation interne d'une profession, et des relations de complémentarité et de concurrence avec les professions voisines, constituées ou émergentes ; l'approche socioéconomique des caractéristiques du travail fonctionnellement divisé, et de leur cotation dans l'entreprise et sur le marché de l'emploi ; l'étude microsociologique des profils individuels d'activité et des identifications à un métier ; l'analyse institutionnaliste et constructiviste de la classification des professions, et à travers celle-ci, de l'architecture sociale. Issu d'un colloque organisé à l'initiative de la Société française de sociologie, le présent volume poursuit plusieurs objectifs. Il dresse tout d'abord un bilan critique des différents courants théoriques qui ont alimenté l'étude des professions ; il évalue la robustesse de l'outil qu'a constitué la nomenclature française des professions et catégories socioprofessionnelles mise en œuvre par l'INSEE en 1982 ; il caractérise les évolutions dans l'identification et la dénomination des professions ; il confronte différentes analyses de cas issues d'enquêtes sur des ensembles professionnels et cerne les défis que doit relever l'analyse sociologique des professions face aux transformations du travail, de son organisation et de ses marchés. En devenant un champ de recherche spécifique, l'étude des professions révèle ainsi un objet bien plus complexe qu'une simple grille d'identification et de classification des tâches requises, objet qui constitue, en retour, l'un des meilleurs repères pour établir les mérites respectifs des divers paradigmes de la sociologie.

Cet ouvrage retrace les grands modèles de professions qui se sont succédés en Occident et expose les principales théories sociologiques des professions qui continuent à s’affronter – et parfois à se combiner – dans les travaux récents. Au sein d’un modèle spécifique de régulation par l’État des groupes professionnels, il rend compte de nombreuses recherches empiriques menées dans la France des années 1960 à 2010. Les évolutions récentes de ces groupes – changements démographiques, transformation du rôle de l’État, managérialisation et internationalisation – sont présentées autour de cas empiriques. À travers les modèles, théories et recherches, l’ouvrage tente de clarifier le vocabulaire qu’utilisent les sociologues pour décrire le travail professionnel, analyser la dynamique des groupes professionnels et des marchés du travail, interpréter l’évolution des systèmes et des identités professionnelles. Cette troisième édition, revue et augmentée, prend acte des nombreux travaux suscités en France par cette discipline depuis une décennie et fait le point sur les nouvelles avancées au niveau international. Claude DUBAR est professeur de sociologie émérite à l’université de Versailles- Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, ancien directeur du laboratoire Printemps (Professions- Institutions-Temporalités) associé au CNRS. Pierre TRIPIER est professeur de sociologie émérite à l’université de Versailles- Saint-Quentin-en-Yvelines, membre du laboratoire Printemps. Valérie BOUSSARD est professeure de sociologie à l’université de Paris-Ouest- Nanterre-La Défense, membre du laboratoire Printemps.
