Beschreibungen

This book discusses the rationale for community, the varieties of communities, the effect of social change on communities and many other factors, tying the concept to the various levels of human interaction, from the global to the individual.
Community is a key concept in sociology. In the last decade, especially with the explosion of electronic communication, the definition of community has changed. There is now a need to define the concept of community and tie it to the various levels of human interaction, from the global to the individual.
Currently there are many books that address many aspects of community, but there is a lack of text which "connects" the concept of community with the range of issues from the macro level to the micro level.
This book will discuss the rationale for community, the varieties of communities, the effect of social change on communities and many other factors of connectedness as the costs for losing it.
Social Connections.- Conceptions of Community.- Common Ties.- Fragmented Ties.- Communities in Crisis.- Communities of Exclusion and Excluded Communities.- Connections of Faith.- Vital Bonds.- The Social Internet.- Solitary Communities.
Intervention to bring about beneficial social change is the theme of this second edition of Sociological Practice.  Written for upper division and graduate students interested in careers in sociological practice or applied sociology, the authors show how sociological theories and methods can be used in intervening to solve or prevent current social problems.
The books include Applications, Tables, and Figures to expand upon and illustrate the narrative text.  Changes to this edition include up to date coverage of all topics including a new chapter on multifactor multilevel problem solving.
Discusses the rationale of community (the purpose it serves), the varieties of communities, the effects of social change on communities, the causes and solutions for community problems, and what is a moral community and a good citizen
