Seasons Such As These

by Cynthia J. Bogard, Seasons Such As These Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Seasons Such As These book, Homelessness had become a social problem that was primarily not about solving the nation's housing crisis. The pressing question becomes: How (and why) did homelessness become the social problem in its own right, one that was only tangentially related to the problem of inappropriate or insufficient housing? Why, when people demanded that something be done about homelessness, did they get specific policies and unintended outcomes? Cynthia Bogard is not content with the shorthand answers that rested on bias and ideology, such as "conservative politics bred conservative policies" or "American individualism precludes government investment in housing." This did not explain homelessness sufficiently, especially given all the advocacy and research that had occurred in the 1980s and 1990s. Examining these "claimsmaking activities," as constructionists call them, however, is a daunting task because the activities engaged in by people in the attempt to persuade others are fluid, subtle, and complicated as are the responses to these social actions. This raised a second set of issues that the author is concerned with: How can we adequately represent and sociologically examine this very complicated human activity of social problems construction? Who does the construction, and to what effect? Bogard's answer to these questions is a book that can be read in two ways and on multiple levels. For those who are interested in the story of the career of homelessness as a social problem in America's two "national" cities, the book should be read from the beginning through the conclusion as a straight narrative. The technical matter in the appendix can be ignored. But for those readers with an interest in social problems constructionism, however, this book is meant as a "cook-book" of sorts. Each chapter emphasizes a feature of constructionism, such as an important group of claims makers or an important aspect of the claims making process. The work highlights a major feature in advanced societies: the intersection of interests and claims. Social constructions may be real, but they are comprised of no less real social interests. The work marks a real departure and advance over the original formulations of construction theory in social research. Cynthia J. Bogard is associate professor of sociology at Hofstra University.

Seasons Such As These

by Natalie L. M. Petesch, Seasons Such As These Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Seasons Such As These book, The Leprosarium posits a future in which a big-brother company called Vita will run the entire show. Deviate from the bland norm at any point and you find yourself a "leper," institutionalized, deprogrammed in Maximum Gregariousness chambers, punished by "the Rundmarch" - a run backwards on a sand track meant to break the spirit - and in time graduated back into society. When a director of this nefariousness finds his wife playing tickle with another Grievance Adjuster, the master is mastered. Some very pruned, tidied up prose is expended over this thin scenario. The Long Hot Summer of Yasha K. runs more realistically. It deals with a white doctor in Detroit who, hospitalized for tuberculosis during World War II, grows up with a surfeit of untapped responsibility, which he showers upon blacks. But when his black mistress, Liza, becomes pregnant, Dr. Yasha demands an abortion - how can she think of bringing another black baby into this vale of tears? Liza goes through with it, then kicks Yasha out and becomes a Muslim. --Amazon.com.

Hobos Hustlers And Backsliders

by Teresa Gowan, Hobos Hustlers And Backsliders Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Hobos Hustlers And Backsliders book, Gowan shows some of the diverse ways that men on the street in San Francisco struggle for survival, autonomy, and self-respect. Living for weeks at a time among homeless men--working side-by-side with them as they collected cans, bottles, and scrap metal; helping them set up camp; watching and listening as they panhandled and hawked newspapers; and accompanying them into soup kitchens, jails, welfare offices, and shelters--Gowan immersed herself in their routines, their personal stories, and their perspectives on life on the streets. She observes a wide range of survival techniques, from the illicit to the industrious, from drug dealing to dumpster diving. She also discovered that prevailing discussions about homelessness and its causes--homelessness as pathology, homelessness as moral failure, and homelessness as systemic failure--powerfully affect how homeless people see themselves and their ability to change their situation.
