Quarry Hill Flats, once both the pride and shame of its city of Leeds, was an iconic Modernist symbol of the 1930s. It marked the first use of a prefabricated building system for a large-scale council estate, replacing a notorious slum. But it lasted barely a generation – its complete demolition was announced as Alison Ravetz was finishing this study. First published in 1974, this book is unique in its use of all estate records from conception to destruction, as well as in its comprehensive approach, including aspects usually missing in council housing studies – notably the intimate experience of residents, and a fraught, long-drawn-out building period. Ravetz argues that the Flats’ ‘failure’ was due not to social breakdown, as repeatedly alleged, but rather to a rigidity of design and management unable to accommodate gradual, incremental change. This has continuing implications for the operation of bureaucratically designed and controlled ‘social housing’ today.

From sugar to indentured labourers, tobacco to reggae music, Europe and North America have been relentlessly consuming the Caribbean and its assets for the past five hundred years. In this fascinating book, Mimi Sheller explores this troublesome history, investigating the complex mobilities of producers and consumers, of material and cultural commodities, including: foodstuffs and stimulants - sugar, fruit, coffee and rum human bodies - slaves, indentured labourers and service workers cultural and knowledge products - texts, music, scientific collections and ethnology entire 'natures' and landscapes consumed by tourists as tropical paradise. Consuming the Caribbean demonstrates how colonial exploitation of the Caribbean led directly to contemporary forms of consumption of the region and its products. It calls into question innocent indulgence in the pleasures of thoughtless consumption and calls for a global ethics of consumer responsibility.

Brands are everywhere: in the air, on the high-street, in the kitchen, on television and, maybe even on your feet. But what are they? The brand, that point of connection between company and consumer, has become one of the key cultural forces of our time and one of the most important vehicles of globalization. This book offers a detailed and innovative analysis of the brand Illustrated with many examples, the book argues that brands: * mediate the supply and demand of products and services in a global economy * frame the activities of the market by functioning as an interface * communicate interactively, selectively promoting and inhibiting communication between producers and consumers * operate as a public currency while being legally protected as private property in law * introduce sensation, qualities and affect into the quantitative calculations of the market * organize the logics of global flows of products, people, images and events. This book will be essential reading for students of sociology, cultural studies and consumption.

Unsparing and important. . . . An informative, clearheaded and sobering book.—Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post (1999 Critic's Choice) Inner-city black America is often stereotyped as a place of random violence, but in fact, violence in the inner city is regulated through an informal but well-known code of the street. This unwritten set of rules—based largely on an individual's ability to command respect—is a powerful and pervasive form of etiquette, governing the way in which people learn to negotiate public spaces. Elijah Anderson's incisive book delineates the code and examines it as a response to the lack of jobs that pay a living wage, to the stigma of race, to rampant drug use, to alienation and lack of hope.

Charles Derber introduces and vividly explains the idea of a sociopathic society and why the idea has become necessary to understand today s world.Sociopathic society is rooted in governments and economies, not psychiatry. The book offers a new sociology of societies organized around antisocial values, which ultimately lead to societal and planetary self-destruction. Most of the sociopathic behaviors are perfectly legal and are perpetrated by governments, financial institutions, and corporate capitalism.Focusing on the United States, Derber connects the dots of Wall Street meltdown, guns and murder, uninhibited greed, the 1% and the 99%, a new crisis of unemployable surplus people, Hurricane Sandy and global warming, cheating scandals, and more including the war on democracy itself.Although the book brings together a breathtaking set of stories of a system run wild, it also offers hope, showing pathways for confronting and avoiding the many ways a society can commit sociocide.

Since the days when Verdi's "Va Pensiero" became the national hymn of liberation for the 1848 Italian Revolution, Music has had a significant political and socio-cultural impact. The current influence of Music in today's culture is explored in the July 2005 issue of American Behavioral Scientist. Based on a 2003 conference sponsored by the American Sociological Association's Sociology of Culture Section and funded by Emory University, the nine articles in the lively issue sum up the major themes in the mushrooming discipline of music sociology and expound on variations such as music and class, race, gender, and self-identity; innovative studies of the consumption of music; distinctive insights into changes in musical production; the role of music in social movements; and analysis of content issues. This issue covers a full range of modern musical styles from ballet to jazz to rock 'n roll to hip-hop to digital music. The Sociology of Music: Sounds, Songs, and Society offers both theoretical and methodological diversity. Among the topics highlighted in the issue are: How popular, professional, and critical recognition of a popular music album affects inclusion in "retrospective cultural canons" such as Rolling Stone's Greatest Albums of All Time (Schmutz) The discursive framing of jazz and its impact on the listener and musician (Appelrouth) Rock 'n roll as a key feature of adult culture and a primary source of self-identity (Kotarba) Whether musical cohesion is a function of structure, interactive achievement, both, or something else (Winther) How digital technologies are transforming the lived experience of music and the relationships between creators, mediators, and publics (Marontate) How Taylor's principles of scientific management reconfigured the organization of modern ballet away from the ballerina and on to the "creative" choreographer and composer (specifically George Balanchine and Igor Stravinsky) (Van Delinder) How historical analysis of record availability and the analysis of song lyrics suggest that Blues Queens such as Bessie Smith were influential beyond the blues and jazz genres (Danaher) The distinct symbolic order and moral boundaries that shaped the "story of jazz" and its impacts on class, race and urban America (Lopes) How hip-hop--with its grim portrayals of urban reality and youth manifestos--can be both the mirror or engine of a social movement (Trapp)
