This volume from Goldsmiths Press examines the career of the cultural studies pioneer Stuart Hall, investigating his influence and revealing lesser-known facets of his work. These essays evaluate the legacies of his particular brand of cultural studies and demonstrate how other scholars and activists have utilized his thinking in their own research. Throughout, Hall's colleagues and collaborators assess his theoretical and methodological standpoints, his commitment to the development of a flexible form of revisionist Marxism, and the contributions of his specific mode of analysis to public debates on Thatcherism, neoliberalism, and multiculturalism. In her contribution, Angela Davis argues that the model of politics, ideology, and race initially developed by Hall and his colleagues in England continues to resonate when applied to America's racialized policing. Other essays focus on Hall's contributions to contemporary political debate and questions of race, ethnicity, identity, migrancy, and diaspora, and discuss Hall's continuing involvement in issues of representation and aesthetics in the visual arts, particularly photography and film.

This handbook provides a survey of the American welfare state. It offers an historical overview of U.S. social policy from the colonial era to the present, a discussion of available theoretical perspectives on it, an analysis of social programs, and on overview of the U.S. welfare state's consequences for poverty, inequality, and citizenship.The American welfare state has long been a source of political contention and academic debate. This Oxford Handbook pulls together much of our current knowledge about the origins, development, functions, and challenges of American social policy. It begins by offering an historical overview of U.S. social policy from the colonial era to the present. This is followed by a set of chapters on different theoretical perspectives available for understanding and explaining the development of U.S. social policy. The three following parts of the volume focus on concrete social programs for the elderly, the poor and near-poor, the disabled, and workers and families. Policy areas covered include health care, pensions, food assistance, housing, unemployment benefits, disability benefits, workers' compensation, family support, and programs for soldiers and veterans. The final part of the book focuses on some of the consequences of the U.S. welfare state for poverty, inequality, and citizenship. Many of the chapters comprising this handbook emphasize the disjointed patterns of policy making inherent to U.S. policymaking and the public-private mix of social provision in which the government helps certain groups of citizens directly (such as social insurance) or indirectly (such as tax expenditures and regulations). With contributions from experts from political science, sociology, history, economics, and other social sciences, The Oxford Handbook of U.S. Social Policy is an invaluable resource for both scholars of social policy in the United States and members of the policymaking world.

"Gleich und Gleich gesellt sich gern" heißt ein altbekanntes Sprichwort - auch die Sozialwissenschaft hat dies bereits zahlreich anhand empirischer Studien belegt. Dennoch blieb bisher die Frage ungeklärt, ob homogene Partnerschaften durch reine Homophilie oder nur duch die soziale Selektivität des Umfeldes entstehen. Durch die Gegenüberstellung und den Vergleich der klassischen Partnerwahl mit dem Partnerwahlverhalten beim Onlinedating versucht diese Arbeit zu erörtern, welche Unterschiede zwischen der Partnerwahl Offline und Online bestehen, ob die Partnerschaften, die Online entstehen durch das heterogenere Partnerangebot auch tatsächlich heterogener sind und ob durch die zunehmende Beliebtheit von Onlinedating die Reproduktion der sozialen Ungleichheit gemindert werden kann.

Iglesias Lopez, Teresa
Thousands of Moroccan women, called porteadoras, are crossing the border daily to the Spanish enclave Ceuta to bring bulks of merchandise back to Morocco. Carrying it on their back, bearing not only the weight of the goods but also the weight of the degrading and humiliating conditions of their job, the women are subjected to a constant violation of their human rights on the doorstep of the European Union. This cross-border trade between Morocco and Spain has been taking place on a significant scale for many years now and is tolerated by the authorities on both sides of the border. Its so-called informality practically has all the features of formality. How has this informal trade developed, why has it become such an established practice and what could be done to improve the porteadoras' situation? This book presents answers and recommendations, spotlighting an important issue and advocating for dignified working conditions for the porteadoras.

Aproximarse un poco al conocimiento de cómo se percibe y autopercibe el embarazo precoz es la intención de este pequeño aporte que, al tratarse de un tema complejo y diverso en sus manifestaciones y connotaciones contextuales amerita no de uno, sino de varios estudios. Se espera que éste sea uno de ellos y que en su sencillez y sus incertidumbres posibilite ampliar la perspectiva de comprensión del tema tratado.

Schülein, Johann August
In diesem Text geht es um die Frage, wie Theorien der Psychodynamik zum Verständnis gesellschaftlicher Prozesse beitragen und was die dazu erforderliche Kooperation können muss. Die Frage, ob sie einen Beitrag leisten können, stellt sich nicht in einer Welt, in der bei aller instrumentellen Rationalität Ängste, Hoffnungen, Hass und Wut, Sehnsüchte und Fantasien sich ins soziale Geschehen einmischen und es mehr oder weniger massiv bestimmen. Psychodynamik ist dabei kein "Störfaktor", sondern ein konstitutiver, motivierender und treibender, ein notwendiger, aber kein pflegeleichter oder gar beliebig kontrollierbarer Faktor jeder sozialen Realität. Um das komplexe Zusammenspiel sozialer und psychischer Realität zu erfassen, bedarf es einer entsprechenden Konzeption, die hier vorgestellt und illustriert wird.

After the granting of the vote to women in 1918, the struggle for womens rights intensified with a nationwide campaign for the right to birth control. This campaign was met with a great deal of hostility; it threatened to overturn Victorian ideas about female sexuality, female empowerment and the traditional roles within the family. The most well known of the campaigners, scientist and early feminist Marie Stopes, opened clinics across England which fitted contraception caps to women for free. The first history of this grassroots social movement, After the Suffragettes offers a window into the social and cultural history of the period, and features new archival material in the forms of memoirs, personal papers and press cuttings. This is an essential contribution to the influential field of womens history and a vital addition to the history of feminism.
