Despite longstanding traditions of tolerance, inclusion, and democracy in the United States, dissident citizens and social movements have experienced significant and sustained - although often subtle and difficult-to observe - suppression in this country. Using mechanism-based social-movement theory, this book explores a wide range of twentieth century episodes of contention, involving such groups as mid-century communists, the Black Panther Party, the American Indian Movement, and the modern-day globalization movement.

This book explores the economic coping practices of rural widows in the aftermath of the Cambodian civil war. War produces a preponderance of widows, often young widows with small children in their care. Rural widows must feed their families and educate their children despite rural poverty and the lack of opportunities for women. The economics of widowhood is therefore a significant social problem in less developed countries. The widows' predominant economic plan was to combine rice cultivation with an assortment of microenterprises, a "rice plus" strategy. Many widows were unable to grow enough rice on their land to feed their families. They filled the hunger gap by raising cash through microenterprises to purchase additional rice. Gender work roles were both permeable and persistent, allowing a flexible sexual division of labor in the short run but maintaining traditional roles in the long run. Most widows called on relatives or exchanged transplanting labor for male plowing services, although a few women took up the plow themselves. The study also explores widows' access to key economic resources such as land, credit, and education. War decimated widows' family support networks, including the loss of children, their social security. The study concludes that Cambodia's gender arrangement offered many economic options to widows but also devalued their labor in a cultural structure of inequality. Gender, poverty, and war interacted to reduce widows' financial resources, accounting for their economic vulnerability.

This book examines how and why mothers with disabled children became activists. Leading campaigns to close institutions and secure human rights, these women learned to mother as activists, struggling in their homes and communities against the debilitating and demoralizing effects of exclusion. Activist mothers recognized the importance of becoming advocates for change beyond their own families and contributed to building an organization to place their issues on a more public scale. In highlighting this under-examined movement, this book contributes to the scholarship on Disability Studies, Women's Students, Sociology, and Social Movement Studies.

In The Death and Life of Great American Cities durchleuchtet Jane Jacobs 1961 die fragwürdigen Methoden der Stadtplanung und Stadtsanierung in Amerika, der "New Yorker" nannte es das unkonventionellste und provozierendste Buch über Städtebau seit langem. Die deutsche Ausgabe wurde schnell auch im deutschsprachigem Raum zu einer viel gelesenen und diskutierten Lektüre. Sie ist jetzt wieder in einem Nachdruck zugänglich, mit einem Vorwort von Gerd Albers (1993), das nach der Aktualität dieser Streitschrift fragt.

Forschungsarbeit aus dem Jahr 2010 im Fachbereich Medien / Kommunikation - Public Relations, Werbung, Marketing, Social Media, Note: keine, , Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Wie können Marken und Handel mit Social Media Geld verdienen? Social Commerce, die Verschmelzung von Social Media und E-Commerce, könnte die Antwort sein. Social Networks haben den Mainstream erreicht und viele Marken reagieren darauf: Sie integrieren Shopping-Funktionen auf Facebook, tweeten Sonderangebote auf Twitter und integrieren Social Media Tools in ihre E-Commerce-Plattformen. Und damit erzielen sie beeindruckende Erlöse. Basierend auf Erkenntnissen der Konsumpsychologie und Erfahrungen von Marken wie Adidas, Apple, Burberry und Levi's liefert der Social Media Stratege der Syzygy Gruppe Dr. Paul Marsden mit der neuen Studie eine Einführung in die aufkommenden Trends Social Commerce und Social Shopping. Was sind sie, wie funktionieren sie und warum sollten sie Teil Ihrer digitalen Marketing Strategie sein?
