Durable inequality by Charles Tilly( Book )

25 editions published between 1998 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 875 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Tilly presents a powerful new approach to the study of persistent social inequality. Acknowledging that all social relations involve fleeting, fluctuating inequalities, he concentrates on those inequalities that last, often through whole careers, lifetimes, and organizational histories - durable inequalities. How do such long-lasting, systematic inequalities in life chances arise, and how do they come to distinguish members of different socially defined categories of persons? Exploring the nature, forms, and functioning of representative paired and unequal categories such as male/female, black/white, and citizen/noncitizen, Tilly argues that the basic causes of these and similar inequalities greatly resemble one another. In contrast to the case-by-case explanations that prevail in contemporary analyses of inequality, his account is one of process. Categorical distinctions arise, Tilly says, because they enable people who control access to value-producing resources to solve pressing organizational problems. Whatever the "organization" is - as small as a household or as large as a government - the resulting relationship of inequality persists because parties on both sides of the boundary dividing the categories come to depend on that solution, despite its drawbacks

"Why? is a book about the explanations we give and how we give them - a look at the way the reasons we offer every day are dictated by, and help constitute, social relationships. Written in an easy-to-read style by distinguished social historian Charles Tilly, the book explores the manner in which people claim, establish, negotiate, repair, rework, or terminate relations with others through the reasons they give."--Jacket

Credit and blame by Charles Tilly( Book )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Social scientist Charles Tilly explores the complexities of human relationships, examining what's really going on when we assign credit or cast blame. Everybody does it, but few understand the hidden motivations behind it. With his customary wit and insight, Tilly takes a thought-provoking look at the ways people fault and applaud each other and themselves. The stories he gathers range from the everyday to the altogether unexpected, from the revealingly personal to the insightfully humorous. Drawing examples from literature, history, pop culture, and much more, Tilly argues that people seek not only understanding through credit and blame, but also justice. The punishment must fit the crime, accomplishments should be rewarded, and the guilty parties must always get their just deserts. This book that revolutionizes our understanding of the compliments we pay and the accusations we make.--From publisher description
Dynamics of contention by Doug McAdam( Book )

27 editions published between 2001 and 2008 in English and Chinese and held by 627 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past two decades the study of social movements, revolution, democratization and other non-routine politics has flourished. And yet research on the topic remains highly fragmented, reflecting the influence of at least three traditional divisions. The first of these reflects the view that various forms of contention are distinct and should be studied independent of others. Separate literatures have developed around the study of social movements, revolutions and industrial conflict. A second approach to the study of political contention denies the possibility of general theory in deference to a grounding in the temporal and spatial particulars of any given episode of contention. The study of contentious politics are left to 'area specialists' and/or historians with a thorough knowledge of the time and place in question. Finally, overlaid on these two divisions are stylized theoretical traditions - structuralist, culturalist, and rationalist - that have developed largely in isolation from one another." http://www.loc.gov/catdir/description/cam021/2001016172.html
Contention and democracy in Europe, 1650-2000 by Charles Tilly( Book )

28 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Contention and Democracy in Europe, 1650-2000 analyzes relationships between democratization, de-democratization, and contentious politics. Building on recent theoretical innovations, Contention and Democracy uses a sustained comparison of French and British histories since 1650 as a springboard for more general comparisons across Europe. It goes on to demonstrate that democratization occurred as a result of struggles during which (as in 19th-century Britain and France) few, if any, of the participants were self-consciously trying to create democratic institutions. Favorable circumstances for democratization, it shows, vary from era to era and region to region as functions of previous history, international environments, available models of political organization, and predominant patterns of social relations. Many reversals - substantial phases of de-democratization - occurred in the European experiences surveyed."--Jacket
Regimes and repertoires by Charles Tilly( Book )

17 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using examples drawn from many areas - G8 summit and anti-globalization protests, Hindu activism in 1980s India, nineteenth-century English Chartists organizing on behalf of workers' rights, the revolutions of 1848, and civil wars in Angola, Chechnya, and Kosovo to name a few - Tilly shows that such episodes of contentious politics unfold like loosely scripted theater. Along the way, Tilly also brings forth powerful tools to sort out the reasons why certain political regimes vary and change, how the people living under them make claims on their government, and what connections can be drawn between regime change and the character of contentious politics."--Jacket

Contested Mediterranean spaces : ethnographic essays in honour of Charles Tilly( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is well known that Charles Tilly left scholars of big structures, large processes, and huge comparisons a tall research agenda. It is less acknowledged that he also left political ethnographers an impressive and provocative set of tools. In the skilled hands of the contributors to this insightful volume, the 'Tilly toolbox' is put to good work in the service of a theory-driven and empirically-grounded exploration of Mediterranean contentious landscapes."--Javier Auyero, University of Texas, Austin; Editor, Qualitative Sociology."
