"Ferdinand Tonnies's Gemeinschaft und Gesellschaft (first published in 1887) is a classic of social and political theory in the later-modern period. It focuses on the universally endemic clash between small-scale, kinship and neighbourhood-based 'communities' and large-scale competitive market 'societies'. This theme is explored in all aspects of life - in political, economic, legal and family structures; in art, religion and culture; in constructions of 'selfhood' and 'personhood'; and in modes of cognition, language and human understanding. Tonnies is best known as one of the 'founding fathers' of modern sociology, but the present work lays greater emphasis on his relationship to European political thought and to developments in philosophy since the seventeeth-century scientific revolution, particularly the legacies of Hobbes and Kant. It can be read at many different levels: as a response to developments in Bismarckian Germany; as a more general critique of the culture of modernity; as a theoretical exercise in social, political and moral science; and as an unusual commentary on the inner character of 'democratic socialism'. This new translation and introduction make Tonnies's classic but difficult work accessible to English-speaking readers interested in social and political theory, intellectual and social history, language and cultural studies, and the history of economic thought."--Jacket

Culture of a contemporary rural community : El Cerrito, New Mexico by Olen E Leonard( Book )

This is a report on one of six communities which were studied contemporaneously by six different participant observers or field workers during the year 1939. Each study was sufficiently independent of the other five to warrant, in fact make desirable, separate treatment and publication. The reader, however, will gain full understanding of the findings only when he has read the six studies as a group. The six communities selected for study -- El Cerrito, New Mexico; Sublette, Kansas; Irwin, Iowa; Lancaster, Pennsylvania; Landaff, New Hampshire; and Harmony, Georgia -- were not selected in an attempt to obtain a geographic sampling of contemporary rural American communities but as samples of, or points on, a continuum from high community stability to great instability. At one end of the continuum, an Amish community Lancaster, Pennsylvania, was selected. At the other end of the continuum a "Dust Bowl" community in Kansas was selected. The other four communities, for one reason or another, range themselves between these extremes. El Cerrito is a stable community culturally, in fact almost a cultural island. It has, however, suffered severely because it has lost a large portion of the land which supported it and because it is poorly equipped with technologies to meet the competition of other producing areas. Something approaching commonalty of observations was attempted by all field observers in that a basic manual of instructions was available to and used by all of them. Each observer, however, had wide latitude in making his observations and free rein in writing up his findings. A seventh report in this series will present the complete methodology used in the six studies and a body of generalizations which grows out of the combined observations of all who participated in the studies
