L'Entretien compréhensif by Jean-Claude Kaufmann( Book )

31 editions published between 1996 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ce manuel présente de façon concrète les différentes étapes permettant de mener à bien un entretien compréhensif et d'élaborer un cadre d'interprétation. La démarche consiste à s'appuyer sur les catégories de pensée des informateurs, tant pour conduire les entretiens de façon efficace que pour formuler des hypothèses. Elle peut s'appliquer au-delà de l'entretien en face à face, dans les nouveaux espaces d'enquête offerts par Internet. Jusqu'où et comment est-il possible de théoriser en partant du terrain ? (4ème de couverture)
Love online by Jean-Claude Kaufmann( Book )

22 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The internet is changing the rules of the game of love. In a world where anything is possible, a potential date - whether it be a one-night stand or the start of a more lasting relationship - can be just a click away. Anyone looking for love online can throw off their inhibitions and can say what they have never dared to before. The internet revolution has ensured that online dating has now become both widespread and commonplace. Online users can buy into the consumerist illusion that they can choose a man or woman in the same way that they would shop for groceries - this is the new hypermarket of desire. Women in particular can enjoy a new sexual assertiveness. Where once they might have looked for an emotional attachment, they are now demanding simply the right to have a good time. However, love cannot be reduced to such simple terms. The apparently risk-free world of online dating is at odds with love in real life, which has its own demands and expectations. You cannot introduce another person into your life and expect everything to remain the same. Human beings have a way of turning your life upside down. -- Book Description
The curious history of love by Jean-Claude Kaufmann( Book )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in French and English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The one emotion that matters most to many people is the one about which social thinkers rarely speak - love. For many people, love is the thing that matters most in their lives: they are searching for love, hoping to find in love a kind of happiness that they cannot find in their work or by surrounding themselves with material goods. But where does this peculiar and powerful blending together of love and happiness come from, and why do we find it such a compelling idea today? In this short book Jean-Claude Kaufmann offers a fresh account of the history of a feeling unlike any other. The modern idea of love as passion was born in the 12th century but it was marginalized by the rise of a kind of instrumental, calculating reason that became increasingly central to modern societies. As calculating reason began to encroach on the personal domain, many individuals sought to escape from it, searching for happiness elsewhere. As our societies become dominated by calculating reason and selfish individualism, we search elsewhere for the kind of happy love that will heal all our wounds. This is why we experience so many changes of heart in our personal lives: at times we are coldly calculating and then, a few moments later, we sacrifice ourselves to love without a second thought--Book cover
The single woman and the fairytale prince by Jean-Claude Kaufmann( Book )

43 editions published between 1999 and 2015 in 10 languages and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The number of one-person households is rising steeply all over the world and a growing proportion of these 'new singles' are women. It is estimated that one woman in three lives on her own. This development reflects general social trends, ranging from the rising divorce rate to the growing professionalization of women and their dissatisfaction with a traditional model that offers them a future organized solely around 'husband-baby-home'. At the same time, the attractions of that model still linger and the fairytale prince is by no means a figure from a story or a remote past. Even in an age in which the Internet promises that love is 'just a click away', many women still wait for their prince to come." "Jean-Claude Kaufmann's study, based mainly on an analysis of a sample of the hundreds of letters sent to Marie Claire magazine after it published a first-hand account of the single life, is a portrayal of the lives, aspirations and sometimes despair of the 'new single woman'."--Jacket

Comme dans ses livres précédents, l'auteur part d'un phénomène d'apparence mineure (les seins nus sur la plage) pour en interroger les codes et les règles et, au-delà, la signification. Son observation des plages le conduit au bout du compte à analyser la place du corps et le rôle du regard dans notre société. La montée de l'individualisation, la médiatisation, la fragilité accrue du lien social dessinent les lignes de fuite de nos nouveaux vertiges. (Editore)

Gripes : the little quarrels of couples by Jean-Claude Kaufmann( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We all know what it's like to be annoyed by little things that our husband, wife or partner does - leaving the cap off the toothpaste tube, leaving the toilet lid up, leaving dirty clothes on the floor - and we know how easily these little grievances of everyday life can spin out of control. In this brilliant new book the sociologist Jean-Claude Kaufmann shows us how and why sparks can suddenly fly even in the most well-adjusted couples. They see themselves as being in total harmony but they are mistaken! The clash between their uniquely individual attitudes to life rumbles on in silence until suddenly erupting in emotional outbursts each time an object or an attitude reveals for the thousandth time the unbearable and incomprehensible otherness of the partner. When this occurs, a whole panoply of tactics is deployed, ranging from the combative (secret acts of revenge) through the neutral (sulking) to the subtly loving. But these stormy episodes within relationships can have a happy ending, for it is through learning to overcome these irritations and aggravations that love is ultimately strengthened."--Jacket

Louis Vuitton city bags : a natural history by Jean-Claude Kaufmann( Book )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and Italian and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume is an unprecedented history of Louis Vuitton's women's bags, the most coveted line of accessories in women's fashion. At the heart of Louis Vuitton are its City Bags, a range of women's bags that dates back to the turn of the twentieth century. Featuring the trademark monograms of the house, the City Bag story began with the Steamer, a resort bag designed in 1901 to be packed inside a much larger steamer trunk. These bags have in a hundred years formally diversified into a dizzying array of handbags for every conceivable function demanded by the modern woman. Profoundly influential, City Bags are now known to millions by their descriptive names (Keepall, Bucket, Papillon, Alma, Locket, Noe, Speedy) and are still evolving into more fantastical forms. Lavishly illustrated with new and archival photography, historical graphics, landmark editorials, and ad campaigns, the volume traces the history of these specific bag families, and examines the earliest specimens and today's most sought-after collectibles, including Vuitton's collaborations with Takashi Murakami, Stephen Sprouse, Richard Prince, Yayoi Kusama, and Rei Kawakubo and one-off projects by Zaha Hadid, Shigeru Ban, Vivienne Westwood, Helmut Lang, Andrée Putman, and of course, Marc Jacobs. Louis Vuitton: City Bags is an ambitious volume on the creation and cultivation of a cultural phenomenon."--Publisher's website
