Three prominent social thinkers discuss how modern society is undercutting its formations of class, stratum, occupations, sex roles, the nuclear family, and more.

Risk society : towards a new modernity by Ulrich Beck( Book )

35 editions published between 1992 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 691 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Underpinning the analysis is the notion of the 'risk society'. The changing nature of society's relation to production and distribution is related to the environmental impact as a totalizing, globalizing economy based on scientific and technical knowledge becomes more central to social organization and social conflict."--Publisher's description

What is globalization? by Ulrich Beck( Book )

22 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 526 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new book offers an engaging and challenging introduction to the thorny paths of the globalization debate. Beck aims to clarify the ambiguities of the debate, to distinguish between the various types of globalization and to warn the reader of conceptual traps. Most importantly, however, he opens up the horizon for political responses to globalization." "Beck focuses on two main questions: what does globalization mean? and how can it be moulded politically?" "This book will be an important text for students and scholars in politics, sociology, geography and the social sciences generally. It will also appeal to a broader audience interested in key social and political issues in the world today."--Jacket
World risk society by Ulrich Beck( Book )

48 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 498 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book by one of Europe's leading social and political theorists draws together key essays which argue that a new frame of reference is needed to understand the world risk society in which we live today. Beck focuses on ecological and technological questions of risk, and their sociological and political implications. In doing so, he discusses and answers some of the criticisms provoked by his earlier and much cited work on risk society." "This book is an important text for students and scholars in sociology and politics. It will also be read by a broader audience interested in the key social and political questions of our time."--Jacket
The reinvention of politics : rethinking modernity in the global social order by Ulrich Beck( Book )

21 editions published between 1993 and 2015 in English and held by 397 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Those who advocate ideas about "postmodernity" and "post-industrialism" offer radical critiques of existing social and political institutions. But they provide very little in place of those institutions. It is all very well to criticize the limitations of social democracy, the welfare state, trade unionism, and social classes as agents of change, but once these have been thrown into crisis what other institutions do we have to depend on? The Reinvention of Politics, suggests we should think again about forging a new model of politics for our times. An active, devolved civil society, Beck argues, can sustain the claim that modernity is inherently democratic. For many issues now - for example, those involving technology, environment protest, the family, or gender relations - belong to the domain of what the author calls "subpolitics". The postmodern critique of modernity, in Beck's view, is based on mistaken generalizations about a transitional phase in the evolution of modern society. What is needed, he argues, is the reinvention of politics, corresponding to the new demands of a society which remains modern, but which has progressed beyond the earlier form of industrial society. This book will be essential reading for second-year undergraduates and above in the fields of social and political theory, sociology and political science

The risk society and beyond : critical issues for social theory by Barbara Adam( Book )

20 editions published between 1992 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ulrich Beck's Risk Society established risk on the sociological agenda. It brought together a wide range of issues centring on environmental, health and personal risk. It provided a rallying ground for researchers and activists in a variety of social movements and became a reference point for state and local policies in risk management." "The Risk Society and Beyond charts the progress of Beck's ideas, traces their evolution and demonstrates why the issues raised by Beck reverberate throughout social theory." "Covering new risks that Beck did not foresee, associated with the emergence of new technologies, genetic and cybernetic, The Risk Society and Beyond is unique because it offers the reader both an introduction to the main arguments in Risk Society and develops a range of critical discussions of aspects of this and other works by Beck. This book also includes a reply to his critics from Beck himself."--Jacket

Power in the global age : a new global political economy by Ulrich Beck( Book )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new book throws light on the global power games being played out between global business, nation-states and movements rooted in civil society. Ulrich Beck offers an account of the changing nature of power in the global age and assesses the influence of the ever-expanding counter-powers." "The author puts forward the provocative thesis that, in an age of global crises and risks, a politics of 'golden handcuffs' - the creation of a dense network of transnational interdependencies - is exactly what is needed in order to regain national autonomy, not least in relation to a highly mobile world economy. It is imperative that the maxim of nation-based realpolitik - that national interests have necessarily to be pursued by national means - be replaced by the maxim of cosmopolitan realpolitik. The more cosmopolitan our political structures and activities. Beck suggests, the more successful they will be in promoting national interests, and the greater our individual power in this global age will be."--Jacket
Distant love : personal life in the global age by Ulrich Beck( Book )

30 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in 8 languages and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In their new book, Ulrich Beck and Elisabeth Beck-Gernsheim investigate all types of long-distance relationships, marriages and families that stretch across countries, continents and cultures. These long-distance relationships comprise so many different forms of what they call 'world families', by which they mean love and intimate relationships between individuals living in, or coming from, different countries or continents. In all their various forms these world families share one feature in common: they are the focal point in which different aspects of the globalized world become embodied in the personal lives of individuals. Whether they like it or not, lovers and relatives in these families find themselves confronting the world in the inner space of their own lives. The conflicts between the developed and developing worlds come to the surface in world families - they acquire faces and names, creating confusion, surprise, anger, joy, pleasure and pain at the heart of everyday life. -- Provided by publisher

German Europe by Ulrich Beck( Book )

22 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 279 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The euro crisis is tearing Europe apart. But the heart of the matter is that, as the crisis unfolds, the basic rules of European democracy are being subverted or turned into their opposite, bypassing parliaments, governments and EU institutions. Multilateralism is turning into unilateralism, equality into hegemony, sovereignty into the dependency and recognition into disrespect for the dignity of other nations. Even France, which long dominated European integration, must submit to Berlin's strictures now that it must fear for its international credit rating. How did this happen?

15 editions published in 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Case studies follow on France, Japan and China, and there are six chapters on transnational processes as they affect culture and society. An epilogue reflects on definitions of Americanization and anti-Americanism, and their consequences for the world
Sociologie per l'Europa : Ulrick Beck, Gerard Delanty, Anthony Giddens, Jürgen Habermas( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in Italian and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oggetto di questo volume è l'Europa. Più precisamente, l'analisi che di essa hanno sviluppato noti sociologi europei. Si tratta di prospettive, ciascuna a suo modo, coerenti con una visione cosmopolita della società globale; impegnate a costruire una società più aperta; che superano il nazionalismo e sono attente al rapporto dinamico tra stato-nazione, Europa e globalizzazione. Il testo non è solo una mappa di orientamento per quanti vogliano avvicinarsi ai tema da una prospettiva sociologica, esso è anche la testimonianza di un impegno in favore del progetto di Costituzione europeo
