Writing for social scientists : how to start and finish your thesis, book, or article by Howard Saul Becker( Book )
31 editions published between 1986 and 2010 in English and held by 2,331 libraries worldwide
Students and researchers all write under pressure, and those pressures--most lamentably, the desire to impress your audience rather than to communicate with them--often lead to pretentious prose, academic posturing, and, not infrequently, writer's block. Sociologist Howard S. Becker has written the classic book on how to conquer these pressures and simply write. First published nearly twenty years ago, Writing for Social Scientists has become a lifesaver for writers in all fields, from beginning students to published authors. Becker's message is clear: in order to learn how to write, take a deep
Symbolic interaction and cultural studies by Howard Saul Becker( file )
12 editions published between 1990 and 2009 in English and held by 1,444 libraries worldwide
Symbolic interactionism, resolutely empirical in practice, shares theoretical concerns with cultural studies and humanistic discourse. Recognizing that the humanities have engaged many of the important intellectual currents of the last twenty-five years in ways that sociology has not, the contributors to this volume fully acknowledge that the boundary between the social sciences and the humanities has begun to dissolve. This challenging volume explores that border area

Tricks of the trade : how to think about your research while you're doing it by Howard Saul Becker( Book )
18 editions published between 1988 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,269 libraries worldwide
Tricks of the Trade will help students think about research projects. Assisted by Becker's sound advice, students will be able to make better sense of their research and simultaneously generate fresh ideas on where to look next for new data. Becker's tricks cover four broad areas of social science: The creation of the "imagery" to guide research; methods of "sampling" to generate maximum variety in the data, the development of "concepts" to organize findings, and the use of "logical" methods to explore systematically the implications of what is found. Becker's advice ranges from simple suggestions such as changing an interview question from "Why?" to "How?" (as a way of getting people to talk without asking for justification) to more technical advice such as how to manipulate truth tables
Art worlds by Howard Saul Becker( Book )
28 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,191 libraries worldwide
"A classic sociological examination of art as collective action, Art Worlds explores the cooperative network of suppliers, performers, dealers, critics, and consumers that - along with the artist - "produces" a work of art. This twenty-fifth anniversary edition is updated with a new dialogue between Becker and eminent French sociologist Alain Pessin about the extended social system in which art is created and with a new preface in which the author talks about his own process for creating this influential work."--BOOK JACKET

"S'appuyant sur sa longue expérience d'enseignant et de chercheur, le sociologue Howard S. Becker traite des différentes représentations de la société. Il met au jour et questionne les conditions de production et de réception de ces représentations, qu'il s'agisse de graphiques, de tableaux statistiques, de cartes routières, de modèles mathématiques, de photographies, de pièces de théâtre, d'enquêtes sociologiques ou de romans. En une série d'études passionnantes, l'auteur se demande et nous demande, non sans humour, comment parler de la société." (4e de couv.)
