Sociology and Catholic Social Teaching: Contemporary Theory and Research offers critical insights into a badly needed alternative vision to the alienation and cynicism that plague our political discourse. Arguing that Catholic social teaching stands as an important morally grounded framework for addressing today’s pressing social problems, contributors explore the general principles and specific criteria required for both evaluating and advocating models of social improvement. This anthology is meant for advanced undergraduate and graduate students of sociology or Catholic social thought, as well as scholars in these areas interested in how sociology and Catholic social teaching converge.

Zusammenwachsen tut weh Wer davon ausgeht, dass Konfliktfreiheit ein Gradmesser für gelungene Integration und eine offene Gesellschaft ist, der irrt. Konflikte entstehen nicht, weil die Integration von Migranten und Minderheiten fehlschlägt, sondern weil sie zunehmend gelingt. Gesellschaftliches Zusammenwachsen erzeugt Kontroversen und populistische Abwehrreaktionen – in Deutschland und weltweit. Aladin El-Mafaalani nimmt in seiner Gegenwartsdiagnose eine völlige Neubewertung der heutigen Situation vor. Wer dieses Buch gelesen hat, wird- verstehen, warum Migration dauerhaft ein Thema bleiben wird und welche paradoxen Effekte Integration hat- erfahren, woher die extremen Gegenreaktionen kommen- in Diskussionen besser gegen Multikulti-Romantiker auf der einen und Abschottungsbefürworter auf der anderen Seite gewappnet sein- erkennen, dass es in Deutschland nie eine bessere Zeit gab als heute und dass wir vor ganz anderen Herausforderungen stehen, als gedacht

The New Sociology of Knowledge

A classical sociologist can be defined as someone whose "works occupied a central position among the sociological ideas and notions of an era." Following this criterion, Michaela Pfadenhauer demonstrates the relevance of Peter L. Berger’s work to the sociology of knowledge. Pfadenhauer shows that Berger is not only a sociologist of religion, but one whose works are characterized by a sociology-of-knowledge perspective. Berger stands out among his fellow social scientists both quantitatively and qualitatively. He has written numerous books, which have been translated into many languages, and a multitude of essays in scholarly journals and popular magazines. For decades, he has played a role in shaping both public debate and social scientific discourse in America and far beyond. As a sociologist of knowledge, Berger has played three roles: he has been a theoretician of modern life, an analyst of modern religiosity, and an empiricist of global economic culture. In all areas, the focus on processes rather than status quo is characteristic of Berger’s thinking. This book provides an in-depth view on the critical thinking of one of the most important sociologists that present times has to offer. It includes four written essays by Berger.

This is the first book to discern the contribution of Du Bois' work to criminology and criminal justice through a comprehensive review of his papers, articles and books. Beginning with reflections from his childhood, the author traces Du Bois' ideas on crime and justice throughout his life. This includes a unique analysis of Du Bois' experience as an object of the criminal justice system, a review of his FBI file, his 1951 trial and his pioneering social scientific research program at Atlanta University. The book illustrates the depth of Du Bois' interest in the field and reveals how he was a pioneer in key areas of criminology and criminal justice. The book contains five appendices which include four original papers written by Du Bois as well as maps from The Philadelphia Negro.
