This classic book uses current social problems in discussing basic sociological principles as well as concepts specific to the different social topics. Well-balanced in approach, it uses three major sociological perspectives (social disorganization, value conflict, and personal deviation) to analyze a wide variety of contemporary American social problems and research data, explaining the origin and existence of each social problem and indicating courses of action for changing social conditions and the personal sacrifices necessary to implement social change. Explores the nature, role, and function of vested interest groups, and considers civil liberties of minority groups and the American society. Practicing social workers or community activists..

From the Dust Jacket Flap - It is a rare individual who becomes a legend in his own time. The Reverend B. M. G. Williams seems to have accomplished just that. His familiar title, Uncle Bert, implies an existing warm relationship, yet few people remain who knew him when he first arived in El Paso, Texas in 1894. It is for this reason that Bernice Dittmer's thoroughly researched biography of B. M. G. Williams provides yeoman service. She tells his story with loving care, reaching far back into his English heritage to give us information never before made public. The reader is caught up in the Horatio Alger-like chronicle of a young immigrant English lad-under-educated and perhaps underprivileged by today's standards-who progressed from hotel employee to grocery clerk to meat packing salesman and eventually became president of a leading bakery. But it was not the role of a successful businessman that Bert Williams longed to fill. Closely bound to the Anglican church as a boy, his one real goal was to be a minister-seemingly unattainable. The story of his remarkable achievement in reaching his heart's desire and finally becoming full rector of St. Clement's Episcopal Church in 1954 at the age of 78 makes fascinating reading. Through the author's guidance we are able to see the Rev. B. M. G. Williams as he really is, truly loving and compassionate, a man of firm beliefs, willing to risk all to stand for what he considered right; yet possessing such characteristics as anger, pride, petulance and despair. The Rev. Uncle Bert is exceptional in that he attained the heights in all his endeavors, business, religious, civic, charitable and cultural and became El Paso's Most Beloved Citizen. Thirty-Five page black and white photographic Album with a wide range of pictures dating back to the 1890s. There is an 1899 photograph of St. Clements of El Paso. Color frontispiece portrait of Williams at age 80. . First Edition. Hard Back. Good/Very Good. 6" x 9"., The Church of St. Clement - The Texian Press (Printer), 1970, Prentice-Hall, 1970. Book.

An increasingly common North American diagnosis, Tourette syndrome affects 2.9 to 5.2 per 100,000 Americans, most frequently male. Kushner (history of medicine, San Diego State Univ.) describes the shifting histories of this syndrome since it was first described by French neurologist Georges Gilles de la Tourette in 1885. Experts have variously attributed the Tourette complex of behaviors to moral defects, neurological damage, repressed sexual urges, and chemical imbalances. Such explanations, Kushner argues, conceal cultural assumptions that prevent physicians from fully hearing their patients stories and thus influence medical practice in damaging ways. Kushner cautions his readers that patients themselves, unconstrained by medical orthodoxy, have much to teach. A compassionate and absorbing work of medical history for academic and larger public libraries. -Kathleen Arsenault, Univ. of South Florida at St. Petersburg Lib. * One could doubtless read many books without coming on the phrase "ticcing coprolalics," but it is here, and it is serious business. It refers to the involuntary jerking movements (ticcing) and the untimely outbursts of cursing or foul language (coprolalia) emitted by people (mostly males) who suffer from Tourette syndrome. Kushner, a professor of the history of medicine at San Diego State University, reviews the history of efforts to understand and treat the affliction. Unfortunately, the cause is still unknown. Kushner believes the syndrome may be a reaction to a previous infection, but it has also been treated as a psychiatric problem. He expresses the hope that current research "will lead eventually to robust interventions aimed at the causes rather than the symptoms of these behaviors." - Scientific American, Harvard University Press, 1999, Discovery Publishing House Pvt. Ltd., 2004. Hardcover. New. Poverty Reduction as an overall objective of the global development industry is not new. The only problem is that so far it has not really worked. Despite several decades of economic growth and huge development Aid disbursements, the number of Countries the United Nations calls "least developed" (those with a per capita Income of less than 900 US$ a year) has in fact nearly doubled since 1971, from 25 to 49. In the last decade (1990-2000) and despite all development efforts-not even one Country was able to graduate from this group to a Higher income level, maybe with the exception of Botswana.Meanwhile, poverty reduction has generated its own history. This programme has covered a wide range of approaches starting from the World Bank`s small-farmers-strategies in the 1970`s via the costly Structural adjustment Policies of the 1980`s to the recent poverty reduction strategies of the 1990`s. Once more, the next development decade (2000-2010) has written "Attacking Poverty" on its banner. It seems that something must have gone wrong along the way. What (bitter?) lessons have been learnt from previous experience? Have they been factored into the new set of policies? Were there possibly some fundamental flaws which were overlooked, and can better Results be expected during the next period? Or do the many failures and disappointments demonstrate that there is some systemic "resistance to change" by those in power in the least developed countries and perhaps also by the Poor themselves?
