Work - Family Challenges for Low - Income Parents and Their Children

Work - Family Challenges for Low - Income Parents and Their Children (Penn State University Family Issues Symposia Series) (17 Papers) by Ann C. Crouter
Lawrence Erlbaum Associates | December 1, 2003 | English | ISBN: 080584600X | 304 pages | PDF | 1003 KB

The area of work and family is a hot topic in the social sciences and appeals to scholars in a wide range of disciplines. There are few edited volumes in this area, however, and this may be the only one that focuses on low-income families–a particularly important group in this era of welfare-to-work policy. Interdisciplinary in nature, the volume brings together contributors from the fields of psychology, social work, sociology, demography, economics, human development and family studies, and public policy. It presents important work-family topics from the point of view of low-income families at a time in history when welfare to work programs have become standard.

Quest for American Sociology: Robert E.Park and the Chicago School by Fred Matthews
English | Aug. 1977 | ISBN: 0773502432 | 298 Pages | PDF | 23.06 MB


Robert E. Park was a key figure in the development of the 'Chicago school' which played a dominant role in the evolution of American sociology in the inter-war years. This biographical study deals in depth with Park's life before his appointment to the University of Chicago in 1913, and investigates the personal and intellectual influences that formed the independent nature and well-stocked mind he brought to the academic world. A decade of work as a newspaper reporter and several years spent at Tuskegee as writer and publicist for Booker T. Washington helped shape what were to become the main foci of his sociological interests: the modern city and the interaction of its varied races and cultures.
