C.Wright Mills and the Ending of Violence by John D. Brewer

Book Description

This book has two aims: to clarify the meaning of C. Wright Mills's depiction of the sociological imagination; and to use this to develop a sociological framework that assists in understanding the process by which communal violence has ended in Northern Ireland and South Africa. The contrast between these two societies is a familiar one, but the book is novel by developing an explanatory framework based on Mills's 'sociological imagination'. This model merges developments in the two countries at the individual, social structural and political arenas in order to account for the emergence of their peace processes.

Religion, Civil Society, and Peace in Northern Ireland by John D. Brewer Religion, Civil Society, and Peace in Northern Ireland, Paperback (December 2013)

Religion is traditionally portrayed as nothing but trouble in Ireland, but the churches played a key role in Northern Ireland's peace process. This study challenges many existing assumptions about the peace process, drawing on four years of interviewing with those involved, including church leaders, politicians, and paramilitary members.

Public Value of the Social Sciences by John D. Brewer Public Value of the Social Sciences, Paperback (March 2013)

John Brewer explores the essential nature of the social sciences and the ways in which notions of 'impact' and 'value' could be reframed to generate a more productive debate around their contribution to the good of society.

Peace Processes by John D. Brewer Peace Processes, Paperback (January 2010)

Peace processes are mostly very fragile. This engagingly written book takes a bold new approach to the topic by beginning from the premise that sociology can identify those factors that help to stabilize them. The book draws a distinction between the political and social dimensions of peace processes, arguing that each is dependent on the other.

Foundations of Multimethod Research by John D. Brewer Foundations of Multimethod Research, Paperback (September 2005)

Discussing the aspects of the multimethod research approach, this book offers an explanation of how a planned synthesis of various research techniques (fieldwork, surveys, experiments, and nonreactive studies) can be used to improve social science knowledge.
