"Down to Earth Sociology, Ninth Edition, continues to open new windows onto the complex social realities that shape our world as it provides a firm foundation for exploring the discipline of sociology and the dynamic principles underlying society itself. Thoroughly revised and expanded, the Ninth Edition includes a number of exceptional new readings: Deborah Tannen on the differing communication styles of men and women; George Ritzer on the "McDonaldization" of society; Arthur J. Vidich and Joseph Bensman on resistance to social change; James M. Jasper and Dorothy Nelkin on the animal rights movement; Patricia Yancey Martin and Robert A. Hummer on fraternities and rape on campus, and Arturo Madrid on changes in racial-ethnic relations." "Together with thirteen essential new articles, classic contributions from C. Wright Mills, Elliot Liebow, Arlie Hochschild, Jonathan Kozol, among many others, emphasize participant observation - which gives students a sense of "being there" by using expert firsthand reporting. Henslin's forty-seven selections highlight the most significant themes of contemporary sociology, ranging from the sociology of gender, power, politics, sports, and religion, to the contemporary crises of violent crime, poverty, homelessness, and AIDS. Down to Earth Sociology includes a unique Correlation Chart that ties every article to related chapters in the thirty-eight most widely used introductory textbooks."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Sigismund of Luxembourg (1368-1437), king of Hungary, Roman German king and finally emperor of the Holy Roman Empire, is not only a prominent figure of the late Middle Ages in Catholic Western Europe; always close were also his contacts with the Orthodox World in Eastern and Southeastern Europe. These contacts did not only include his crusade against the Ottomans, which failed at Nicopolis in 1396, but continued until the end of his reign. Particularly intensive were of course his relations with the two Orthodox Danubian principalities of Moldavia and Wallachia, and with the Orthodox Christians living within the Kingdom of Hungary in Transylvania in large numbers. The studies combined in this volume try to illuminate this aspect of the activity of Sigismund, his diplomatic, military and church-political efforts to achieve unity, both between Eastern and Western Church and within the Western Church, and to organise the defense against the Ottoman expansion. Some contributions also show that Sigismund's efforts arose the attention of his Byzantine contemporaries who mention him in various sources. Because of this interdisciplinary view from east to west and vice versa, the volume is of interest both for medieval studies directed at Western Europe as well as at Eastern Europe.
