Item description for Human Values and Social Change: Findings from the Values Surveys (International Studies in Sociology and Social Anthropology) by Ronald L. Inglehart...

This book presents findings based on a unique source of insight into the role of human values - the World Values Survey and the European Values Survey, covering 78 societies containing over 80 percent of the world's population. The findings reveal large and coherent cross-national differences in what people want out of life. Four waves of surveys, from 1981 to 1999-2001, reveal the impact of changing values on societal phenomena. Evidence from 11 Islamic societies demonstrates that a distinctive Islamic culture exists - but the democratic ideal is endorsed overwhelmingly. Other analyses examine gender equality and democracy; corruption and democracy; social capital in Vietnam; the class of civilization; political satisfaction in global perspective; trust in international governance; and Israeli and South African values.

Reviews - What do customers think about Human Values and Social Change: Findings from the Values Surveys (International Studies in Sociology and Social Anthropology)?

For us geeks out there...  Dec 1, 2006
Inglehart is undoubtedly THE go-to expert on social value changes and shifts in industrial society. Through his work with the World Values Survey, he has made significant contributions to social science. This book is a great introduction to his body of work and summarizes nicely the patterns human behaviors have formed over the decades. Building on his earlier work, Inglehart finds significant shifts away from survivalism towards social postmodernism in industrial societies of the post-WWII era. He shows the links between such postmodernism and social movements in a characteristically scientific way throughout the book. It's a bit heady and not exactly a "fun" read, but quite accurate, and worth careful consideration. I would recommend this to anyone doing research in the social science field, advanced undergraduates, or even a layperson looking to gain greater understanding of the human family's behavior over the last decades. If you're wondering why we have the society that we do, this is the right resource with which to explore such a question. Once you read this, you'll also want to pick up Modernization and Postmodernization, Inglehart's 1997 book that is a bit more in-depth. As a political science graduate student researching social movements, Inglehart's work has been invaluable to just about every lit review I've written. If you're only looking at this because it's on a requirement list for a class, thank your teacher for making you read this.
