Item description for Unraveling Ties: From Social Cohesion to New Practices of Connectedness by Yehuda Elkana, Ivan Krastev, Elisio Macamo & Shalini Randeria...
Unraveling Ties is a unique addition to current debates in sociology---a compilation of essays mapping the creation of community life in a modern world that often appears alienating, cold, and even threatening. Topics range from family life and friendship to the integral role of the deviant in society. The result is a thoughtful, meticulously researched volume that will be useful to sociologists, economists, and anyone interested in the creation of community in a decentralized and rapidly globalizing world.
