The use of tobacco is the leading preventable cause of death in the United States. Over the past twenty-five years, a formidable social movement has emerged in response to this vital public health problem. How has the tobacco control movement become such a significant force in shaping contemporary public policy, social norms, and the habits of millions of Americans? The Fight against Big Tobacco develops two central arguments to answer this question. First, the movement was able to grow rapidly by building upon a rich "infrastructure" of health organizations and networks of health pro

The field of social cognitive neuroscience has captured the attention of many researchers during the past ten years. Much of the impetus for this new field came from the development of functional neuroimaging methods that made it possible to unobtrusively measure brain activation over time. Using these methods over the last 30 years has allowed psychologists to move from simple validation questions -- would flashing stimuli activate the visual cortex -- to those about the functional specialization of brain regions-- are there regions in the inferior temporal cortex dedicated to face processing

The polemical aspects of Mirowsky and Ross’s first edition caused a stir both in public health and in sociological circles. The new, second edition traverses the same terrain, though updating, and adds sections on "patterns" and new surveys research. In these pages the authors summarize, synthesize, and elaborate their observations and thoughts from two decades of research. Their views remain, for the most part, firm, and in an age that is still more therapeutic than not, will cause new controversy.

Serial murder is worthy of study not so much for its intrinsic significance, but rather for what it suggests about the concerns, needs, and fears of the society that has come to portray it as an "ultimate evil." Using Murder is a highly original study of a powerful contemporary mythology by a criminologist and historian versed in the constructionist literature on the origins of "moral panics."

Social Capital explains the importance of using social connections and social relations in achieving goals. Social capital, or resources accessed through such connections and relations, is critical (along with human capital, or what a person or organization actually possesses) in achieving goals for individuals, social groups, organizations, and communities. The book introduces a theory that forcefully argues and shows why "it is who you know," as well as "what you know" that makes a difference in life and society.
