Beginning with a discussion of the political commonplaces in Elizabethan England, Talbert then focuses on the writings of Sir Thomas Smith, Richard Hooker, Sir Philip Sidney, and authors of seditious tracts and Elizabethan pageants. There emerges a process of thought that was conventional to Shakespeare's contemporaries and much more complex than that indicated by the Elizabethan "world-picture" alone.

The Problem of Order in Changing Societies

Criminology makes visible a society's values. Statutes and police and court records reveal assumptions about race, class, and gender relations as well as about property rights and matters of civil propriety. The six essays in this volume examine Argentina from the eighteenth century to the 1930s and Uruguay during the nineteenth century to show the links between crime and the social and economic order. The topics of crime and policing explored in these essays depict the underside of social change. What emerge are detailed accounts of how elites maintained public order amidst changes arising from urbanization, commercial development, and internal and international migration. Examined in this social history of crime during modernization in the Río de la Plata region are wife-beating and rape, knife fights in the pulpería (a combination general store and tavern), prostitution, and public drunkenness and disorder. Anyone interested in the social consequences of change will find these essays in historical criminology offer a challenging perspective on the process of modernization in the Río de la Plata region.

At the end of the twentieth century, many fear that the bonds holding civil society together have come undone. Yet, as the noted scholar Dennis Wrong shows us, our generation is not alone in fearing a breakdown of social ties and a descent into violent conflict.

Presently the world is undergoing tremendous social, cultural and economic transformation. For sociologists, the challenge is arriving at a sound mapping of this tumultuous world stage. In this book, the contributing authors consider solidarity as a cognitive problem of basic science. They examine how solidarity is produced and reproduced, how it is related to social processes, and how such processes can be formalized and create conditions for productively studying their properties. Mathematical models and representations are presented by the authors as a coherent set of tools for understanding many social phenomena.

Wonder and Education

Many people, whether educators or not, will agree that an education that does not inspire wonder is barren. Wonder is commonly perceived as akin to curiosity, as stimulating inquiry, and as something that enhances pleasure in learning, but there are many experiences of wonder that do not have an obvious place in education. In Wonder and Education, Anders Schinkel theorises a kind of wonder with less obvious yet fundamental educational importance which he calls 'contemplative wonder'. Contemplative wonder disrupts frameworks of understanding that are taken for granted and perceived as natural and draws our attention to the world behind our constructions, sparking our interest in the world as something worth attending to for its own sake rather than for our purposes. It opens up space for the consideration of (radical) alternatives wherever it occurs, and in many cases is linked with deep experiences of value; therefore, it is not just important for education in general, but also, more specifically, for moral and political education.

World of our Making is a major contribution to contemporary social science. Now reissued in this volume, Onuf’s seminal text is key reading for anyone who wishes to study modern international relations. Onuf understands all of international relations to be a matter of rules and rule in foreign behaviour. The author draws together the rules of international relations, explains their source, and elaborates on their implications through a vast array of interdisciplinary thinkers such as Kenneth Arrow, J.L. Austin, Max Black, Michael Foucault, Anthony Giddens, Jurgen Habermas, Lawrence Kohlberg, Harold Lasswell, Talcott Parsons, Jean Piaget, J.G.A. Pocock, John Roemer, John Scarle and Sheldon Wolin.
