The Sociology of Culture

The Sociology of Culture traces the point of sociological exploration of the term culture. Culture, here, is determined by the sociologically favoured concept, that, our culture is what we are. This deduction gives sanction to the harmony between oriental and occidental philosophies with a sociological outlook. This work efforts to reach that point of unification.

This book starts primarily, interpreting the debate between the meaning and definitional aspects. Culture here is comprehended as a continuum, a stream of events or an analytical journey from Anthropology to Sociology, a flow that transports the tangible and intangible elements of human life. This is not any historical analysis, rather it is rich in exploring the basic dimensions of those specific cultural traits which are enunciated through everyday life experience. It alludes to our routine of strongly sedimented practices, beliefs and meanings. Diverse approaches of studying culture become evidently important along with the searching of elements of culture. Here a vivid and in depth endeavour has been taken to inquire both the dimensions.

The particular analytical variables, that culture considers sociologically, have been interpreted. This book delineates the cultural expression of the space of shared information in post-truth reality and tries to establish the relationship among culture, politics, ideology and identity. It elaborately considers the current from familiar existence to global cultural knowledge, the economic, technological, lingual, ethnic, gendered and local-global dimensions.

Primarily concerned with culture, a special importance has also been given to the Marxist perspective of cultural praxis. Postmodern aspects are also incorporated here and to do that this effort tries to analyze the issues of culture and education. The work is also enriched with the empirical interpretation of trending affairs such as visual culture and its sociological dimensions with social assertion related to commodification of culture in respect of global social change and policy making perspectives of the present COVID-19 pandemic scenario. The connection among tolerance, intolerance, democracy, altruistic value and humanity is also reevaluated sociologically in the rhythm of culture.

Editorial Review

From Publishers Weekly

In Golemon's so-so third Event Group thriller (after 2007's Legend), the shadowy U.S. government organization specializing in paranormal assignments, led by military maverick Col. Jack Collins, must stop the descendants of 2,000 children who survived the sinking of Atlantis 11,000 years earlier from seizing a key that will enable them to manipulate the tectonic plates of the earth's crust. After Collins's team finds a map of the lost continent during a raid on a mansion in Katonah, N.Y., the Atlanteans retaliate by slaughtering the FBI agent working with Collins as well as Event Group members manning the storage facility where the raid's spoils were being studied. The formulaic fight scenes, betrayals and 11th-hour rescues are on a par with the implausible premise. Even the dramatic conclusion will leave many readers unaffected.(Aug.)

From Booklist

Golemon’s third novel in the Event Group series proves to be his best yet. The Event Group is a secret military organization that specializes in the retrieval and study of ancient technology. The premise this time is elaborate: more than 10,000 years ago, the citizens of Atlantis developed a weapon so powerful that it destroyed their civilization and led to the story of Noah’s flood. The device they used is now in the hands of a society that traces their lineage back to the dynasty of Caesar. Colonel Jack Collins and his team must stop the group from using the superweapon and unleashing massive devastation. The resulting tale is a mix of the James Rollins action-heavy adventure, the military gadgetry of Tom Clancy, the pacing of the television series 24, and the conspiracy theories devoured by fans of the radio show Coast to Coast AM. For no-frills adventure fans with a taste for over-the-top plots. --Jeff Ayers --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
