Download E-books Strategic Unionism: Aus der Krise zur Erneuerung?: Umrisse eines Forschungsprogramms (German Edition) PDF

Sociology

By Ulrich Brinkmann

Hans-Jurgen city Seit geraumer Zeit befinden sich die Gewerkschaften in den Gesellschaften des entwickelten Kapitalismus in der shielding. Dies gilt fur die Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika wie fur die Mitgliedstaaten der Europaischen Union und mithin auch fur das wiedervereinigte Deutschland. Auch wenn Ursachen, Reichweite und Uberwindungschancen der shielding unterschiedlich eingeschatzt werden, so hat sich in der politischen und wissenschaftlichen Diskussion ein Konsens dahingehend herausgebildet, dass die Gewerkschaften im Ubergang vom nat- nal organisierten Wohlfahrtsstaats-Kapitalismus zum transnationalen Fina- marktkapitalismus einen substantiellen Bedeutungs- und Einflussverlust erfahren haben. Diese Einschatzung kann sich auf wissenschaftlich vielfach belegte und - litisch intensiv diskutierte Indikatoren stutzen. Die Erosion der gewerkschaft- chen Verankerung in den Betrieben, der Ruckgang gewerkschaftlicher Verha- lungs- und Verteilungsmacht in den Arenen der Betriebs- und Tarifpolitik, die Verluste an Mitgliedern und finanziellen Ressourcen und nicht zuletzt der an- kennungspolitische Ausschluss der Gewerkschaften aus den korporatistischen Funktionseliten alle diese Entwicklungen werden benannt, wenn von einem sakularen Machtverlust oder einem historischen Niedergang der Gewerkschaften die Rede ist. Selbst durchaus gewerkschaftsfreundlich gesinnte Autoren lassen diese Entwicklungstrends mitunter im Negativszenario eines Kapitalismus ohne Gewerkschaften (Walter Muller-Jentsch) zusammenfliessen oder formulieren politische Streitschriften mit dem provokativen Titel Wozu noch Gewerksch- ten? (Oskar Negt). Kurzum, die allgemeine Zeitdiagnose lautet: Es steht nicht intestine um die Gewerkschaften! Doch wie so oft verweigert sich die komplexe Realitat auch diesmal allzu gradlinigen und deterministischen Prognosen."

Download E-books Die Zukunft des Todes: Heterotopien des Lebensendes (Kulturen der Gesellschaft) PDF

Sociology

By Thorsten v. Benkel

Sterben und Tod sind alltägliche Vorkommnisse, die üblicherweise als außeralltäglich angesehen werden. Die Tendenz, eher von abstrakten Begriffen als von konkreten Lebensbeendigungen auszugehen, ist weit verbreitet. Eine gesamtgesellschaftliche Perspektive jedoch muss über die Ebene subjektiver Betroffenheit hinausgehen und den Tod als Herausforderung wie auch - in der sozialen Behandlung von Todesfällen - als Bestätigung normativer Konzepte betrachten. An Beispielen von Sterbe- und Todesräumen wie Friedhof, Hospiz, Aufbahrungsstätten, Pathologie, Trauerhalle oder Krematorium zeigen die Beiträge des Bandes, dass das picture des Todes sich wandelt und neue Sinnzusammenhänge entstehen.
