Andrew P. Carlin’s review of “Bringing War to Book” by R. Woodward and Neil. K. Jenkings #sssi #military #sociology

Andrew P. Carlin writes that “The business of sociologists is reading books about books—internal debates on the value of this or that theory, ad infinitum. Bringing War to Bookis about books too, but in a refreshingly different manner: the core of its data derives from interviews with former service personnel who have published memoirs of their experiences of war.”

J Raclaw’s Review of “Embodying Family Choreography” by Marjorie Goodwin and Asta Cekaite #sssi #emca #sociology

Goodwin and Cekaite’s book “Embodying Family Choreography “is arguably many things at once, though not to its detriment: it is a powerful resource for scholars in childhood studies and the sociology of the family to see how families collaboratively move through the routine forms of care and control that constitute the family unit, and the text will offer these scholars a useful introduction to the value of conversation analysis and micro-ethnography“, writes Joshua Raclaw (@joshraclaw) in his review.
