Wer das Ehrenamt fördern will, muss es verstehen. Dieses Buch liefert eine fundierte Analyse des Ehrenamts, der Motive, die ehrenamtliches Handeln antreiben, und der Situationen, in denen es entsteht. Dabei werden gängige Vorurteile über das Ehrenamt aufgedeckt und anhand von empirischen und theoretischen Argumenten entkräftet. Mithilfe der neopragmatistischen Handlungstheorie von Hans Joas zeigt die Autorin die Kontingenz, die Körperlichkeit und die Sozialität des Handelns im Ehrenamt auf. Schließlich entwickelt sie Vorschläge zur Förderung des Ehrenamts für Staat, Wirtschaft und Non- Profit-Organisationen auf der Basis eines wirtschafts- und sozialethischen Konzepts.

In this study assessing black civic participation after the civil rights movement, Fredrick C. Harris, Valeria Sinclair-Chapman and Brian D. McKenzie demonstrate that the changes in black activism since the civil rights movement is characterized by a tug-of-war between black political power on one side and economic conditions in black communities on the other. As blacks gain greater access and influence within the political system, black participation in political activities increases while downward turns in the economic conditions of black communities produce less civic involvement in black communities. Examining changes in black activism from the early 1970s to the 1990s, this tug-of-war demonstrates that the quest for black political empowerment and the realities of economic and social life act as countervailing forces, in which negative economic and social conditions in black communities weaken the capacity of blacks to organize so that their political voices can be heard.

Die Bedingungen, unter denen radikale Protestbewegungen entstehen, sind zentral für die Erklärung sozialen Wandels. Andreas Pettenkofer liefert eine – bisher fehlende – kritische Gesamtdarstellung der entsprechenden Theorien. Darüber hinaus entwirft er in Anknüpfung an Konzepte der klassischen Religionssoziologie eine Theorie, um die Mechanismen auch des kulturellen Wandels zu erklären, die mit Protestbewegungen verbunden sind. Er ermöglicht damit ein genaueres Verständnis von Protestphänomenen. Zugleich zeigt er, welchen Nutzen die Analyse radikaler Protestbewegungen für die allgemeine sozialtheoretische Diskussion bringt.

Public Relations As Activism

This volume applies postmodern theory to public relations, providing an alternative lens to public relations theory and practice and developing public relations theory within the context of postmodernism. Author Derina R. Holtzhausen focuses on two key issues and their application to public relations theory and practice: the postmodernization of society, and the possibilities postmodern theories offer to explain and understand public relations practice in today’s changing society. Holtzhausen's argument is that existing theory should be evaluated from a postmodern perspective to determine its applicability to postmodernity. Utilizing practitioner perspectives throughout the volume, she explores the practice of public relations as a form of activism. The volume is intended for scholars and students in public relations. It may be used as a supplemental text in advanced courses on public relations theory, PR management, organizational communication, and related areas.
