    Title: Breaking the exclusion cycle

    Abstract: Why does social exclusion persist, and what can one do to stop it? This book proposes a theory of how individual behavior contributes to social exclusion, a novel method for measuring that behavior, and solutions to ending it. Based on original fieldwork among Central and Eastern European Roma, the largest ethnic minority in Europe (yet still very understudied), and non-Roma, Ana Bracic develops a theory she calls the exclusion cycle, through which anti-minority culture gives rise to discrimination by members of the majority, and minority members develop survival strategies. Members of the majority resent these strategies, assuming that they are endemic to the minority group rather than an outcome of their own discriminatory behavior

    Abstract: 'Socially Undocumented' offers a new vision of immigration justice that focuses on 'socially undocumented identity' in the United States. Reed-Sandoval argues that to be socially undocumented is to possess a real social identity that does not always track one's legal status in the United States

    Abstract: 'Come Out, Come Out, Whoever You Are' examines the variety of ways various people and groups use the concept of coming out to resist stigma and mobilize for social change. It examines how American lesbians, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer (LGBTQ+) people have used the term in different ways over time. It also examines how four diverse U.S. social movements - the fat acceptance movement, undocumented immigrant youth movement, the plural-marriage family movement among Mormon fundamentalist polygamists, and the #MeToo movement - have employed the concept to advance their cause. It sheds light on these particular struggles, while illuminating broader questions regarding social change, cultural meaning, and collective mobilization

    Title: Privilege lost
    Subtitle: who leaves the upper middle class and how they fall

    Abstract: One in two white youth born into the upper-middle class will fall from it. Drawing upon 10 years of longitudinal interviews with over 100 American youth, this book shows which upper-middle-class youth are most likely to fall, how they fall, and why they do not see it coming. The book shows that upper-middle-class youth inherit different amounts of academic knowledge, institutional insights, and money from their parents. Those raised with more of these resources enter class reproduction pathways, while those raised with fewer of these resources enter downwardly mobile paths. Of course, upper-middle-class youth whose families give them few resources could switch courses by acquiring these resources from their community

    Abstract: In India, a young democratic system has undermined the legitimacy of a 2000 year old social system that excluded and humiliated an entire people by treating them as untouchables. This incomplete, but irreversible change in Indian society and politics has been authored by the mobilization of some of the most marginalized citizens in the world and counts as one of the most significant achievements of Indian democracy. This work presents evidence showing that a marginalized group gains more from participating in a social movement and dividing support among parties than from voting en bloc for an ethnic party

    Abstract: In 'The Ambivalent State', Javier Auyero and Katherine Sobering examine the fascinating world of clandestine relationships between police officers and drug dealers in Argentina. Drawing on a unique combination of ethnographic research and hundreds of pages of wiretapped phone conversations, they analyze the inner-workings of police-criminal collusion and how they shape drug markets, policing in poor urban areas, and daily life at the urban margins

    Abstract: Starting with penal populism, this text examines a paradox: the illiberal turn that liberal democracy has taken. Based on ethnographic fieldwork on a housing estate, it moves from why liberal democracy has taken a punitive turn, to what democracy means to these residents and how they experience their daily engagements with the state

    Abstract: Based on a study of Madrid (1850-1930), 'Discordant Notes' argues that sound, noise, street music and flamenco have played a key role in structuring the transition to modernity by helping to negotiate social attitudes and legal responses to fundamental problems such as poverty, insalubrity, and crime

    Abstract: Based on ethnographical study of Muslim neighbourhoods, this work argues that it is not merely communal discrimination and prejudice that causes formation of segregated Muslim enclaves. Through an intricately weaved argument the text explains that rather than being excluded from the city, the Muslim areas contain a segment of immobile labour and capital that are uniquely positioned for exploitation in the globalised world. Segregated spaces provide for accumulation in favour of other spaces in the city
