C. Wright Mills and the Ending of Violence
This book has two aims: to clarify the meaning of C. Wright Mills's depiction of the sociological imagination; and to use this to develop a sociological framework that assists in understanding the process by which communal violence has ended in Northern Ireland and South Africa. The contrast between these two societies is a familiar one, but the book is novel by developing an explanatory framework based on Mills's 'sociological imagination'. This model merges developments in the two countries at the individual, social structural and political arenas in order to account for the emergence of their peace processes.Review'I found [Brewer's work] full of interest and have certainly learned a great deal from it. The idea of drawing upon and applying Mills to [this] field of study is one which I liked and it works...a scholarly piece of work on a timely topic.' - John Eldridge, Professor of Sociology, University of Glasgow, UK'There is an inevitable tension between writing about C. Wright Mills and doing the kind of comparative analysis done here...it works. I ended up with a much better understanding of what Mills was on about [and] the Northern Ireland-South Africa comparison worked very well. I learnt a lot.' - David McCrone, Professor of Sociology, University of Edinburgh, UKAbout the AuthorJOHN D. BREWER is Professor of Sociology at the Queen's University of Belfast.
