This first hand report on the work of nurses and other caregivers in a nursing home is set powerfully in the context of wider political, economic, and cultural forces that shape and constrain the quality of care for America's elderly. Diamond demonstrates in a compelling way the price that business-as-usual policies extract from the elderly as well as those whose work it is to care for them. In a society in which some two million people live in 16,000 nursing homes, with their numbers escalating daily, this thought-provoking work demands immediate and widespread attention. "[An] unnerving portrait of what it's like to work and live in a nursing home. . . . By giving voice to so many unheard residents and workers Diamond has performed an important service for us all."—Diane Cole, New York Newsday "With Making Gray Gold, Timothy Diamond describes the commodification of long-term care in the most vivid representation in a decade of round-the-clock institutional life. . . . A personal addition to the troublingly impersonal national debate over healthcare reform."—Madonna Harrington Meyer, Contemporary Sociology
In der Alter(n)sforschung ist nicht zuletzt vor dem Hintergrund der demographischen Entwicklung ein Anstieg der Forschungsbeiträge und ein breites Spektrum an Forschungsansätzen zu beobachten. Dabei tritt in den jüngsten disziplinübergreifenden Publikationen die Annahme hervor, dass die gesellschaftlichen Probleme von Seiten der Wissenschaft am besten mithilfe einer inter- und transdisziplinären Vorgehensweise in Angriff zu nehmen seien. Entgegen diesem Trend fragt der Band dezidiert nach der methodischen Ausrichtung der einzelnen Disziplinen und konturiert damit die Ausgangsbasis für eine fachübergreifende Zusammenarbeit.
Theoretical and ethnographical approaches examine symbolic interactionism's ability to deploy the concepts of structure and agency in sociological explanation. It illuminates the dialectic of oppression and resistance in everyday life, illustrating that actors make meaning through resistance.

It is designed to meet the needs of those disciplinary and nondisciplinary problem-oriented social inquirers for a comprehensive overview of the methodological literature. The text is divided into 7 sections: Overviews of methodological approaches in the social sciences Cases, comparisons and theory Quantification and experiment Rationality, complexity and collectivity Interpretation, critique and postmodernity Discourse construction Engagement. Edited by two leading figures in the field, the Handbook is a landmark work in the field of research methods. More than just a 'cookbook' that teaches readers how to master techniques, it will give social scientists in all disciplines an appreciation for the full range of methodological debates today, from the quantitative to the qualitative, giving them deeper and sharpen insights into their own research questions. It will generate debate, solutions and a series of questions for researchers to exploit and develop in their research and teaching.
