Disasters, conflict, and privacy


Hiya!

I thought sociologists and kindred spirits might have better references for 
these folks. My first thought was Kai Erikson's _Everything in its Path_

Is there anything more up-to-date in terms of the Sociology of Disaster or War?

Thanks,

Perhaps someone on this list knows some good references....

I am teaching an advanced seminar on privacy this semester. Students
are required to do a research project for the final. One of the
students has come up with a great idea -- examining what effects
disasters and armed conflict have on the privacy (short term and long
term) of both victims and responders.  Unfortunately, there appears
to be little published that relates to the topic.

If you are aware of any data, publication, study or other material
that supports this topic, please let me know about it, or else
contact the student directly: <mcpherso@...>.  We're hoping
to find material he can use so that he doesn't need to pick another,
more pedestrian, topic.

Thanks in advance.

Erikson's Everything In It’s Path is often cited as a classic work in sociology, but he does have a more recent publication on the sociology of disasters—from the 1990s:  A New Species of Trouble: Explorations in Disaster, Trauma, and Community   New York:  W W Norton & Company.

Looking for reports on level of fraud in poverty programs


Hi folks,

We've reached the inequality and startification section of intro and I'm getting the usual stories of
people ripping off the system. Can anyone point me to studies of the amount of fraud in programs like food
stamps, welfare, etc? 

Thanks,

James

Re: Looking for reports on level of fraud in poverty programs


James,

I dealt with this issue yesterday when discussing Social Stratification.

Here's what I do:

1. I indicate that information based on "personal experiences" is very
limited and should not be generalized to the larger macro population.

2. I discuss the "fallacy of the dramatic instance" where a very *vivid*
*dramatic* instance gains much media publicity and leads people to
generalize to the larger population. E.G. Welfare Cadillac song based on
case where women on welfare drove a Cadillac and Johnny Cash wrote a
song about it.

3. I discuss WEALTHFARE where corporations, are given tons of money and
the local, state and national govt. get little in return for such. Paul
Klugman wrote a great article documenting such in TIME magazine.
Reprinted in ANNUAL EDITIONS: SOCIOLOGY. 

Best Wishes,
Michael
