Kenji Kosaka and Masahiro Ogino (eds), A Quest for Alternative Sociology (paperback)
The twelve chapters are arranged in four sections - Unremedied Suffering, 'Taming' Suffering, Reciting Suffering and Multidimensional Happiness - and explore the effects of war, economic exploitation, transnational migration, ecological disaster and family arrangements on people's happiness. The various studies examine issues in Japan, the United States, the Netherlands, India, the Philippines, Singapore and Vietnam. Through these diverse studies, the authors aim to define an intersected domain of sociological research through the examination of three sub-domains: Alternative social research, alternative society, and alternative sociology.
