Turner and Edmunds on Generations Culture and Society

Thursday – working from home today – sharpening up a proposal for a D.Min dissertation on generational culture, theological reflection and ministry formation.

Last night searching online I found Generations, Culture and Society, a decent study on generational theory from a sociological perspective – written by June Edmunds & Bryan S. Turner, sociologists at Cambridge University, UK. What looks so good about this material is that it provides a reflection on Karl Mannheim’s theory of ‘generational cohort’ that is not based in the USA, and looks at applications to gender, race and ethnicity.

Postscript. See my January 2006 review of the book.
