BISAC: SOC026000

This edited volume presents some of the latest research in the field of sociology. Chapter One presents a research study of the processes through which food concentrates and reflects migrant cultures while it becomes means of expression, survival and cultural identity for diasporic communities, focusing on two films. Chapter Two explores issues of diversity and multiculturalism in the recent history of Europe. Chapter Three investigates the extent of internet addiction among adolescents. Chapter Four discusses mass migration and explains how it has forced a change in the global perspective of social policy, specifically in the context of child development and parenting. Chapter Five examines the fandom of South Korean popular music in France. Chapter Six adopts the “critical theory” hypothesis to explain structuralism and analyze the complexities of contemporary global politics. Chapter Seven assesses how the Communist Party of Spain was affected by the Spanish Civil War. Lastly, Chapter Eight deals with the challenges faced by whistleblowers in post-Soviet Russia.
