Series: Advances in Sociology Research
BISAC: SOC026000

This volume is comprised of seven chapters that detail advances in sociology research. By comparing two tales of the Caucasus and by understanding them within the context of Russian imperialism, the author shows that Hadji Murad is the culmination of Leo Tolstoy’s thinking on civilization and man, of nature and of natural morality. Chapter two proposes a systematization of modernization tendencies affecting secularization, and extensively discusses predictors of religiosity. The author of chapter three discusses some of the cognitive foundations that underlie vaccine hesitancy. The aim of chapter four is to closely examine the effects COVID-19 response has had on gender equity as well as on the disabled employees in the tourism sector in Zimbabwe and to suggest strategies that can be employed to mitigate these effects. In chapter five, the main objective of the study is to reduce poverty in Zimbabwe through informal sector support. Chapter six discusses agroforestry practices based on local wisdom of the indigenous people on the island of Java. In the final chapter, the author provides an examination of an international historiography on legal history, the two World Wars and the Cold War.
