Introduction – SAMPLE #1

October 5, 2016
Classical Sociological Theory

Criminal justice reform has recently become a significant social and political issue in America. High profile shootings of unarmed individuals, charges of racial bias in policing, and charges of unconstitutional police tactics have illuminated the need for criminal justice reform. Recently, the Department of Justice Civil Rights Division investigated the Baltimore City Police after the controversial death of Freddie Gray stemming from his questionable arrest. A similar action took place after the controversial death of Michael Brown and the subsequent unrest that followed. The police departments of Ferguson and St. Louis County were found to have committed various violations of civil rights. Similarly, the Department of Justice report on Baltimore City Police found a multitude of civil rights violations including unconstitutional stops, searches and arrests, racial bias, and excessive force.
The report included so many glaring examples of civil rights violations it lead Washington Post journalist Radley Balko to state, ?I?ve read a lot of Justice Department reports on local police agencies. This is one of the worst I?ve ever seen? (Balko 2016). Blako?s Washington Post article titled ?The Justice Department?s stunning report on the Baltimore Police Department? chronicles the various violations quoted in the Department of Justice report. Radley Balko is a journalist currently working for the Washington Post where he writes about criminal justice, the drug war, and civil liberties. In 2013, Radley Balko published the book ?Rise of the Warrior Cop: The Militarization of America’s Police Forces?. According to his Washington Post bio, Balko?s work has been cited by the U.S. Supreme Court and the Mississippi Supreme Court.
As a student studying sociology and criminology, I am very interested the discourse surrounding the reform of police departments. In addition, I was raised in Baltimore which gives me a personal interest in the Department of Justice report on the Baltimore City Police. In this handbook, I will apply the theories of classical sociologists to the important topic of criminal justice reform.

Handbook Introduction ? SAMPLE #2
This Handbook will be examining the topic of raised Epipen prices, as discussed in the New York Times article entitled ?How Parents Harnessed the Power of Social Media to Challenge EpiPen Prices? by Tara Parker-Pope, a journalist and novelist who writes on health issues. This article discusses how one Brooklyn mother?s petition to address the rising cost of the EpiPen, a life-saving drug that treats severe allergic reactions, developed into a nationwide social media campaign that included signatures from 80,000 people and 121,000 letters sent to Congress demanding answers to this issue. Yet, despite the outrage from parents and families, patient advocacy groups have remained silent on the issue. The article asserts that this is most likely because organizations such as Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) and the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) have partnerships with Mylan, the company that is responsible for raising EpiPen prices (Parker-Pope 2).
I chose this article because I believe that the phenomenon of unfair EpiPen prices is indicative of the current state of the U.S. healthcare system today, in which many members of the upper and middle classes tend to view health care as a privilege rather than a right. The EpiPen is a life-saving drug, but because of its high prices, only the most privileged in the nation are able to afford it.
This Handbook seeks to apply the contemporary issue of raised EpiPen prices to the ideas of classical sociological theorists. By applying the ideas of classical theorists as stated in their writings, this handbook will examine how these theorists may have studied and explained the issue of raised EpiPen prices, and more generally, unfair drug prices.

Handbook Introduction: Topic and Purpose Statements
This handbook is an attempt to capture the core concepts and arguments from each theorist and to then apply those concepts to my chosen contemporary topic of millenials’ sexual habits. In doing so, I hope to explain both what is occurring and how it could be studied with regards to the methodological preferences of the theorists. I will not be hypothesizing as to how the theorists would react if they were alive today, but rather will be applying the concepts as they were written hundreds of years ago to my contemporary topic.
The data source I will be using is Tara Bahrampour?s article published on August 2, 2016 in the Washington Post titled ??There isn?t really anything magical about it?: Why more millennial are avoiding sex?. Tara Bahrampour is a staff writer for the Washington Post who writes about aging and generations. Her piece came in response to a study she cites in her piece by the Archives of Sexual Behavior which found those born in the 1990s more than twice as likely to be sexually inactive in their early twenties as previous generations (Bahrampour).
My interest in millennial sexual habits stems from my interest in the evolution of gender. I am interested in how the norms and expectations regarding sex have changed as gender has. The article provides multiple opinions as to why the change in sexual activity may have occurred, and I believe it would be helpful to use classical sociological concepts to explain the occurrence of increased sexual inactivity and the opinions on it provided in the article, ultimately furthering understanding of the theorists, their concepts, and my contemporary topic.

Classical Sociological Theory Handbook Introduction ? SAMPLE #4

This handbook serves as a reference regarding the key components of the theories and theorists studied in Classical Sociological Theory. Throughout this assignment, I intend to build a permanent record of what we learn in this class and discover ways in which classical theory relates to an issue of today?s times. Towards the fulfillment of the latter goal, I seek to uncover ways in which theory can be used to explain and study a given situation.
As stated, included in this handbook is an application of important sociological elements to a contemporary issue. The topic I have chosen to focus on is ?Millennials,? and the specific issue is the changing relationship this generation has with home ownership. The featured source of my analysis is Catherine Rampell?s August 22, 2016 Washington Post article ?Millenials aren?t buying homes. Good for them.? The article can be accessed through the following link: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/millennials-arent-buying-homes–good-for-them/2016/08/22/818793be-68a4-11e6-ba32-5a4bf5aad4fa_story.html?utm_term=.6b1298cede91.
I chose this topic and article because of how relevant it is to myself currently. First off, I am a ?Millennial,? defined as a member of the generation born roughly between the years of 1980 and 2004. Added to that, I am a senior in college, facing an approaching graduation date, and thus the life decision surrounding my future living arrangements is not far off. This means that I fit precisely in the category of people that Catherine Rampell, the author and Washington Post opinion columnist, is referring to in this article. Rampell argues that Millenials are less likely than any group before to be the owners of a house, and that while the reasons for this can be attributed to various factors ? communitarian values, inability to afford housing, later marrying ages, etc. ? she contends that this trend is actually good. By living at home, Millenials can not only better save up to one day move out, but they also avoid being tied down to any one particular location before they are settled into a job that satisfies both their career field and monetary interests. In the end, it can be synthesized from Rampell?s findings that as economic circumstances change, a shift in generational values follows suit.
The remainder of this handbook will adhere to the following format: (1) a comparison of the theories of Karl Marx and Jane Addams, (2) a comparison of the theories of Emile Durkheim and max Weber, (3) a comparison of two additional theorists. In each of these entries, I will give a brief overview of each theorists? life and background, identify and discuss their major works and key concepts, summarize the main points of their theories, highlight foundational questions that should be asked when examining a situation from each theorists? perspective, and discuss how a sociologist would apply various theories to the contemporary issue at hand.
