Advances in Sociology Research by Jared A. JaworskiThe authors of this book discuss the latest advances in sociology research. Chapter One focuses on understanding the current situation and factors affecting life quality of workers at Export Processing Zone/Industrial Parks (EPZ/IPs) in HCMC. Chapter Two reviews the international legal standards on the protection of child victims of crime and consider how these standards are implemented in Vietnam. Chapter Three utilizes county level white and African-American arrest and incarceration data from Iowa and Missouri to explore the effects of racial threat and political orientation on the likelihood of arrest and imprisonment. Chapter Four focuses on one seldom-discussed area of historical and contemporary eugenic control, the development of financial or social incentives or disincentives to foster eugenic aims, and discusses its social justice implications. Chapter Five explores the context and the challenges of the urban refugees and asylum seekers that live in the main urban centres of Thailand, coming from more than 40 countries of Asia and Africa looking for a safer life. Chapter Six examines refugees apprehensions which result in their negligence of given solutions, using Ghana as a case study. Chapter Seven reviews controversies and limits of a current debate on the centrality of work category in social theory and contemporary capitalism. Chapter Eight is about Pastor Nevers Mumba of Zambia, who is arguably an unsung hero of a Pentecostal politician with a quasi political theology that gives him the drive and the scope for his involvement in active and partisan politics.
