Ideologies, Goals, and Values


"The directive and regulative systems of society operate through ideologies, values, and goals. Gross goes into considerable detail discussing the nature of values and goals, the structure of ideologies, and differences and similarities between these elements. In this extremely readable work, Gross views functioning human society in terms of three integrating systems: directing, regulating, and sustaining. These systems all function to achieve fundamental unification. The author uses many charts and graphs. There is a bibliography and an adequate index; documentation is extensive.... Upper-division undergraduate, graduate, and sophisticated general readership." - Choice
