Title: The rhythm of modernization : how values change over time / By Raül Tormos.

Description: Leiden ; Boston : Brill, 2020. | Series: International studies in sociology and social anthropology, 0074-8684 ; Volume 132 | Includes bibliographical references and index. | Summary: “In this chapter I review the three main theories of values, the still limited literature on value change, and the contributions of socialization studies to understanding the dynamics of sociopolitical orientations. I devote special attention to Inglehart’s general theory of modernization upon which I base my subsequent empirical analysis. I reflect on what values are and the main approaches to the study of values, those of Rokeach, Schwartz, and Inglehart”– Provided by publisher.
