The Origins of American Social Science

Focusing on the disciplines of economics, sociology, political science, and history, this book examines how American social science came to model itself on natural science and liberal politics. Professor Ross argues that American social science receives its distinctive stamp from the ideology of American exceptionalism, the idea that America occupies an exceptional place in history, based on her republican government and wide economic opportunity. Professor Ross shows how each of the social science disciplines, while developing their inherited intellectual traditions, responded to change in historical consciousness, political needs, professional structures, and the conceptions of science available to them. This is a comprehensive book, which looks broadly at American social science in its historical context and to demonstrate the central importance of the national ideology of American exceptionalism to the development of the social sciences and to American social thought generally.

Michael White is a fascinating historical account of the development of California's San Gabriel Valley based on the life of Michael White, who was born in England in 1801 and at the age of 13 rode the high seas to become one of Southern California's founding pioneers. Factual accounts of his colorful life dramatically illustrate life surrounding the San Gabriel Mission under Spanish rule and early sea trading in the pacific region in the 1820s. After several years at sea, White adopts California as his home in 1828, becomes a Mexican citizen, and marries into a highly regarded mission family. Following the secularization and breakup of the mission lands in the 1830s, White becomes a respect...

Modernist impulses in the human sciences, 1870-1930

Modernism is currently at the center of debate in intellectual history and throughout the humanities, a debate generated in part by the advent of postmodernism. While much has been written about the modernist movement in the arts at the turn of the century, this is the first book since H. Stuart Hughes's Consciousness and Society to examine modernism in the human sciences and adjacent areas of philosophy and natural science. It is also the first book to explore that history in light of the contemporary debate.

The Leader and the Crowd

Daria Frezza covers six tumultuous decades of transatlantic history to examine how European theories of mass politics and crowd psychology influenced American social scientists' perception of crowds, mobs, democratic "people," and its leadership. In the last decades of the nineteenth century, the development of an urban-industrial mass society and the disordered influx of millions of immigrants required a redefinition of these important categories in American public discourse. Frezza shows how in the Atlantic crossing of ideas American social scientists reelaborated the European theories of crowd psychology and the racial theories then in fashion. Theorists made a sharp distinction between t...

Jenkins Farms is a fascinating factual account of the almost forgotten early days of Sutter County, California when wheat farming, which dominated the landscape in the late 1800s, transitioned to small family-run fruit farms with orchards and dryyards in the early 1900s. Through the chronicles of the Jenkins farm, the reader experiences the pioneering spirit of the early farmers of California and the breath of farm activities undertaken to survive until the early orchards could come into bearing. Raising dairy cows, hogs and chickens, processing sorghum cane into molasses, farming oats, barley, beans and alfalfa are relived by the reader as the horse and buggy technology gives way to the fir...
