Method and meaning in polls and surveys by Howard Schuman( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and Polish and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Howard Schuman is one of the premier scholars of social surveys. His expertise concerns the way questions about attitudes and beliefs are worded and the effects questions have on the answers people give. However, Method and Meaning in Polls and Surveys is less about the substance of wording effects and more about approaches to interpreting the respondent's world, and how surveys can make that world understandable - though often in ways not anticipated by the researcher." "The book will be of interest to social scientists, to survey researchers in academia and polling, and to all those concerned with the profound influence of surveys in society."--Jacket
Black racial attitudes : trends and complexities by Howard Schuman( Book )

10 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The slogan "study the victimizers, not the victims," can too easily become an excuse for substituting the ideologies and preconceptions of white and black intellectuals for the often different reality revealed by empirical research. This monograph tries to present a modest but complex set of data gathered using attitude sample survey methods, and to do so within a relatively objective framework of analysis and reporting. The main final comparison samples were representative of Detroit black heads and wives of heads of house, ages 21-69 inclusive, at each of three points in time. The first set of data is drawn from interviews with 2,809 black respondents, ages 16-69, in Detroit and 14 other American cities. These interviews were carried out between January 6 and March 31 of 1968. a second independent survey of black attitudes was carried out in Detroit by the Detroit Area Study April 24-July 31 of 1968. It included six questions from the first study. Because the assassination of Martin Luther King occurred during the three weeks between the completion of the first study and the beginning of the second, a comparison of responses to the six repeated questions permits assessment of the immediate effect of the assassination on attitudes of the Detroit black adult population. The third survey, also a Detroit area study, was carried out in 1971, April 15-September 26. (Author/JM)

Generations and collective memory by Amy Corning( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When discussing large social trends or experiences, we tend to group people into generations. But what does it mean to be part of a generation, and what gives that group meaning and coherence? It's collective memory, say Amy Corning and Howard Schuman, and in Generations and Collective Memory, they draw on an impressive range of research to show how generations share memories of formative experiences, and how understanding the way those memories form and change can help us understand society and history. Their key finding-built on historical research and interviews in the United States and seven other countries (including China, Japan, Germany, Lithuania, Russia, Israel, and Ukraine)-is that our most powerful generational memories are of shared experiences in adolescence and early adulthood, like the 1963 Kennedy assassination for those born in the 1950s or the fall of the Berlin Wall for young people in 1989. But there are exceptions to that rule, and they're significant: Corning and Schuman find that epochal events in a country, like revolutions, override the expected effects of age, affecting citizens of all ages with a similar power and lasting intensity. The picture Corning and Schuman paint of collective memory and its formation is fascinating on its face, but it also offers intriguing new ways to think about the rise and fall of historical reputations and attitudes toward political issues. -- Provided by publisher
