"In a volume designed to introduce readers to a field of inquiry it would be desirable to adhere to the accepted canons of science and to limit coverage to theorems that are well established. To do this in social psychology, however, would leave very little to discuss. Since propositions are difficult to test unless they are formulated explicitly, however, many generalizations have been stated in a form more definite than is warranted by the evidence. Available data have been introduced wherever relevant, but all too often the evidence is inconclusive. Many of the studies cited are only illustrative, even when they are experimental in design. Some of them are technically defective, but they constitute the best materials on hand. It cannot be emphasized too strongly, therefore, that the orientation presented in this book is highly tentative. There has been some controversy among social psychologists over the proper training of future specialists in the field. Some advocate training in mathematics and physics; others insist upon the study of biology; still others call for exposure to the humanities. Whatever else social psychologists must know, it appears obvious that the effective study of human behavior requires some familiarity with the intimate details of the lives of a variety of people. But many students have been so well protected that they know little of what goes on outside of middle class communities. One economical way of overcoming this handicap is the extensive reading of first person documents--autobiographies, letters, diaries, and the clinical records of psychiatrists. A short list of published documents, most of them readily available in college libraries, has been appended for this purpose. The items vary considerably in literary merit, but each provides a valuable record of human experience and throws light on at least one of the central problems taken up in the text"--Preface.

The derelicts of Company K : a sociological study of demoralization by Tamotsu Shibutani( Book )

12 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Everywhere Company K went the men forged a record of discord and misbehavior-widespread absenteeism, insubordination, intramural violence and protests sometimes bordering on mutiny. This book describes just how Company K disintegrated. However bizarre the behavior of Company K may appear to an outsider, it becomes readily comprehensible once incidents are viewed through the eyes of the participants. This story emphasizes the way in which beliefs and sentiments-concerning the army, their leaders, and especially themselves developed
