Out of our past : the forces that shaped modern America by Carl N Degler( Book )

At odds : women and the family in America from the Revolution to the present by Carl N Degler( Book )

Neither Black nor white : slavery and race relations in Brazil and the United States by Carl N Degler( Book )

33 editions published between 1971 and 1986 in 3 languages and held by 1,800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Until this groundbreaking work, scholars were puzzled by the differing courses of slavery and race relations in the United States and Brazil. Brazil had never developed a system of rigid segregation, such as appeared in the United States, and blacks in Brazil were able to gain economically and retain far more of their African culture. Rejecting the theory of Giberto Freyre and Frank Tannenbaum -- that Brazilian slavery was more humane -- the author points to a combination of demographic, economic and cultural factors as the real reason for the differences

26 editions published between 1974 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In search of human nature : the decline and revival of Darwinism in American social thought by Carl N Degler( Book )

28 editions published between 1991 and 2007 in English and held by 1,511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Now, with In Search of Human Nature, Degler turns to perhaps his largest subject yet, a sweeping history of the impact of Darwinism (and biological research) on our understanding of human nature, providing a fascinating overview of the social sciences in the last one hundred years. What kind of animal is homo sapiens and how did we come to be this way? In this wide ranging history, Carl Degler traces our attempts over the last century to answer these questions. In doing so, he has produced a volume that will fascinate anyone curious about the nature of human beings. - Jacket flap

Women and economics : a study of the economic relation between men and women as a factor in social evolution by Charlotte Perkins Gilman( Book )

15 editions published between 1966 and 1992 in English and held by 655 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Charlotte Gilman became the leading intellectual in the women's movement in the United States during the first two decades of the twentieth century. 'The Nation' went so far as to pronounce Women and Economics 'the most significant utterance on the subject of women since Mill's Subjection of Woman'.... No one in her time focussed the arguments so sharply and stated them so lucidly and cogently as she did. Moreover, at a time when most feminists were talking about the ideal of equal rights as the primary justification for women's claims, Mrs. Gilman raised the more fundamental question of the nature and potentialities of the sexes. She challenged the Victorian assumption that men and women were so different that their social activites ought not and could not overlap....She anticipated modern commentators like Margaret Mead, Erich Fromm, and Erik Erikson who have also seen a link between sex and character....A new edition of Women and Economics is justified not only by the important place the book occupied in its own time and in the intellectual and social history of the United States, but also for what it says in lucid and challenging fashion about and to women today." -- Carl N. Degler
