The American college; a psychological and social interpretation of the higher learning by Nevitt Sanford( Book )

21 editions published between 1962 and 1967 in English and held by 1,237 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fundamentally, education should look to the future. It should prepare its students to live in a world of new possibilities and of new dangers. To do so, it must itself be able to change and develop rationally. A central thesis of this stimulating book is that scientific method, more than any other procedure known to man, provides the basis for intelligent change: for change based on systematic knowledge rather than on improvisation, hunch, or dogma. This rich, comprehensive volume charts the way into relatively unexplored territory. The chart is sufficiently detailed to reveal the diverse, interesting terrain as well as the rich ore that has already been discovered in this area by systematic research. It contains more information about and more insightful discussion of the varied aspects of the American college than has been available hitherto. It is a splendid beginning; it highlights what needs to be done as well as what has been done"--Foreword. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)

Theory and research on small groups by R. Scott Tindale( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2002 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research on small groups played an important role in the early formulation of social psychology. By the 1970s, however, the field had lost the interest of most social psychologists. Theory and Research on Small Groups reintegrates that work back into the mainstream of social psychology. The more recent `issues-oriented' approach has not only resulted in many interesting findings-it has also applied basic social psychological theory in new ways and, moreover, led to new theoretical developments that deserve more attention. This volume, which features the work of esteemed researchers from around the world, is a bountiful resource worthy of notice by all social psychologists
Human nature and enduring peace by Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues( Book )

12 editions published in 1945 in English and Undetermined and held by 424 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thoughtful men and women are demanding that use be made of every human resource in the passionate endeavor to prevent the recurrence of war. Though it is generally recognized that human nature--in particular the human nature which develops under modern industrial societies--needs to be as fully understood as possible if the control of war is to prove feasible, there have been, up to the present, only the most fragmentary efforts towards mobilizing our psychological information in reference to this problem. No single approach will ever prove adequate. Neither the historian, the economist, the sociologist, the political scientist, the psychiatrist, nor the psychologist has all the answers. The need is so great that it is felt there is a rightful place for a book stressing the many facets of the problem of human nature as it relates to war. The contributions represent many viewpoints, but all are founded upon genuine expertness and competence with reference to the specific problem treated"--Preface
