The concept of Jacksonian democracy; New York as a test case by Lee Benson( Book )

59 editions published between 1961 and 2015 in English and held by 2,533 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jacksonian Democracy has become almost a commonplace in American history. But in this penetrating analysis of one state-its voting cycles, party makeup, and social, ethnic, and religious patterns-Lee Benson shows that the concept bears little or no relation to New York history during the Jacksonian period. New York voters between 1816 and 1844 did not follow the traditional distinctions between Whigs and Democrats. Ethnic and religious ties were stronger social forces than income, occupation, and environment. Mr. Benson's examination suggests a new theory of American voting behavior and a re

Knowledge for social change : Bacon, Dewey, and the revolutionary transformation of research universities in the twenty-first century by Lee Benson( )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Employing history, social theory, and a detailed contemporary case study, Knowledge for Social Change argues for fundamentally reshaping research universities to function as democratic, civic, and community-engaged institutions dedicated to advancing learning and knowledge for social change. The authors focus on significant contributions to learning made by Francis Bacon, Benjamin Franklin, Seth Low, Jane Addams, William Rainey Harper, and John Dewey--as well as their own work at Penn's Netter Center for Community Partnerships--to help create and sustain democratically-engaged colleges and universities for the public good. Knowledge for Social Change highlights university-assisted community schools to effect a thoroughgoing change of research universities that will contribute to more democratic schools, communities, and societies. The authors also call on democratic-minded academics to create and sustain a global movement dedicated to advancing learning for the "relief of man's estate"--An iconic phrase by Francis Bacon that emphasized the continued betterment of the human condition--and to realize Dewey's vision of an organic "Great Community" composed of participatory, democratic, collaborative, and interdependent societies"--
