"We believe that it is possible to meet the requirements of scientific validity and conceptual adequacy within the bounds of the experimental tradition. The development of experimental work in social psychology has progressed to a stage wherein a fairly complete treatment of the entire subject matter can now be given in the light of experimentally derived knowledge. In other words, where actual experiments remain yet to be performed, the problems can even now be envisaged in terms of experimentally established facts. Specifically, the plan of organization to be followed in this book attempts an adequate, vital approach by introducing materials and problems from the point of view of different participants in the social scene. The social world as it appears to the man on the street, social phenomena as seen through the eyes of the clinician or psychiatrist, and the social drama as viewed by the social engineer or planner all provide points of departure for our study. A unity in these descriptions derives from a continuing emphasis upon naturalistic and scientific interpretation. A whole section (Part II), moreover, is devoted to a detailed analysis of the mechanisms and mainsprings of action, the motives of men, and the processes of social interaction as revealed in experimental findings. Part I is descriptive and sociological, Part II is analytical and experimental, Part III is genetic and developmental, Part IV historical and dialectical. It is hoped that the instructor will find this treatment a broad exposition which includes many phases of the behavior of the individual as he encounters the social world of his fellows. The gearing of this account to the problems of everyday life increases its vitality to the student"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved)

Motivation and aspiration in the Negro college by Patricia Gurin( Book )

7 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 109 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The factors which influence career choices and aspirations of students attending selected negro colleges in the south were studied. Of major concern were the ways which the students' social and family backgrounds, motivational characteristics, involvements in civil rights, and educational experiences encourage or constrain alternatives in making choices about their futures. The institutions were selected for providing wide diversities in public-private sponsorship, academic status, and amount of constraint on civil rights activities. Questionnaires were administered to 4,000 students at 10 institutions. In addition, interviews were conducted with 600 students to obtain more intensive information. Data collected were on specific measures of occupational aspiration, class background, family influence, motivation, and institutional characteristics. The results indicated that (1) elementary and secondary teaching careers were the predominant professional choice, (2) high achievement orientation and sense of personal control were positively related to aspirations for jobs of prestige, (3) realistic aspirants (ability matched equally with level of performance) were more likely than under- or over-aspirants to attribute the failure of other negroes to problems of racial discrimination, and (4) overall differences existed among the 10 schools in degrees of student aspiration. Implications were presented for education, motivational dynamics (the role of expectancies and value-motive factors), personal control development, educational programs, success feedback, programed materials, grades and honors distribution, and school, teacher, and student roles.

Morale and motivation in industry: [paper] presented at the conference on trends in industrial psychology at the University of Pittsburgh by Daniel Katz( )

6 editions published in 1949 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than three centuries, slave ships carried millions of people from the coasts of Africa to the New World. Here, award-winning historian Rediker creates a detailed history of these vessels and the human drama acted out on their rolling decks. Rediker restores the slave ship to its rightful place alongside the plantation as a formative institution of slavery, as a place where a profound and still haunting history of race, class, and modern capitalism was made.--From publisher description
Detroit Area Study, 1957: Party Leader and Political Behavior and Intra-Class Correlation of Attitudes in Detroit by Daniel Katz( )

3 editions published in 1984 in 3 languages and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study of 596 adults in Wayne County, Detroit, provides information on their political attitudes and behavior in the period 1956 and 1957. The collection was a combination of two separate studies: PARTY LEADERSHIP AND POLITICAL BEHAVIOR by Daniel Katz and Samuel Eldersveld, and INTRA-CLASS CORRELATION OF ATTITUDES IN DETROIT by Leslie Kish. Items focused on perceptions, attitudes, and behavior of the adult public toward party structures and organizations at the county, district, and precinct levels. In order to assess the sources of influence on the respondents' political attitudes and behavior, they were asked about the mass media they depended on most heavily for political information, as well as the frequency with which politics was discussed in meetings of their families, friends, neighbors, and other groups to which they belonged. Other questions elicited information about the respondents' knowledge of and involvement in local party politics and their knowledge of precinct workers and their state party chairman. Also explored were respondents' feelings about the importance of voting, their general attitudes toward politics and political figures such as Stevenson and Eisenhower, their perception of the differences between the major parties on various issues, and their opinions on several controversial issues such as a national health care, school integration, ending the military draft, and monetary aid to countries that were not anti-communist. Additional items covered the use of telephones in respondents' homes, their living experiences before coming to Detroit, their handling of change of residences since coming to Detroit, and their feelings about their neighborhood. Demographic variables specify age, sex, race, education, place of birth, marital status, number of children, length of time at present residence, religion, political ... Cf.:
