Frustration and aggression by John Dollard( Book )

12 editions published between 1939 and 1957 in English and Undetermined and held by 949 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the preparation of this book two aspects of the work of the Institute of Human Relations are illustrated. The first is that of cooperative research. The second aspect which this book illustrates is that of following a procedure of inquiry which is well known but seldom used in the social sciences. The problem of aggressive behavior is here advanced one step along this road which all social inquiry that aspires to become truly scientific must eventually follow. This step has consisted partly in a more systematic formulation and further elaboration of the Frustration-Aggression hypothesis which had already been stated by Freud and others, and partly in bringing together a larger body of relevant illustrative material. It is therefore in the nature of a second approximation looking toward a scientific theory of aggressive behavior. It is published in its present tentative form in the hope that it will stimulate further inquiry not only at the Institute but elsewhere. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)

Sun Chief : the autobiography of a Hopi Indian by Don C Talayesva( Book )

11 editions published between 1942 and 1972 in English and held by 758 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Don C. Talayesva of Oraibi, Arizona, the Sun Chief, was an individual caught between two cultures. He was born, and reared until he was ten, as a Hopi Indian, and then trained until twenty to be an American citizen. Although torn between two worlds, he returned to Hopiland, renounced Christianity, entered into tribal adulthood, joined secret socities, and worshiped the rain gods in elaborate rituals and dances. For Leo Simmons, a white man who was adopted as a clan brother, he finally wrote the story of his life in all its extraordinary detail. Dr. Simmons prepared this story for publication and has added a valuable introduction, supplemented and brought up to date by Robert V. Hine. -- from back cover

Criteria for the life history, with analyses of six notable documents by John Dollard( Book )

16 editions published between 1935 and 2009 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The element for which we are perennially seeking in the social sciences is a significant concept of the person to set off against our valuable formal descriptions of social life. This lack has served as an irritant leading to the elaboration of many schemes of social psychology and of much speculative thought about the individual. A more realistic effort emerging in many social science branches at about the same time has been the use of the life-history document as a method of filling the gap. In recent years increasing attention has been paid to life-history methods and many claimants for the attention of the scientific public have come forward. The value of the attempts so far has been to center attention on the life of the individual as an event worth the attention of social scientists; many useful though partial views have been developed. Despite the effort expended so far, the life history remains a much suspected tool of research and no comfortable certainty exists as to what an adequate life history document will eventually look like. This does not end the problem because in a number of fields the scientific worker is brought up against the necessity of making some kind of sense of material on the individual life. The life history is in reality a common task of a considerable number of fields. At the present time it plays a role in the teaching and research of sociology, psychology and psychiatry. By no means least of all, the social worker is concerned with the technique of taking and analyzing life-history materials, for she has pressed upon her every day the empirical necessities which make good judgment imperative. It is hoped that the criteria will be useful to all of these groups of workers. This book is intended to reduce confusion in the life-history field and to offer a blend structure of principles from the fields of cultural studies and clinical psychology. No innovations are attempted except those involved in re-thinking the problem of the life history from both of these standpoints. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2005 APA, all rights reserved)
The craving for superiority by Raymond Dodge( Book )

10 editions published in 1931 in English and held by 251 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book represents an approach to a scientific doctrine of the craving for superiority expressing a synthesis of two points of view, one psychological and the other psychopathological with their respective traditions and aims. We hope that it may act as a stimulus, not only for a better understanding of an important group of mental phenomena, but also for a more comprehensive and precise description of these phenomena, and for sounder practical systems which take them into account. Especially should it operate as a corrective in both fields for hasty and ill-considered generalizations. We do not intend to suggest a panacea for the amelioration of all abnormal personalities and we wish to avoid an oversimplification of the mental and bodily conditions of the psychopath. We are of the opinion, however, that the craving for superiority and the feeling of superiority are important and almost universal factors in human psychology and are worth studying as such. Furthermore, we believe that the cooperative approach which is represented in this study is one method among others which may help in the difficult task of understanding human nature"--Preface.
