About the Author:

Sociologist and educator Helen Merrell Lynd (1896-1982) was a coauthor of the classic sociological study "Middletown: A Study in Contemporary American Culture". With her husband, Robert S. Lynd, she studied the beliefs and practices of the residents of a small industrial town to provide a unique portrait of American life in the 1920s. They returned to the town during the Great Depression of the 1930s to observe changes in the community, a study which was published as "Middletown in Transition: A Study in Cultural Conflicts".

Helen Merrell Lynd, with her husband, Robert S. Lynd, coauthored the classic sociological work Middletown: A Study in Contemporary American Culture. A study of the lives of the citizens of an average American town in the 1920s, the book became a best-seller and a standard text for sociology students. The Lynds followed up on Middletown residents in the 1930s, producing the volume Middletown in Transition: A Study in Cultural Conflicts. In addition to these collaborative works with her husband, Lynd also had a successful independent career in academia. A longtime member of the staff of Sarah Lawrence College, she wrote a number of books on education, history, philosophy, and sociology.

Book Description Cengage Learning EMEA, United Kingdom, 1982. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.The two classic studies of Middletown were pioneering works that examined the daily life of a typical small American city -- in actuality, Muncie, Indiana -- using the approach of social anthropology. The initial volume was published in the mid-1920s, when H. L. Mencken called it one of the richest and most valuable documents ever concocted by American sociologists. The sequel, Middletown in Transition, returned to the same community in 1935, after six years of the Depression. Of enduring interest to students of sociology, these historic studies have also inspired a six-part television series, under the title Middletown. Bookseller Inventory # APC9780156595513
