9780521646499: A History of Sociological Research Methods in America, 1920-1960 (Ideas in Context)

This is the first book on the general history of U.S. sociological research methods. It provides systematic archival, documentary and interview data that question conventional views, showing that the extensive work done on sociological theory gives only a partial picture of the history of sociology. Research practice is affected by many other factors. This detailed study develops our understanding both of the history of social thought, and the settings in which social research is produced, raising wider issues of method in the history of ideas.

This is the first book on the general history of US sociological research methods. It provides systematic archival, documentary and interview data which question many conventional views, and it raises wider issues of method in the history of ideas. special attention is paid to commonly neglected themes: foundations other than Rockefeller ones, 'case-study' method and the Lundberg circle.
