Social control; a survey of the foundations of order by Edward Alsworth Ross( Book )

Social Control falls within social psychology, which is the branch of knowledge that deals with the psychic interplay between man and his environment. In Ross' terms, one of these branches, social ascendancy, deals with the domination of society over the individual. Another, individual ascendancy, embraces such topics as invention, leadership, the role of great men, and deals with the domination of the individual over society. Social ascendancy is divided into social influence - mob mind, fashion, convention, custom, public opinion, and the like - and social control. The former is occupied with social domination that is without intention or purpose. The latter is concerned with social domination that is intended and that fulfills a function in the life of society. At the start of the twentieth century this work played an important role in the origination of social psychology as a distinct field. Ross sought to determine how far the order we see about us is due to influences that reach men and women without social intervention. Investigation shows that the personality freely unfolds under conditions of healthy fellowship and may arrive at goodness on its own, and that order is explained partly by this streak in human nature and partly by the influence of social surroundings. Ross' book separates the individual's contribution to social order from that of society, and, brings to light everything that is considered in the social contribution of the individual. This classic volume is an important contribution to the history of ideas

"It requires some hardihood to put forth this, the pioneer treatise, in any language, professing to deal systematically with the subject of social psychology. In spite of infinite pains and thirteen years of experience in university teaching of the subject, I feel sure this book is strewn with errors. The ground is new, and among the hundreds of interpretations, inferences, and generalizations I have ventured on, no doubt scores will turn out to be wrong. Of course I would strike them out if I knew which they are. I would hold back the book could I hope by longer scrutiny to detect them. But I have brought social psychology as far as I can unaided, and nothing is to be gained by delay. The time has come to hand over the results of my reflection to my fellow-workers, in the hope of provoking discussions which will part the wheat from the chaff and set it to producing an hundred fold"--Preface.
