The nature of prejudice by Gordon W Allport ( Book )
127 editions published between 1954 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 4,130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With profound insight into the complexities of the human experience, Harvard psychologist Gordon Allport organized a mass of research to produce a landmark study on the roots and nature of prejudice. First published in 1954, The Nature of Prejudice remains the standard work on discrimination. Now this classic study is offered in a special unabridged edition with a new introduction by Kenneth Clark of Columbia University and a new preface by Thomas Pettigrew of Harvard University. Allport's comprehensive and penetrating work examines all aspects of this age-old problem: its roots in individual and social psychology, its varieties of expression, its impact on the individuals and communities. He explores all kinds of prejudice-racial, religious, ethnic, economic and sexual-and offers suggestions for reducing the devastating effects of discrimination.The additional material by Clark and Pettigrew updates the social-psychological research in prejudice and attests to the enduring values of Allport's original theories and insights. -- Publisher

The use of personal documents in psychological science. Prepared for the Committee on Appraisal of Research by Gordon W Allport ( Book )
35 editions published between 1942 and 2005 in English and Japanese and held by 800 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The present volume records one of a series of steps taken or planned by the Committee on Appraisal of Research of the Social Science Research Council in carrying out its mandate to appraise research in discharging "the Council's responsibility for the improvement of the quality of research in the social sciences." Furthermore, the committee, its mandate later having received a broader construction, is carrying on, as a part of its appraisal of the use of personal documents, what might be called experiments in method. It has been arranged that the same selected collection of personal documents be made the basis for scientific conclusions by two or more investigators working separately and independently. The committee believes Dr. Allport's monograph to be a penetrating and significant review of its subject. Indeed the work does more than justify its title, for the reader will find an examination of methodological questions that stand large not only in psychology but in all the social sciences"--Foreword

Studies in expressive movement by Gordon W Allport ( Book )
36 editions published between 1933 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 652 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Investigations of personality may be focused upon any one of three different levels of phenomena. The first is the level of traits, interests, attitudes, or sentiments considered as composing an "inner" personality; the second is the level of behavior and expression; the third is the level of impression, the perception and interpretation of behavior by another. Since a discovery on one of these levels establishes a presumption that the phenomenon in question has some counterpart on the other levels, a problem which is elusive on one plane may often be more expediently attacked on another. This is the motive and the plan behind the present study. Instead of approaching the difficult problem of consistency or organization in personality through a study of "inner" dispositions--which, of course, can only be known indirectly through tests and scales, --we have chosen to refer the problem to the level of expressive movement and there to examine it in a more direct fashion. Besides being expedient, this policy of referring knotty problems of personality to the field of expression has considerable theoretical justification. Unless we accept the epistemology of intuitionism, we are forced to regard our judgments of personality as inferential constructs based upon our sensory perception of expression; and to assume that it is only through our perceptions of the physical bodies, speech, or gesture of our associates that we derive any knowledge of their natures. From this point of view the direct study of expression is the most natural possible approach to the study of personality. Expressive movement in this monograph refers to those aspects of movement which are distinctive enough to differentiate one individual from another. The present study goes beyond the tradition of the psychology of individual differences; it treats the question of the agreement among individual differences, with special reference to the motor field. The discovery of well-integrated and consistent expression in the motor field would establish a presumption that similar patterning is to be expected in all aspects of personality, but it is for the future to show the exact relation of expressive movement to "inner" traits and to impression"--Introduction.

Youth's outlook on the future; a cross-national study by James M Gillespie ( Book )
12 editions published between 1955 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This study seeks at least partial answers to three questions: 1. How does youth in various countries view the future? An outlook on the future is admittedly a many-faceted affair, involving as it does political, economic, and social expectations as well as personal hopes and aspirations. We are interested in all these facets, but our chief interest is in the way the present dark and uncertain world situation affects youths' attitudes toward their personal lives and future careers. 2. Do young people in different countries view their futures in essentially the same way? If we find a uniformity of peaceful ideals and intentions we may have reason to hope for a better world. If, however, we find little uniformity, we must try to delineate the chief national differences. They may be so striking that we shall be forced to affirm the existence of diverse national characters and perhaps abandon the hope that advances in communication and growing similarity in educational practices are creating a single world community. 3. Is international social research at the present time practicable and beneficial? If the investigation here reported proves to be rewarding we may hope that additional problems of worldwide importance may soon receive concerted study and constructive analysis by social scientists in many lands. The movement toward international social research is, as we have said, already under way. But each new attempt has something to teach us concerning the advantages and limitations of such investigations."
