Toward a social history of the American Civil War : exploratory essays by Maris A Vinovskis( Book )

11 editions published between 1990 and 1991 in English and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The American Civil War has been the subject of thousands of books and articles, but only a small fraction of this literature examines the impact of the war on society and on the lives of the participants. This volume of essays, which focuses on the North, is intended as an initial reconnaissance by social historians into the study of the Civil War. The first essay, 'Have Social Historians Lost the Civil War?' places the war in the broader context of other American wars by comparing casualty rates. The essay also examines rates of enlistment for the North and the South, and the significance of pensions for Union soldiers and their windows. Subsequent essays look at the support for the war in small towns; the influence of nineteenth-century values and culture on Union soldiers; the nature and role of large-scale relief efforts for soldiers in Philadelphia; and the impact of the war on the politics of Chicago. The final two essays discuss the continuing importance of the war for its survivors: one by looking at those who joined the major national organization of Union veterans; and the other by studying the impact of the Civil War on Union widows in three Northern towns. Taken together, the essays demonstrate the need for historians to rediscover the impact of the Civil War on nineteenth-century society

Education and social change in nineteenth-century Massachusetts by Carl F Kaestle( Book )

20 editions published between 1930 and 2009 in English and held by 534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focusing on Massachusetts as a case study, this research relates 19th century schooling patterns to social change. Indices of social change included schooling differences in rural and urban areas, industrial and economic development, school community relationship, and family life. The document contains 10 chapters; each chapter is based on both statistical and literary sources. Chapter I introduces the research, discusses the revisionist nature of recent educational history, and explains why Massachusetts was selected as a case study. Chapter ii characterizes common schooling and enrollment levels prior to 1840. Chapter iii examines school attendance trends from 1840-80. Chapter iv assesses rural urban schooling differences. Chapter v discusses the politics of educational reform in mid-nineteenth century Massachusetts. Chapter vi examines relationships among parents, students, and the schools. Chapter vii considers pressures which encouraged students to leave school and work in the factories. Chapters viii and ix present case studies of a typical rural school system (Boxford) and an urban school system (Lynn). The final chapter summarizes research findings. General conclusions are that educational development was strongly related to demographic and economic trends; organized differently in rural and urban areas; and responsible for constantly increasing roles in childrens' lives.

7 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Education, society, and economic opportunity : a historical perspective on persistent issues by Maris A Vinovskis( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 508 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Maris Vinovskis critically reviews and integrates recent work in educational history and provides new research on neglected topics. He discusses such issues as: the gradual shift from the family to the public schools in the responsibility for educating the young; the rise and fall of infant schools between 1840 and 1860; the crisis in the teaching of morality in the public schools of the mid-nineteenth century; early efforts to provide schooling for impoverished children; and the evolution of the belief that education improves individual economic and social mobility. He also studies school attendance and discovers that a much higher percentage of children may have attended public high schools in the nineteenth century than has been assumed, investigates when the practice of placing children in grades according to their age became widespread, and assesses whether different age groups in previous eras varied in their support for schooling - as they seem to be doing now

Social science and policy-making : a search for relevance in the twentieth century by David L Featherman( Book )

13 editions published in 2001 in English and Undetermined and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays examines how the social sciences in America were developed as a means of social reform and later, especially after World War II, as a tool in federal policymaking and policy analysis. It also uses arenas of policymaking, such as early childhood education and welfare and its reform, as case studies in which social research was used, in policy decisions or in setting and evaluating policy goals. The book is written to aid students of public policy to appreciate the complex relationship of information--principally, of social science research--to policymaking at the federal level. David L. Featherman is Professor of Sociology and Psychology, Director and Senior Research Scientist, Institute for Social Research, University of Michigan. Maris A. Vinovskis is Bentley Professor of History, Senior Research Scientist, Institute for Social Research, Faculty member, School of Public Policy, University of Michigan
