Abstract:

"This book is the outcome of three years' investigation which yielded a technique that would seem to have application to widely varying material not only in the several fields of government but in the field of social relations generally. The objective of the technique is the identification of significantly cohering blocs of individuals within any given larger group and the further identification and analysis of the clusters of significantly associated characteristics which constitute the cohesion of discovered blocs. Unlike the procedure of correlation, the reported technique does not measure the degree of association between a number of quantitative series; but it does detect significant association of attributes and identifies the individuals in whom ascertained degrees of significant association exist. Such an objective has particular value for many research tasks. Somewhat like correlation, however, the technique directs the marshaling of data into a series of diagrams and tables constructed to evidence whatever association exists and provides a number of indexes for the summarization of the association so portrayed. The substantive results of the probe of the voting record of the 1927 session of the "non-partisan" Minnesota senate are presented for purposes of illustration and because that probe was the first of the series of inquiries which produced the technique. Other probes evolved an accretion of technique which finally transcended treatment of votes and found application to formidable masses of data, measured or unmeasured, involved in a variety of problems more important than the detection of mere legislative blocs. As a result of such probing a canvass is presented of the various uses and the fields of research which the evolved technique might be expected to serve. The volume concludes with a series of tentative constructive suggestions as to the data and methodology of political science. These suggestions, with illustrations, particularly in the field of public opinion and behavior in governance, serve to give the reported technique its most vital setting. It is the hope of the writer that this workway as now developed may prove to be of some value in subsequent investigations. Improvements upon it are gladly welcomed. Even replacement by technique that would serve much better is a very desirable result of report on present progress. And particularly, it is hoped that this procedure, or a better, may be put to actual use in the service of a program of inquiry which would involve increasing objectivity and precision"--Preface.
