Human relations in a changing world; observations on the use of the social sciences by Alexander H Leighton( Book )
8 editions published between 1949 and 2012 in English and held by 446 libraries worldwide
"The foundation of this book is a particular experience in applying some of the principles and methods of social science, especially cultural anthropology, sociology and psychiatry, to the wartime analysis of Japanese morale. The work was done for policy makers in the Government who needed to know about the nature of Japanese morale, its strength, what changes were occurring and what, if anything, could be achieved by psychological warfare. After victory it became possible to re-examine many of the conclusions with the benefit of later information; early diagnoses were compared with how things did, in fact, turn out. Now, due to the lifting of security restrictions, it is possible to report the result. The aim is to present one set of experiences and some suggestions arising from them in the hope that they are pertinent to the employment of social science in a world situation where it is badly needed. In short, there is here an orientation in the light of which a particular account is given and some general conclusions drawn. The presentation is planned in that order: Part I, The Setting, concerns the point of view that permeates the book; Part II, A Case History in Applied Social Science, tells the story of a wartime analysis of Japanese morale; Part III, The Use of Applied Social Science, deals with the implications for the present and future"--Foreword.

Times of sorrow & hope : documenting everyday life in Pennsylvania during the Depression and World War II : a photographic record ( Book )
1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 306 libraries worldwide
"Between 1935 and 1946 a group of photographers working for the federal government fanned out across the country to record American life in pictures. Among them were some of the great documentary photographers in American history—including Marjory Collins, Jack Delano, Sheldon Dick, Walker Evans, Dorothea Lange, Ben Shahn, and Marion Post Wolcott. This massive photographic project, carried out primarily under the auspices of the Farm Security Administration (FSA) and the Office of War Information (OWI) and later preserved at the Library of Congress, was unrivaled in scope: no comparable attempt to document life in this country has ever been made. Times of Sorrow and Hope is devoted to the Pennsylvania photographs in the FSA-OWI collection. It is both a book and an online catalog. The Times of Sorrow and Hope book features 150 selected images from the approximately 6,000 Pennsylvania photographs, and they cover themes ranging from coal mining, steelworkers, and women in wartime industries to cities and small towns, farm life, family life, and life among the Amish and Mennonites. The book also includes an essay introducing the FSA-OWI project, an introduction to the catalog of the entire collection of Pennsylvania photographs, and a historical essay on Pennsylvania during the Great Depression and World War II"--Publisher's website
