Frustration and aggression by John Dollard( Book )
17 editions published between 1939 and 1967 in English and held by 948 libraries worldwide
In the preparation of this book two aspects of the work of the Institute of Human Relations are illustrated. The first is that of cooperative research. The second aspect which this book illustrates is that of following a procedure of inquiry which is well known but seldom used in the social sciences. The problem of aggressive behavior is here advanced one step along this road which all social inquiry that aspires to become truly scientific must eventually follow. This step has consisted partly in a more systematic formulation and further elaboration of the Frustration-Aggression hypothesis which had already been stated by Freud and others, and partly in bringing together a larger body of relevant illustrative material. It is therefore in the nature of a second approximation looking toward a scientific theory of aggressive behavior. It is published in its present tentative form in the hope that it will stimulate further inquiry not only at the Institute but elsewhere. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2004 APA, all rights reserved)

The craving for superiority by Raymond Dodge( Book )
10 editions published in 1931 in English and held by 250 libraries worldwide
"This book represents an approach to a scientific doctrine of the craving for superiority expressing a synthesis of two points of view, one psychological and the other psychopathological with their respective traditions and aims. We hope that it may act as a stimulus, not only for a better understanding of an important group of mental phenomena, but also for a more comprehensive and precise description of these phenomena, and for sounder practical systems which take them into account. Especially should it operate as a corrective in both fields for hasty and ill-considered generalizations. We do not intend to suggest a panacea for the amelioration of all abnormal personalities and we wish to avoid an oversimplification of the mental and bodily conditions of the psychopath. We are of the opinion, however, that the craving for superiority and the feeling of superiority are important and almost universal factors in human psychology and are worth studying as such. Furthermore, we believe that the cooperative approach which is represented in this study is one method among others which may help in the difficult task of understanding human nature"--Preface.
