Editorial Reviews

Review

Haskell provides a deeper understanding of the relationship between professional societies and authoritative knowledge and how this led to the rise of distinctive intellectual societies.

(Daniel W. Williams Public Administration Review)

Review

A number of helpful works have been written about the early history of the social sciences in the United States... but none has contributed more than Haskell's book... to our effort to understand the origins, the sustaining conditions, and the early consequences of professional social science in America.

(David A. Hollinger American Historical Review)

A venturesome reassessment of the intellectual 'revolution' that took place around the end of the nineteenth century and laid the foundations of modern social thought... A major contribution to the intellectual history of the late nineteenth century.

(John Higham, The Johns Hopkins University)

A very valuable book, not only for the gap it fills in the study of the emergence and professionalization of the social science disciplines, but also for its interpretation of the origins and distinguishing features of modern social thought... This book will command the attention and respect of scholars for a very long time.

(Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book on the origins of American social science. This is a serious book about the quiet radicals who set spawned American academic disciplines. This book is well worth your time. Before there was the American Historical Association or the American Economic Association: there was the American Social Science Association- the subject of this book.
