Quest for American Sociology: Robert E.Park and the Chicago School by Fred Matthews
English | Aug. 1977 | ISBN: 0773502432 | 298 Pages | PDF | 23.06 MB


Robert E. Park was a key figure in the development of the 'Chicago school' which played a dominant role in the evolution of American sociology in the inter-war years. This biographical study deals in depth with Park's life before his appointment to the University of Chicago in 1913, and investigates the personal and intellectual influences that formed the independent nature and well-stocked mind he brought to the academic world. A decade of work as a newspaper reporter and several years spent at Tuskegee as writer and publicist for Booker T. Washington helped shape what were to become the main foci of his sociological interests: the modern city and the interaction of its varied races and cultures.
