Encyclopedia of Social HistoryeBook - 1994
A reference surveying the major concerns, findings, and terms of social history. The coverage includes major categories within social history (family, demographic transition, multiculturalism, industrialization, nationalism); major aspects of life for which social history has provided a crucial perspective (adolescence, child abuse, prostitution, retirement, sports); and a broad range of topics for which social history has provided new vantage points (the Russian Revolution, apartheid, the environment, organized crime, unions). Less extensive entries consider such aspects of social history as quantification, mentalities, and mobility studies, as well as explore social protest, abortion, religion, class structure, and other subjects. Accessible to non-specialists. Annotation copyright by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
