Bremner, J. Gavin
This is a clear and authoritative introduction to infant development. The book moves with logical progression through chapters on perceptual development, cognitive development, and social interaction and development.Although adopting the traditional format for infancy texts, Bremner convincingly shows how current theoretical views call for the reformation of these traditional ways of categorizing infant ability. He reviews the debate at the heart of the subject between views of Piagetian constructionism and biological "ecological" theories, elucidating the competing views and addressing the implications for future research that arise from them. This book provides an up-to-date overview of the subject for undergraduates, and serves as a post-introductory course text.Signed by author on inside cover.Slight fading to covers.257pp.

McDonald, Lynn
Arguing that the beginnings of the social sciences extend much further back than is generally realized, this study traces the methodological foundations, research techniques, and basic concepts of the social sciences from their earliest origins to the beginning of this century. It provides empirical refutation of recent radical political, feminist, and environmentalist critiques that assert that the social sciences inevitably support the power relations of the status quo, are antithetical to the interests of women, and are inherently linked to the domination and destruction of nature. Covering the important eras in the development of the social sciences, this work deals with the early Greeks, the emergence of the scientific method in the 17th century (especially Bacon, Descartes, and Locke), the French Enlightenment (especially Voltaire, Diderot, Condorcet, and Germaine de Stael), and British moral philosophy (especially Hume, Smith, and Catharine Macauley). From the 19th century it includes figures such as Marx, Durkheim, Weber, Quetelet, Harriet Martineau, Florence Nightingale, J.S. Mill, Harriet Taylor Mill, and Beatrice Webb. 397pp. N.B.

Watson, Tony J.
In the third edition of this successful and popular text, Tony Watson explains how the discipline of sociology can contribute to our wider understanding of the variety of work practices and institutions which exist in modern societies. He travels the full journey from the founding ideas of the discipline to postmodernist departures and develops all the main areas: occupations; organizations; work experience; industrial relations; industrial society and theory. The book ends with a thoroughly revised chapter covering the major questions of how work experience and global patterns of relationships are changing now and may change in the future. Thoroughly revised and presented in a new and accessible format, this third edition of Sociology, Work and Industry will prove an indispensable guide to a massive and complex field. 426pp. N.B. Reading crease to spine. Label residue to rear cover.

Adams, John; Peek, George A., Jr. (editor)
A reprint of the 1954 Bobbs-Merrill edition. "The fundamental article of my political creed," declared John Adams, "is that despotism, or unlimited sovereignty, or absolute power is the same in a majority of a popular assembly, an aristocratical council, an oligarchical junto, and a single emperor. Equally arbitrary, cruel, bloody, and in every respect diabolical." The consequences of this article for Adams' thought are nowhere better articulated than in this anthology, which presents his remarkable attempts at constructing a complete political system based on constitutional, balanced, representative government. 223pp.
