The Frontier in American History

The Frontier in American History Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the most influential and important books written about the impact of frontier life on a transplanted civilization. Reprinted from original 1920 edition, this edition lucidly reflects Jackson's thoughts on the frontier's role in promoting self-reliance, independence, democracy, immigration and westward expansion. A classic for students, teachers, and general readers.

Book News Annotation:

Shows how factors such as staff competence; emotional, physical, and political elements; and overt and covert organizational dynamics determine whether or not a treatment setting accomplishes its therapeutic aims, within the framework of the Group Relation model of organizational and group processes begun at the Tavistock Clinic in the 1940s. Looks at aspects such as the residential setting in psychotherapeutic work with adolescents, staff selection, and training issues. For helping professionals. No index.
