Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

From 1909-1914 the Pittsburgh Survey brought together statisticans, social workers, engineers, lawyers, physicians, economists, and city planners to study the effects of industrialization on the city of Pittsburgh.  Pittsburgh Surveyed examines the accuracy and the impact of the influential Pittsburgh Survey, emphasizing its role in the social reform movement of the early twentieth century.

Book News Annotation:

Thirteen essays examine the accuracy and impact of the Pittsburg Survey (1909-1914)--in which statisticians, social workers, engineers, lawyers, physicians, economists, labor investigators, city planners, and photographers documented Pittsburg's degraded environment, corrupt civic institutions, and exploited labor force and made a compelling case for reforming corporate capitalism. The authors place this undisputed classic of social science research firmly in the context of the social reform movement of the early 20th century.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

"Like the original Pittsburgh Survey, Pittsburgh Surveyed is a treasure trove for historians and other social scientists interested in the daily life of working people and the reformers who studied them in the early twentieth century". Kathryn Kish Sklar, author of Florence Kelley and the Nation's Work: the Rise of Women's Political Culture, 1830-1900

Synopsis:

The Pittsburgh Survey of 1909 to 1914 was a study to show the effects of heavy industry on one American city. This text of 13 essays examines the accuracy and impact of the Pittsburgh Survey, both on social science as a discipline and on Pittsburgh itself.
