Eighteen articles presenting research efforts at Harvard in the early 1950s to construct a comprehensive paradigm for understanding humans as social creatures.

Murray, Robvert R. Sears, Richard C. Sheldon and Samuel A. Stouffer. Dense, academic prose, not for the fainthearted but important for those on doctoral journeys.
