2 Katz, Michael B. THE PEOPLE OF HAMILTON, CANADA WEST: FAMILY AND CLASS IN A MID-NINETEENTH-CENTURY CITY.
Cambridge Harvard University Press 1975 0674661257 / 9780674661257 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good - Very Good- 
381 pp, 9 1/2" H. Tables, graphs. "(R)econstructs the social structure, life cycle, and domestic relations within a mid-nineteenth century Canadian city. (Katz's) analysis draws on the records of the entire population found on the manuscript census, assessment rolls, city directories, newspapers, and other sources. (He) has explored the relationships between inequality, ethnicity, sex, mobility, transiency, household structure, and coming-of-age during a period of profound social change. At one level, the book describes in great detail the nature of family and society in a commercial city. Simul-taneously, it uses the patterns uncovered in Hamilton, which the author compares to those other historians have found elsewhere, to speculate about broad questions in social history and social theory. Finally, the book is an exploratory exercise in the application of quantitative techniques to social history; as such its interest lies in its method as well as its substance. The author contents that two themes - structural rigidity and individual transiencey - characterized life in the commercial city. Despite the massive flow of people into and out of the city, its basic structures remained virtually unaltered, thought the identity of its occupants changed dramatically. In part, the history of the family reflected these two themes; but the family had an independent existence as well. For, despite some structural parallells, the family served somewhat different purposes than its modern counterpart, especially the sheltering of young people during a period Katz calls 'semi-autonomy', a phase of the life cycle that virtually has disappeared." Bump and tiny tear at bottom of spine - light wrinkling at top of spine. Dust jacket has heavy creasing and small tear archivally taped at bottom of spine, very light wrinkling at top edge, light rubbing and soiling on rear panel.

David McKay, New York, 1973. 
388 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. "This volume brings together research being conducted on the foreign conflict behavior of nations from a linkage perspective. Foreign conflict behavior is viewed as an outcome of several pos sible inputs, among them domestic conflict behavior, domestic stress, level of economic development, as well as systemic considerations. Several essays which deal with the relationship between domestic and international behavior from a the o r e t i c a l perspective lay the groundwork for the data-based studies which then make up the core of the volume. Aggregate and event data are utilized in a variety of statistical models. The book concludes with exploratory work on domestic co nf li ct b eh av io r a s explained by external conditions."

Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of sp ine an d f lap -fo lds , a few tiny edge tears, slight fading to spine color, small bump across spine with tiny closed puncture.
