The Impact of Population Mobility on Political Structure: Boston, 1830-1940

Study using social science concepts and methods to determine how the movement of people--from place to place, upward in the social structure, and into wider contexts of association--has affected political behavior. Emphasis on role of political party in relating a highly mobile population to its community, thereby imparting stability to both the political and social system. Method applied to Boston, 1830-1940. Fellow one of founders of the Historical Methods Newsletter, a quarterly devoted to the quantitative analysis of social, economic, and political development.
