Excerpt from Social Control: A Survey of the Foundations of Order

The foundation of this book was laid in a series of articles under the title "Social Control," contributed to the American Journal of Sociology between March, 1896, and May, 1898. After protracted researches abroad, the series was taken up again, and seven supplementary articles have since appeared. To the ever generous appreciation and encouragement of the editor. Dr. Albion W. Small, is due not only the publication of the articles, but also in large measure the stimulus to round and complete the studies into their present form.

All these studies fall within one narrow tract in the province of Sociology. Social Psychology, which term I apply to the branch of knowledge that deals with the psychic interplay between man and his environing society, falls into two subdivisions. One of these, Social Ascendency, deals with the domination of society over the individual; the other, Individual Ascendency, - embracing such topics as invention, leadership, the rôle of great men, - deals with the domination of the individual over society.
