If one should see in a bibliography only a careful listing of books and other publications that were directly quoted or used in this volume, then this is definitely not the case or only part of it.
Many of the publications listed here were not consulted for this volume; some may advance views and theories to some extent indifferent or even adverse to those suggested by the author. Conversely, many sources used by the author and quoted in the footnotes are not listed in this bibliography.
Then what was the purpose of this bibliography?
To begin with, this list is focused primarily on values and ideologies. Most of historical sources or documents used in this volume and referred to in footnotes--concerning, for example, time span or architectural projects--are not listed. Furthermore, in spite of the fact that specific chapters deal with planning and strategy, this literature, quoted in footnotes has not been included, with the sole exception of the last book by Liddell- Hartt, a worthy representative of this field indeed.
Those fields have their own and extensive literature, and planning and strategy have been considered in this study in terms of goals and norms. To include even some of the literature of those disciplines would expand the size of this list beyond the intentions of the publishers and the author. The major problem was to keep the bibliography within manageable limits.
The purpose of this bibliography is in part to list publications and sources consulted or referred to but also to indicate the range of interest as well as type of contributions in sociological and related studies of values and ideologies. It was not the purpose of the author to present a survey of theories; a bibliography-- so I hope--reflects this wide range of interest in the field of values.
Some of the publications could not be located in libraries I have been working in, but were mentioned or quoted, and I have considered them as relevant for such bibliography. Others I could locate in Sociological Abstracts or in similar sources. Still others I found in bibliographies and catalogues. My European colleague wrote me about titles that I could not find in New York libraries, but I trust Dr. Friedrichs's judgment. His own bibliography was an important and useful guide.
