The Role of Politics in Social Change

Excerpt

The following lectures were given at New York University in November 1935 in the series presented by the Stokes Foundation. The observations here outlined are based in part upon the writer's general experience and reflection upon government, but more particularly upon his recent membership of and relations with President Hoover's Research Committee on Recent Social Trends, President Roosevelt's National Resources Board, and the Social Science Research Council's Commission of Inquiry on Public Service Personnel. It should perhaps be said further that these lectures are a development of special phases of my work on POLITICAL POWER and of other forthcoming studies dealing more specifically and constructively with the emerging political philosophies and programs of our day.

I wish to express here my appreciation of the services of my daughter Elizabeth in the preparation of this manuscript.
