The Polish Peasant in Europe and America. Monograph of an Immigrant Group (5 vols, complete)
Boston: Richard G. Badger, 1918-1920. First Edition. Hardcover. The pioneering sociologist's magnum opus, one of the first sociological studies to widely employ first-hand narrative as a tool for analysis. Though Thomas's progressive views on crime and sexuality contributed to the erosion of his academic reputation in his lifetime, The Polish Peasant was and continues to be recognized as a landmark of sociological research and a major contribution to the study of American immigration. Completed over a five-year span and overwhelmingly marketed to institutions, complete sets in attractive condition are today rather difficult to assemble. Five octavo volumes. Original green cloth boards, lettered in gilt on spines; 526+589+418+337+345pp. Vol. 5 spine gilt slightly dulled; else just mild external wear; overall a fresh, Very Good or better set.
