Recchiuti Recommended on Open University

In a recent post on Open University, the New Republic Online’s academic blog, historian and blogger Casey N. Blake recommended John Louis
Recchiuti’s new book, Civic Engagement:
Social Science and Progressive-Era Reform in New York
City
.

"In addition to mapping the elaborate network of
social-science institutes, settlement houses, schools,
think tanks, and government agencies that Progressives
created in New York, Recchiuti deftly explores the
tensions between democracy and expertise that marked
reformist ideas and politics at the turn of the last
century," says Blake.
