Understanding the History of the Social Studies


by O. L. Davis, Jr. 1981

The resultant history would not only fill present voids and redress traditional oversight; most importantly, such a history would foster understanding. Practically, it might even contribute to policy deliberations and, as well, inform correctly proposals for action.
