History / Biographical Note

History

International Encyclopedia of the Social Science is a multi-volume reference work containing articles by leading social scientists. Established at the University of Chicago, IESS moved to New York and was published by Crowell, Collier, and MacMillan in 1968. The Encyclopedia was served by a large staff of specialty editors, and an advisory board of internationally know scholars in the fields covered.
