ABSTRACT
The article examines the trends in the social history and the possibilities of behavioral approaches to social change in the U.S. The change of intellectual climate in social history which resulted from an economic depression is a sign of failure of the 1920s. This failure according to social historians can be linked to an inadequate method to define the concept of the term social. Some of the trends in social history include sports-field, the ballroom, the garden-party and tap-room. It is emphasized by Perkins that the old school of social history lacked a unifying theme.
