MetadataShow full item record
Content analysis has been defined as "any research technique for making inferences by systematically and objectively identifying specified characteristics within a text." Using the book The General Inquirer: A Computer Approach to Content Analysis a quantitative-qualitative method was developed to analyze the Sunday late-city editions of the New York Times from 3 January 1937 until 7 December 1941. This system was implemented to study American public opinion as reflected in this newspaper and thus ascertain American sentiment relative to China and Japan, in light of the Sino-Japanese Conflict, which extended from 7 July 1937 until 7 December 1941 and the entrance of the United States into the Second World War.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email email@example.com to request access to this SIP.
