Excerpt from The Settlement Horizon: A National Estimate
Indispensable assistance at many points has come from associa tion with our immediate colleagues at South End House and from the larger fellowship of the Boston settlements.
Settlement work, though predominantly localized, covers a range of active interests as wide as civilization, all of them in course of development. It will be understood, therefore, that each phase of a subject so many-sided will have bearings that cannot be covered under any one head. We therefore suggest reference to the Index by those who would follow up any specific topic in the settlement program. A selection of authoritative books and articles on the different phases of settlement work is presented in the Bibliography at the end of the volume. For an ordered outline of the work of individual houses our Handbook of Settlements, published in 1910 by the Russell Sage Foundation, should be consulted.
