Historians must count

I have a research project in mind. It involves the use of statistics. I am a typical humanities grad with no real background in the quantitative social sciences, and need some guidance. What I'm interested in is: tracking, tallying, and correlating some of the everyday events recorded in personal diaries from a particular historical period. [more inside]

Took courses, got A's, still not sure what it is.

When I was younger, I read a sociology textbook trying to find out why sociology was treated as a separate discipline and how it differs fundamentally from the other social sciences. I learned a lot about Weber and Durkheim, but I still don't get it. Can you help? [more inside]

Recommended recent books in the social sciences?

I'm doing some acquisitions (read: buying) for a small public library, and looking for recommended works in the social sciences. Please note: this is in Ontario, Canada so I don't need a ton of books on American politics or culture (although we do cover those areas). If they're older than five or ten years, they'd really need to be a 'classic' to be considered. I have looked elsewhere, and I'm not being lazy here - I just know that the AskMeFi crowd will have some undiscovered gems for me. Thanks in advance!
