I do labour history, wikipedia and cow clickers. I also do "internet culture."

comment Who did the middle class in ca. 1850- ca. 1900 France constitute of?
Thanks! "Class" is unfortunately a big powerful tool that is often hidden beneath multiple incompatible theories, and "narrative." Gives me an idea of a question, actually.

I'd suggest trying to find University course guides for the object of your interest, and look at their reading list. University textbooks should be superior to high school textbooks (if still radically deficient). After that, look for the "monographs," the single author research books in the reading list. For example, if you were interested in the English Working Class I'd probably suggest Hammond & Hammond's Town Labourer or Engels English Working Class in 1844 or E.P. Thompson's Making. These should appear in a reading list on UK industrialisation.

@Ovi might, for example, try reading for the point at which "class" is introduced, search "class" in the index, or quote small portions of the text where class is discussed to help us. Answers will be wildly different depending on which schema of class is in use.

As there's no way to know which system of classes is under discussion from the question, the question is currently unanswereable. Your book should make clear from its own wording what it means, if it doesn't, I would suggest your book is junk.

comment Was the take off of neural computing research in the 80's due to Japan?
As I've previously said, this question goes to the reason a research programme was launched in a computer science discipline. Until HPS/STS scholars get around to historicising computing research funding in the US in the 1980s this question won't be answerable historically. Trivial searches indicate this hasn't yet happened. However, as the question goes to a disciplinary question in a computing science field, you will almost certainly get results there. As such, this question cannot be answered historically.

Given the time lag in historiography, "30 years" is a current event in terms of archival opening. Its highly unlikely that historians of science have published specifically on US computing funding in the 1980s. A trivial FUTON search in a major Computing history journal reveals no hits for neural: computer.org/portal/web/search/…

Probably needs to be migrated to a computer science stack exchange. The question relates to why a computer science research programme was commenced.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is a resource request for statistical analyses; not a request for an answer to the question.
