We should surely by now have learned that not everything that is worth saying can be said within a single literary form — if the academic article, at least in the oxymoronically named social sci- ences, any longer deserves to be called that. What is said is inseparable from how it expressed. But no. What is required is clarity, not the muddled and muddying thickness of description; the reassuring singularity of a narrative that has clear beginnings, middles, and ends, not the open-ended anarchy of a collage.
Meaning must be made transparent — as if such a thing were possible. Introduction 7 our practice. The academy is not some Archimedean point that stands outside the world it studies. These are the disciplinary mechanisms that construct not only academic subjects but aca- demic subjectivities too. The bottom line is that there is too much to lose. Any text — and to open a still bigger can of worms whatever reality may or may not lie behind the archives, artifacts, oral testimonies, or interviews with surly ghosts3 to which the text is complicatedly connected — exceeds any introductory gloss its author, let alone an editor, might put upon it.
In the passage from the one to the other the McDonalds on the corner too easily reduces to just another instance of global capitalism, and to anticipate some of what is debated in the present volume a myriad of activities from collecting taxes to registering births, marriages, and deaths too smoothly coalesce into something but is it a thing? Unless we are very careful these second-order abstractions then become the terms which debate is conducted, usurping the place of the wealth of particulars from which they were drawn.
The stan- dard article format colludes in this slide by tacitly suggesting that the essence — as distinct from the substance — of any text is capable of being summarized in an introduction and recapitulated in a conclusion. The reductio ad absurdum is the aptly named one- hundred-word Abstract, of which we are not especially fond at the JHS either.
We accept that abstraction may sometimes be neces- sary. But abstraction is always violent. Something has always already changed in the discursive shift from the one register to the other. It is impossible to summarize without ordering and prioritizing.
And it is equally impossible to summarize without remainder. Introductions do far more, as well as a good deal less, than tell us what is to come in a text. Ellis JHS Vol. Undetected location. NO YES.

This is a dummy description. Over the last twenty years the Journal of Historical Sociology has redefined what historical sociology can be. This was accomplished, according to Spencer, by placing all the subordinate clauses, objects and phrases before the subject of a sentence so that, when readers reached the subject, they had all the information they needed to completely perceive its significance.
While the overall influence that "The Philosophy of Style" had on the field of rhetoric was not as far-reaching as his contribution to other fields, Spencer's voice lent authoritative support to formalist views of rhetoric. Spencer influenced literature inasmuch as many novelists and short story authors came to address his ideas in their work. Arnold Bennett greatly praised First Principles , and the influence it had on Bennett may be seen in his many novels.
Jack London went so far as to create a character, Martin Eden , a staunch Spencerian. It has also been suggested [ by whom? Wells used Spencer's ideas as a theme in his novella, The Time Machine , employing them to explain the evolution of man into two species. It is perhaps the best testimony to the influence of Spencer's beliefs and writings that his reach was so diverse.
He influenced not only the administrators who shaped their societies' inner workings, but also the artists who helped shape those societies' ideals and beliefs. Spencer says.
