Studies in the Logic of Official Interpretation
Don Handelman and Elliott Leyton
Price: CDN$19.95
Handelman studies several social workers' interpretation of the facts brought to their attention regarding a case of suspected child abuse, and the effects their perceptions had on their decision-making. Leyton examines the Workmen's Compensation Board and shows how clashes in world view cause conflicting interpretations of rules between officials administering compensation and the miners receiving it.

"From this book we can learn to sympathize with both bureaucrats and their clients in their difficulties at coping with transactions at the interface between the bureaucratic and the everyday social world . . . we are shown how applied anthropology can make a significant contribution toward improving social legislation . . . ."--The Newfoundland Quarterly
