SOCIAL INSIGHT

By the author of Introduction to Social Case and Social Skills in Case Work, this is a selection of short stories for use in supplemental courses in sociology, psychology, education, social work and guidance. The stories speak for themselves- there is no pointing up by the editor- it represents a varied level, from Katherine Mansfield, Susan Glaspell, Saki, Saroyan, Maugham, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, James Joyce, Richard Wright, to lesser names- and on the whole provides literary values as well as social implications, is not wholly concerned with the homeless and the deprived but also with problems in individual relationships. A book for study courses- and reference- rather than entertainment per se.
