About the Book

This book is a compilation of articles written from 1971 to 1996 and written for Dr. Everett Hughes at Boston College or Dr. Anselm Strauss at the University of California San Francisco Medical Center. The articles describe different work scenarios from the perspective of the workers. The early ones were written for class assignments at Boston College or were part Dr. Davis’s dissertation work. The later ones were written for conferences or journal articles. None of the papers have appeared in print but all represent the qualitative approach known as the Chicago school or Chicago tradition as taught by both Dr. Hughes and Dr. Strauss.
