This volume makes available to a broad readership dissertation findings from social and behavioral sciences research supported by the Employment and Training Administration. Each of twenty-one dissertations, rewritten in the vernacular, is presented in condensed form for primarily nonacademic readers. These popularized selections, which have been reviewed for accuracy by their authors, are divided into two major parts: (1) stresses in the labor market and (2) stresses on the labor force. Bibliographic information, such as author's name, institution, publication date, title, popular title (provided by the rewriters), and accession number is provided for each. A few sample dissertation formal titles and popular titles are the following: "Empirical Study of the Female Insured Unemployed" ("St Louis Woman"), by Phyllis D.
