Still solid hardcover.; "... we are to regard the deaf as certain components of the state who demand classification and attention in its machinery of organization. Our attitude is thus that of the social economist, and the object of our treatment is a part or section of the community in its relation to the greater and more solidified body of society. More particularly, our purpose is twofold. We first consider the deaf, who they are, and their place in society, and then examine the one great form of treatment which the state gives, namely, the making of provision for their education." - Introduction. Early work by sociologist Harry Best on the treatment of the deaf in the United States. ; Library of Economics and Politics; Ex-Library; xviii, 340 pages.
