Editorial Reviews


`an extremely useful summary of the work on occupational cognition carried out by Coxon and Jones...makes a major contribution to understanding the cognition and evaluation of occupations. Those who have struggled through the early working papers, and those who have not will find this a stimulating account of the use of multidimensional scaling methods to construct structural models. The authors derive many insights from the ethnomethodology of the later works of Cicourol, and conclude with an intriguing discussion of the possible generative capacity involved in the development of occupational imagery' -- Network, No 37 January 1987 `On methodological grounds alone the book deserves our attention in order to expand our repertoire of techniques for studying social structure' -- Contemporary Sociology
