Letter-spacing in Latex appears too tight

In Latex - particularly when using amsbook, words like "subsection" and "We" appear to have their letters squashed together on the screen.  In subsection, the s and c are actually touching, and the e in "We" is tightly tucked under the "W".
This happens even when the pdf file is generated.
Is this a letter spacing or kerning problem?
As it is picked-up from the standard amsbook maths book package, one would think it would be optimized.
Can anyone tell me how to adjust say kerning, please.

Can you post here source of your LaTeX document? As small as possible - just to show this behaviour. Additionally it would be nice to see this source compiled (pdf/dvi) as another attachment. That's because I wasn't able to reproduce your problem in my environment - maybe I missed something?

Thanks for your help again.
Your system does not allow .tex nor .dvi documents.
So I've saved it in Word.
Hope that's OK.

I have attached PDF as it comes out on my sistem (miktex 2.8) using pdflatex. Please check it and point out the problems. (On my first look, I didn't find any.)

Thanks for clearing this up.
The pdf is different to the dvi screen presentation.
I have never ventured into the pdf format.
Still, I'm puzzled - I thought the pdf was simply a kind of unifying format to integrate words and graphics - not an enhancer so to speak.
