Self and Society is a clearly written, up-to-date, and authoritative introduction to the symbolic interactionist perspective in social psychology and in sociology as a whole.
Filled with examples, this book has been used not only in the classroom, but also cited in literature as an authoritative source. Self and Society is not a distillation of textbook knowledge, but rather, a thoughtful, well-organized presentation that makes its own contribution to the advancement of symbolic interactionism.
This venerable introduction to the symbolic interactionist approach to social psychology is updated from the 1997 edition with a new tabular presentation of some concepts and a keywords section providing definitions and a review of important ideas.
