Self and Society A Symbolic Interactionist Social Psychology by John P. Hewitt, David Shulman

Self and Society A Symbolic Interactionist Social Psychology



Self and Society A Symbolic Interactionist Social Psychology by John P. Hewitt, David Shulman

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.
