The Self and Society Reader by Ann Branaman


The Self and Society Reader by Ann Branaman

Self and Society explores the ways in which society, culture, and history affect how we define our experiences and ourselves. This reader contains 24 essays divided into four topical sections: the social construction of reality, sociology of thought and emotions, the self in social context, and interaction and inequality.


Self and Society is one of the best anthologies I have ever read. With its publication, Branaman establishes herself as a leader among scholarly anthologizers in sociology. The book is certain to become a favorite with scholars, students, and all others who simply want to read about the mysteries of the worlds between selves and societies. Charles Lemert, Wesleyan University Ann Branaman has given us a rich collection of essays that make clear the contribution of the sociological perspective on social psychology. Whether classical or contemporary, each essay is a gem. Focusing especially on the social construction of reality, the sociology of thought and emotions, interaction and inequality and the self in social context, this collection is a must read for all sociologists. Patricia Ticineto Clough, The Graduate Center of the City University of New York Self and Society is a fantastic resource for anyone wishing to learn more about sociological social psychology.
