Overview

Symbolic interactionism commands its own adherents, meetings, journals, and professional organization. Now it has its own handbook. Reynolds and Herman-Kinney have assembled 44 chapters from 59 scholars to assess the past, present, and future of this key social psychological framework. In this authoritative volume, scholars outline the history of the development of the theory from the time of Cooley, Thomas, and Mead; its various schools and related theoretical models; its key concepts and methods; its relevance to key institutions and substantive areas; and its likely future trends. Together they provide a benchmark that will help shape symbolic interactionist work for the forseeable future. It is a volume that should be on the shelf of all scholars and graduate students in sociology and related social sciences.
