This text presents the basic concepts and theoretical insights of symbolic interactionism for a wide range of students, comparing this perspective with others in social psychology. This sixth edition presents the essential concepts derived from Mead and other figures in sociology: explains the origins, development and significance of the self: analyzes the processes of definition of the situation, role-making and role-taking that underlie the formation of conduct in social interaction: shows how everyday social interaction is linked to larger social structures: examines the significance of deviant behaviour for the social order: and examines the social uses of symbolic interactionism.
