9780136051930: Symbolic Interactionism: An Introduction, an Interpretation, an Integration

Using a unique step-by-step, integrated approach, this text organizes the basic concepts of symbolic interactionism in such a way that students understand them clearly and are able to apply them to their own lives. It emphasizes the active side of human beings–humans as definers and users of the environment, humans as problem solvers and in control of their own actions–and it shows students how society makes us, and how we in turn shape society.

Review:

General Thoughts

 

“Charon’s work is appropriate for undergraduate social psychology courses at introductory and advanced levels.  It can serve as an excellent introduction to Symbolic Interactionism even at the graduate level.  There is no other text I can think of that attempts such a comprehensive introduction to the perspective.”

Dr. Joel O. Powell, Minnesota State University, Moorhead

 

“I really like this book.  It is well written and would generate a great deal of discussion.”

Dr. Rhonda Matthews, Edinboro University of Pennsylvania

 

“This book is very reliable and credible!”

Jennifer L. Kalfsbeek, St. Paul College

 

Readability and Writing Style

 

“Charon makes very difficult concepts easy to understand without compromising their importance and complexity.  The student is held in mind throughout.”

Dr. Joel O. Powell, Minnesota State University, Moorhead

 

“This is perhaps the most clearly-written social science text I have ever read.”

Dr. Joel O. Powell, Minnesota State University, Moorhead

 

“It’s a good combination of intellectual and accessible.”

Dr. Rhonda Matthews, Edinboro University of Pennsylvania

 

“I appreciated the order and flow of the chapters in this textbook.  They are very cohesive, each chapter either supporting the coming chapter, or transitioning smoothly from the previous chapter.  My introductory-level students are able to keep up with the reading with little problem.”

Jennifer L. Kalfsbeek, St. Paul College
