Although Erving Goffman never claimed to be a media or communication scholar, his work is definitely relevant to, and has already served as a substantial resource for, those who are. This is the first detailed presentation and analysis of his life and work intended specifically for a communication audience. While primarily an introduction to Goffman's work, those already familiar with his ideas will also learn something new. In addition to summarizing Goffman's major concepts and his influence on other scholars, the book includes an intellectual biography, explication of his methods, and an example of how to extend his ideas. Readers are invited to consider Goffman as a lens through which to view much of the pattern evident in the social world. Goffman's work always appealed to the general public (several of his books became bestsellers), and so this book has implications for those who are interested in the role of media or communication in their own lives as well as those who study it professionally.

Review:

This slender volume punches well above its weight and should find a place on most folklorists' shelves.
(Timothy Tangherllini, Folklore Vol.127 No.3 2016)

Winkin and Leeds-Hurwitz have succeeded in presenting a succinct, eminently readable introduction to the work of Erving Goffman [...]. [...] it provides an excellent, accessible, and rich overview of his prodigious output, making Erving Goffman a useful resource for students and researchers alike. [...] This slender volume punches well above its weight and should find a place on most folklorists' shelves.
(Timothy Tangherllini, Folklore Vol.127 No.3 2016)

Goffman is an intriguing figure, worthy of study as much as his theories. This text manages to separate the man from his theories, yet it illustrates the powerful relationship between the two and how, together, they constitute a continuing influential presence.
(Daniel P. Compora, Journal of Folklore Research Reviews April 2015)
