Review quote

Finally! A textbook on the sociology of emotions conceptualized and written exclusively for an undergraduate audience. Scott Harris has filled an enormous gap with this accessible overview of the most interesting concepts, provocative findings, and latest research in the study of emotions. Replete with timely examples and infused with humor, students who accept Harris' invitation will be richly rewarded for doing so! - John R. Mitrano, Sociology, Central Connecticut State University. With its clear writing and relevant everyday examples, An Invitation to the Sociology of Emotions is a highly accessible way for students to engage the core concepts from Hochschild's and others' work. This concise textbook provides a sociology-of-emotions lens through which students can view the self, interaction, and society in a new light. -Jennifer Lois, Sociology, Western Washington University Scott Harris has identified a problem facing anyone attempting to teach-or learn about-the sociology of emotions: the lack of material aimed at beginners. An Invitation to the Sociology of Emotions solves that problem. Instructors and students alike will appreciate its clear presentation of concepts and theories, its accessible language, and its use of examples from recent research in the field. -Leslie Irvine, Sociology, University of Colorado, Boulder Scott Harris gives a grand tour through the sociology of emotions, expertly engaging readers with fascinating topics, insightful theory, and pivotal foundations for understanding social interactions.
