Review quote

-Written by internationally recognized experts in the field, the first part of this book is an excellent guide to the different strands of qualitative sociology. The authors are able to convey complicated ideas in clear and accessible language. The authors then demonstrate that these ideas have a tangible impact on our understanding of a range of contemporary social issues. I highly recommend Sociologies of Interaction.-Philip Manning, Cleveland State University-It neither simplifies the complexity of the three key approaches to social interaction, nor does it complicate the elegant simplicity of their central ideas. Along the way students are offered dozens of empirical hooks to hang the ideas from, leaving little excuse for losing their interactionist hats. Not so much a foundation, then, as a hallway connecting into a number of further intriguing rooms.-Eric Laurier, Edinburgh University "Written by internationally recognized experts in the field, the first part of this book is an excellent guide to the different strands of qualitative sociology.
