Self and Society, Tenth Edition, is a clearly written, up-to-date, and authoritative introduction to the symbolic interactionist perspective in social psychology and sociology as a whole. Filled with examples, this book has been used successfully in the classroom, and also cited in literature as an authoritative source. Self and Society is not a distillation of textbook knowledge, but rather, a thoughtful, well-organized presentation that makes its own contribution to the advancement of symbolic interactionism. As with every edition, the tenth edition has been thoroughly revised. Major revisions include: sect; Chapter 3, "The Self and Its Social Setting": completely new discussions of motives and motivation, and self-esteem. sect; Chapter 5, "Social Psychology and Social Order": increased emphasis on the creation and joining of social movements, as one of the major ways in which social activities are coordinated. sect; Chapter 6, "Deviance and the Social Order": a greater focus on the interactionist approach and its connection to issues of social order (the arguments with classic theories of deviance have been removed).
