"Symbols, Selves, and Social Reality offers the best overview of an interactionist approach to social psychology available on the market. The writing is superb and capable of engaging students from a wide variety of backgrounds."--Jason Sumerau, Florida State University "I am incredibly pleased with the way that this text is crafted; it is sophisticated without being impenetrable. Part of its unique brilliance is the contemporary relevance of the material. From theories of animal selfhood to autoethnographic methods, Symbols, Selves, and Social Reality reflects the contemporary vibrancy of interactionist scholarship."--John Bryce Merrill, Indiana University-South Bend
