The French writer Arnold van Gennep first called attention to the phenomena of status passages in his Rites of Passage one hundred years ago. In Status Passage, first published in 1971, the movement of individuals and groups in contemporary society from one status to another is examined in the light of Gennep's original theory. Glaser and Strauss demonstrate that society emerges as a comparative order. In this order, every organized action, collective or individual, can be seen as a form of status passage.

From one status to another-from childhood to adolescence to adulthood, from being single to being married, movement from one income group, social class or religion to another-there are passages that entail movement into different parts of a social structure and loss or gain in privileges. Types of status passage are described by their proper ties. The authors present a formal theory of status passage in the form of a running theoretical discussion.

The concepts and categories discussed in Status Passage are illuminated by a large number of examples chosen from a wide range of human behavior, and the applicability of the theory to still other examples is made apparent. The result is a stimulating and provocative book that will interest a wide range of sociologists, social psychologists, and other social scientists, and will be useful in a variety of courses.

About the Author:

Barney G. Glaser is founder of the Grounded Theory Institute in California, and has also been a research sociologist at the University of California Medical Center, San Francisco. He is the author or co-author of several books, including The Grounded Theory Perspective II and Experts versus Laymen: A Study of the Patsy and the Subcontractor, published by AldineTransaction.

Review:

“The reader’s view of this book will depend heavily upon whether he admires the work of Parsons or Goffman, Garfinkle or Marx, Merton or Mills. It depends on whether he favors the inductive or deductive approach to research, what he considers theory to be, how he thinks it should be formulated, and what relationship he sees between theory and data. The systematic account of this method of theory building raises fundamental questions which are of concern to all sociologists. Glaser and Strauss provide a valuable opportunity to review these questions.”

—Rex A. Lucas, Contemporary Sociology

“Earlier works [in the series] set the “ground” for this book, which is intended as an analytical treatment of ubiquitous social process referred to as “status passage.””

—Karen S. Cook, Social Forces

“[T]he area of study is an important one and any new impetus given to its development is praiseworthy.”

—Solon T. Kimball, American Journal of Sociology
