From the Back Cover:

Key Benefits: Self and Society is a clearly written, up-to-date, and authoritative introduction to the symbolic interactionist perspective in social psychology and to sociology as a whole. Filled with examples, it lends itself to use in both school and real life. A real book, not a distillation of textbook knowledge, it is a thoughtful, well-organized presentation that makes its own contribution to the advancement of symbolic interactionism. Key Topics: Introduces new tabular presentations of pairs of concepts such as acts and social acts or natural signs and symbols. Organized as a set of contrasting answers to key questions, these tables aid student understanding of the material (Chs. 2,3,4, and 5). Presents a new Keywords section at the end of each chapter of the book. Instead of a conventional chapter summary, these keywords are defined succinctly and provide an excellent review of the chapter (Chs. 1-6).

For anyone interested in social psychology and symbolic interactionism.
