The sociology of Erving Goffman has inspired generations of sociologists throughout the world. Students and scholars alike have in Goffman’s unsurpassable and generous ability to capture the world of everyday life discovered an emporium of useful, incisive and quite often humorous analyses, concepts and ideas. The Contemporary Goffman highlights the continued relevance of Goffman to sociology and related disciplines – to theoretical discussions as well as to substantive empirical research – through contributions dealing with a variety of topics and themes. Some contributions concentrate on locating or reinterpreting Goffman’s work as a special kind of sociology (as is found in his literary sensibilities or his fieldwork strategies). Others focus on overlooked aspects and neglected potentials of his sociology (by applying his perspective to studies of gender, emotions and violence), while others still relate his concepts and ideas to substantive research areas (such as the media, mobile telephones, hospitals, surveillance technologies and tourism).

Michael Hviid Jacobsen is a Professor in the Department of Sociology, Social Work and Organisation at Aalborg University, Denmark.Review:
"...The Contemporary Goffman offers much insight and commentary on the world of Goffman, and will stimulate anybody to consider the breadth of analysis and application that this world offers. It also makes a vigorous case for viewing the oeuvre as truly original in sociology, and Goffman himself as one of its most creative, if not finest, writers." ―Jim Cosgrave, Trent University, Canadian Journal of Sociology 35, 4
"...this collection as a whole and especially by way of part 3 demonstrates what a number of the authors assert―that Goffman’s work remains as fresh now as it was in his own time."―American Journal of Sociology, volume 117, number 1 (1 July 2011), Douglas W. Maynard, University of Wisconsin, USA
