The Goffman Reader aims to bring the most complete collection of Erving Goffman's (1922-1982) writing and thinking as a sociologist. Among the most inventive, unique and individualistic of thinkers in American sociology, his works first appeared in the early 1950's at a time when a more formal, traditional sociology dominated the scene. In this collection, Goffman's work is arranged into four categories: the production of self, the confined self, the nature of social life, and the framing of experience. Through this arrangement, readers will not only be presented with Goffman's thinking in chronological order, but also with a framework of analysis that clearly introduces the social theoretical ideas by which Goffman shaped the direction of sociological thought through the late twentieth century.

From the Back Cover:

Erving Goffman (1922-82) is considered to be among the greatest andmost inventive of American sociologists. His works first appearedat a time when traditional, formal American sociology dominated thescene. They introduced fresh, new ideas and ways of thinking aboutthe individual in the social world.

Although Goffman is more often thought of as being grounded insymbolic interactionism, he was in fact the first to raisequestions about the socially constructed self, the distinctionbetween public identity versus the private self, the role of genderin society, and the study of public spaces. These themes remain ofprimary interest today, making Goffman one of the most influentialthinkers in late twentieth-century social thought.

For the first time in any collection, readers will have accessto the complete development of Goffman's writing and thinking fromhis earliest, lesser-known works to his final masterpieceFelicity's Condition. Included in this collection are piecesfrom Goffman's classic works including Stigma, Asylums, ThePresentation of Self in Everyday Life, and Forms ofTalk.
