|About the Book|
This insightful volume collects essays from some of the most renowned sociologists working today. They examine the ways that sociological understanding helps them with their daily experiences. These essays reflect the desire to understand experiences in a broader context rather than as random and isolated events - and how the qualitative approach can achieve that end. Organized around the notion of place - public places, family spaces, interior spaces, and workplaces, the essays touch on the major sub-disciplines within sociology.
