Reviews

"A sort of Richard Feynman of the social sciences, notable for his street smarts, his informal manner, and his breezy, pungent prose style.... The influence of Becker's early work remains profound."
- Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker
"Becker is back with new reflections that take us into public opinion, the nature of knowledge, and the insides of social science history. As always, he shines with ethnography, with reflection, and in telling us how social science works - in real time, and, when it comes to it, for all time."
- Harvey Molotch, professor of sociology at New York University
"An exceptionally interesting and worthwhile contribution to the study of deviant behavior."
- American Sociological Review
