Reviews

"Norman K. Denzin's The Research Act is a research methods textbook written explicitly from a symbolic interactionist perspective. . . . Denzin's discussion of the development of sociological theory properly stresses the impact of sociological values, reward structures, and the political and institutional structures of the sociological community." --William S. Fox, Contemporary Sociology

Denzin's discussion of the development of sociological theory properly stresses the impact of sociological values, reward structures, and the political and institutional structures of the sociological community." --William S. Fox, Contemporary Sociology "An extraordinary work in which Denzin does the best job to date of synthesizing the methodologies of the interactionist perspectives of the symbolic interactionists, on the one hand, and the ethnomethodologists, on the other. . . . Destined to be a standard reference in sociological methodology for years to come." --Choice "A first class work. It should have a revolutionary impact on social research--indeed on the entire scientific enterprise in the social psychology sciences. Admirably suited to use as a textbook in courses on methodology." --Herbert Blumer, University of California, Berkeley
