About the Author
This is a well-conceived, sophisticated, and intellectually stimulating book. I truly enjoyed reading it.The scholarship is sound and the ideas/arguments are communicated clearly and effectively. I believe this book will be useful for scholars in a variety of fields who are interested in developing their understanding of narrative theory and method, but also scholars who are focused on a wide variety of substantive areas who are interested in developing a better understanding of the storied, cognitive, and emotional dimensions of the main moral and political issues (and contentions) in their area of expertise.— Thomas DeGloma, Hunter College and the Graduate Center, CUNY
This book offers an accessible and thorough review of the significance of stories and storytelling across the many facets of social life, from identities and culture to social problems and public policies. The book also serves as an excellent introduction to sociological reasoning at its best. Professor Loseke’s lucid and engaging writing combined with her vast expertise make this book an instant classic and a must-read for both novices and specialists in the field of narrative analysis and social sciences in general.
