Description - Qualitative Sociology as Everyday Life by Barry Glassner

How can a person draw upon his or her sociological knowledge in everyday life? This volume examines the ways that sociological understanding helps with daily experience. Each contributor works in the qualitative tradition, and the essays reveal how their observations of everyday life can affect research agendas, and vice versa, and reflect the desire to understand experiences in a broader context rather than as random and isolated events. The essays are organized around the notion of place: public places; family spaces; interior spaces; and workplaces.
