Gale Miller’s Review of “The Politics of Sorrow” by Daniel D Martin out

Gale Miller‘s review of “The Politics of Sorrow” discusses Daniel D. Martin’s book on the  “grief, frustration and—sometimes—anger experienced by parents of young people who have been murdered in street violence”. The book is based on a research study that examines interviews with working-class parents who are associated with two different victim-support organisations in Cincinnati. Miller skillfully explains how Martin’s book relates to major debates within symbolic interactionism.
