New Book Review out: Michael Dellwing on “Updating Charles Horton Cooley” edited by N. Ruiz-Junco and B. Brossard #sssi #Cooley #sociology

Charles Horton Cooley is one of the key figures within sociology and symbolic interactionism. Yet, despite the importance of Cooley’s work a (re-)appreciation of his work and its relevant to current debate has been long overdue. Natalia Ruiz-Junco and Baptiste Brossard have edited a book entitled “Updating Charles H. Cooley: Contemporary Perspectives on a Sociological Classic” that presents “the reader with texts that form a cohesive whole. This book thus offers a necessary and timely reframing of Cooley. It inspires thought on digital culture, the inequality of imagined communities, the role of emotion and writing.”
