The history of this journal “Symbolic Interaction” is closely intertwined with Howard Becker, not only because he was our inaugurating editor in 1977. Lot’s has been written by Howard Becker over the decades, including his books “Evidence” reviewed by Dagmar Danko in 2018 and “What about Mozart? What about Murder?” reviewed by Scott Grills in 2016.
We now have published Scott Grills’s review of Jean Peneff’s book “Howard Becker: Sociology and Music in the Chicago School” (translated by Robert Dingwall).
