MEDIA REVIEWS

"Howard Becker's long and distinguished career receives a welcome and engaging review. Peneff's book, in Dingwall's translation, more than does justice to Becker's clarity of thought and expression. The modesty of Becker's claims is matched only by the scale of his achievements. The reception of Becker's sociology in France is a particularly intriguing aspect of the book and of his contribution to sociological reasoning more widely."

Paul Atkinson, Cardiff University, UK

"Peneff suggests intriguing insights into the work of Howard Becker through his lens as a French sociologist. He encourages the reader to think more broadly and in depth about Becker's work and to question some of our assumptions about French sociology. Extensive quotes from Becker's interviews may be unfamiliar to many readers, further illuminating his contributions to sociology."

Ruth Horowitz, New York University, USA

"Peneff provides an original and comprehensive appreciation of Howard Becker's work conducted over more than 50 years examining the processes and interactions that mark everyday life in a variety of social worlds. An important study for qualitative researchers and for all those working in the spirit of classic Chicago sociology!"

Bob Emerson, University of California, Los Angeles, USA
