In-depth, highly readable study of a familiar role in contemporary American society. A wealth of empirical data - not a feminist tract.
Spradley defined the field of symbolic interactionism. This is one of his early works. Just excellent.
I used this book for an ethnography glass, and it was by far my favorite book we read. It was a great example of how an ethnography can be entertaining as well as analytic.
