This study examines key aspects of social structure by using a new interpretation of emotions such as fear, resentment, shame, and confidence, to redefine their roles in social processes. While much has been written on the social consequences of pathological emotions, this book demonstrates their relevance to everyday social interaction. In revealing the importance of emotions in sociology, J.M. Barbalet re-evaluates the nature and history of social theory.
