Nearly three decades since it was published, this book remains the finest study of Garfinkel's seminal ideas. It locates Garfinkel within the history of 20th century social thought, and explicates what was so innovative about his view of the role of sense-making in the construction of human action. It is sophisticated yet accessible, exceedingly well written, and has a kind of narrative drive that's rare in a work of social science scholarship.
