Emotions have fundamental implications for all pertinent sociological themes and issues, in particular, social action and social identity, gender, sexuality and intimacy, the embodiment of emotions across the life-course (from childhood to old age), health and illness, and the social organisation of emotions in the workplace. Unique and timely, Emotions in Social Life acts to consolidate the sociology of emotions as a legitimate and viable field of enquiry. It provides a comprehensive 'state of the art' assessment of the sociology of emotions drawing upon work from scholars of international stature, as well as newer writers in the field. It presents new empirical research in conjunction with innovative and challenging theoretical material, and will be essential reading for students of medical sociology, health psychology as well as gender studies.
