All people derive particular identities from their roles in society, the groups they belong to, and their personal characteristics. Introduced almost thirty years ago, identity theory is a social psychological theory in the field of sociology that attempts to understand identities, theirsources in interaction and society, their processes of operation, and their consequences for interaction and society. The theory brings together in a single framework the central roles of both meaning and resources in human interaction and purpose. This book describes identity theory, its origins,the research that supports it, and its future direction. It covers the relation between identity theory and other related theories as well as the nature and operation of identities. In addition, the book discusses the multiple identities that individuals hold from their multiple positions in societyand organization as well as the multiple identities activated by many people interacting in groups and organizations. And, it covers the manner in which identities offer both stability and change to individuals. Co-authored by the originators of the theory, this book accessibly presents decades ofresearch in a single volume, making the full range of this powerful new theory understandable to readers at all levels.

Jan Stets is a sociological social psychologist who studies self, identity, emotions, and interaction. She is the author of two books and over 40 research articles that have appeared in such journals as Sociological Theory, Social Psychology Quarterly, Journal of Health and Social Behavior, and Sociological Perspectives.
