This review is from: Stigma: Notes on the Management of Spoiled Identity (Paperback)
Although written at a time when we thought different, and certainly spoke in different terms about people with sensory and physical disabilities, this is essential stuff for anyone interested in the interface between "normals" and excluded groups in society. Goffman's easy to read yet informative style is backed-up by plenty of anecdotal evidence.
