This groundbreaking study details the intellectual development of George Herbert Mead as a thinker of great originality and as a practitioner of social reform. Gary Cook traces the genesis of Mead's social psychological and philosophical ideas by analyzing his journal articles and posthumously published writings.

"By a wide margin the most lucid study of Mead's thought ever published, this book should go far toward convincing those who still doubt that Mead is to be counted among America's most important philosophers." -- Peter H. Hare, editor, Transactions of the C.S. Peirce Society "One of the most reliable and valuable contributions to a better understanding of a long-neglected thinker." Hans Joas, Freie Universitat Berlin
