'I can't wait to assign this thoughtful, balanced, beautifully theorized book to my students! Its subtle observations challenge some of our most cherished theories and common sense ideas about a kind of experience that many humanitarian organizations around the world try to produce. Social researchers will savor the book's clear and direct major contributions to social theory, organizational theory, and the sociology of emotions.' Nina Eliasoph, University of Southern California
