"A unique and important contribution to sociological theory. The editors have brought together a set of successful case studies of theoretical methods illustrated through the development of substantive research programs. All are subsumed under the broad topic of group process, but the substantive areas differ dramatically. . . . Very few case studies of metatheoretical and theoretical strategies exist, and this uniqueness is one reason the book is so important."
