  • Theorizing Modernityby Peter Wagner

    SAGE Publications 2001; US$ 56.00

    This book argues that sociology has lost its ability to provide critical diagnoses of the present human condition because sociology has stopped considering the philosophical requirements of social enquiry. The book attempts to restore that ability by retrieving some of the key questions that sociologists tend to gloss over, inescapability and attainability.... more...

  • Against Eurocentrismby Rajani Kannepalli Kanth

    Palgrave Macmillan 2006; US$ 80.00

    This book renders an uncompromising verdict on the 'scourge' of our millennium: modernism, itself the artifact of certain late Eurocentric propensities. Kanth argues that while modernism is possessed of some virtues, they are purchased at far too high a cost--indeed a cost that neither the species nor the planet can, on any scale, find affordable.... more...

  • Habermas and Contemporary Societyby John Sitton

    Palgrave Macmillan 2003; US$ 39.00

    Over the last four decades Jürgen Habermas has forged an innovative and much-discussed theory of contemporary capitalist society.

  • Methodology of the Oppressedby Chela Sandoval; Angela Y. Davis

    University of Minnesota Press 2000; US$ 60.00

    In a work with far-reaching implications, Chela Sandoval does no less than revise the genealogy of theory over the past thirty years, inserting what she terms ?U.S. Third World feminism? into the narrative in a way that thoroughly alters our perspective on contemporary culture and subjectivity. more...

  • Negotiating Postmodernismby Wayne Gabardi

    University of Minnesota Press 2000; US$ 60.00

    Joining the modern-postmodern debate, this book suggests that the polarizing polemics of the radical postmodernists who once dominated the discussion have given way to a new "critical postmodernism" characterized by dialogue, accommodation, and synthesis. A comprehensive survey, Negotiating Postmodernism also marks the arrival of a powerful,... more...

    This unique volume gathers Weber's writings on a broad array of themes, from the nature of work, to the political culture of democracy, to the uniqueness of the West, to the character of the family and race relations, to the role of science and the fate of ethical action in the modern world.

  • Nationalism, Social Theory and Durkheimby Dr James Dingley

    Palgrave Macmillan 2008; US$ 110.00

    Ethno-national and religious identity and violence dominate modern politics, from Northern Ireland to terrorism in Sri Lanka, the former Yugoslavia or Afghanistan and Iraq.
