  • Rethinking Europeby Gerard Delanty; Chris Rumford

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 60.95

    Dominant approaches to the transformation of Europe ignore contemporary social theory interpretations of the nature and dynamics of social change. Here, Delanty and Rumford argue that we need a theory of society in order to understand Europeanization. This book advances the case that Europeanization should be theorized in terms of: globalization ... more...

  • Theorizing Modernityby Peter Wagner

    SAGE Publications 2001; US$ 45.00

    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...

    Taylor and Francis 2006; US$ 225.00

    This innovative publication maps out the broad and interdisciplinary field of contemporary European social theory.

This... 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$ 41.00

    Over the last four decades Jürgen Habermas has forged an innovative and much-discussed theory of contemporary capitalist society. Building on Max Weber's thesis that the dynamic of capitalism actually erodes individual freedom and the meaningfulness of social life - famously resulting in a culture of 'specialists without spirit, sensualists without... more...

  • 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...

  • Jean Baudrillardby William Pawlett

    Taylor and Francis 2007; US$ 49.95

    This uniquely engaging introduction to Jean Baudrillard?s controversial writings covers his entire career focusing on Baudrillard?s central, but little understood, notion of symbolic exchange. Through the clarification of this key term a very different Baudrillard emerges: not the nihilistic postmodernist and enemy of Marxism and Feminism that his... more...

  • Max Weberby Stephen Kalberg

    Wiley 2008; US$ 145.95

    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. Gathers Weber’s writings in a comprehensive collection,... more...

  • Nationalism, Social Theory and Durkheimby Dr James Dingley

    Palgrave Macmillan 2008; US$ 115.00

    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. This book shows that social theory should be a major tool in helping explain national, religious and identity problems. more...
