«Concise but Comprehensive, Anthony Elliott's Reader is an ideal companion to social theory -a real festival of contemporary social thought." Bryan S. Turner, University of Cambridge "Contemporary social theory is a treasure-house but also a minefield. One has to tread warily to find the gems. Anthony Elliott has done just that in selecting some of the most important and influential writings of the past 20 to 30 years. Here are all the familiar names but also some less familiar ones raising different but no less relevant questions. This reader will be invaluable to senior undergraduates and graduates seeking the path-breaking contributions in contemporary social theory." Krishan Kumar, University of Virginia»
