«`The publication of this volume will make a dramatic impact, for it shifts the boundaries of current understandings of the field of social theory. It presents a set of cogent, well- informed, well-organized discussions of many authors who are not conventionally seen as relevant to that field. On the other hand, it also reconsiders a number of the field′s established figures and focuses on their contribution to a few thematic concerns, which the editors formulate compellingly in their introduction′ - Gianfranco Poggi, European University Institute

`A most innovative and creative collection of essays on contemporary social theory. What stands out about this book is the editors′ choice of thinkers.... Included here are essays not only on many of the most important contemporary social theorists (including some interesting, even surprising, choices), but also on many of the thinkers of the recent past who are having a powerful impact on contemporary social thought. A welcome addition to the personal libraries of not only social theorists, but those in a wide range of specialities in the social sciences′ - George Ritzer, University of Maryland
