Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is social theory at its very best. In a host of domains - concerning cultural difference, postmodernism, the politics of identity, and nationalism - Calhoun breaks new ground." Charles Taylor

"This is a very well informed and very rigorous critical survey of Critical Social Theory." Pierre Bourdieu

"A brilliant synthesis of theory and history: Calhoun works at the cutting edge, facing the future but carrying his traditions with him." Peter Beilharz

"This book explores Critical Theory's origins, but more importantly it also shows how certain contemporary writers, despite not usually being recognised as such, have as much claim to the title 'critical theorist' as did Adorno and Horkheimer. It is this essential extension of critical analysis into today's body of theoretical concerns that gives the book its particular importance." Alan Sica

From the Back Cover

In this outstanding reinterpretation - and extension - of the Critical Theory tradition, Craig Calhoun surveys the origins, fortunes and prospects of this most influential of theoretical approaches. Moving with ease from the early Frankfurt School to Habermas, to contemporary debates over postmodernism, feminism and nationalism, Calhoun breathes new life into Critical Social Theory, showing how it can learn from the past and contribute to the future.
