One of the most influential philosophers and cultural theorists of the twentieth century, Theodor Adorno poses a considerable challenge to students. His works can often seem obscure and impenetrable, particularly for those with little knowledge of the philosophical traditions on which he draws. Adorno: A Guide for the Perplexed is an engaging and accessible account of his thought that does not patronise or short-change the reader. Those new to Adorno - and those who have struggled to make headway with his work - will find this an invaluable resource: clearly written, comprehensive and specifically focused on just what makes Adorno difficult to read and understand.

'Alex Thompson's book not only illuminates Adorno's most important ideas, it makes an original contribution to contemporary social theory... The book will be of great clarificatory use for undergraduates, and will provide much stimulus to postgraduates and academics as well.' Darrow Schecter, University of Sussex * Blurb from reviewer *
