MEDIA REVIEWS

'Nigel Dodd is to be congratulated for a most intelligent, mature, organized, balanced, and sane account of the major trends in European social theory over the last century and a half. I know of no sounder secondary source on the theories of modernity and postmodernity. He brings clarity and order to a range of literature that is too often murky and unordered, and for that several generations of scholars and students will be grateful.' --Neil J. Smelser, Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences, Stanford '[An] excellent guide to the state of the art in contemporary social theory...provide[s] excellent critical accounts of the evolution and contemporary relevance of modern social theory.' (Sociological Research Online) 'Dodd's work is thus both a survey of social theory...and an effort to find a new way forward. The book is consciously positioned as a college course text, meaning that unlike truckloads of others on the subject, it is both readable and explicable for those without an MA in the History of Consciousness.' (Canadian Journal of Political Science)
