MEDIA REVIEWS

" Social Theory of Fear represents an important theoretical synthesis, bringing together various and interdependent strands of social theory (including the Frankfurt School of Critical Theory, Peircean semiotics, and World Systems Theory) in a new, interesting, and enlightening way. Geoffrey R. Skoll s work represents what is best in contemporary critical theory, echoing themes in postmodern theorists like Zizek and Badiou. But Skoll refashions postmodern philosophy, refracting it through a sociological imagination shaped by American semiotic pragmatism. This combination of critical semiotics and political economy makes for a unique contribution to our theoretical traditions. Skoll's interdisciplinary work will interest any reader concerned with the central theoretical and practical problems facing the contemporary world system." - Graham Cassano, Department of Sociology, Anthropology and Social Work, Oakland University, Book Review Editor, Critical Sociology , and editor of Class Struggle on the Homefront: Work, Conflict, and Exploitation in the Household
