Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'Given that Giddens's theorrtical project is still in full and far from being completed, Craib's book offers a consistent, readable rendition of "the story so far": a useful summary of everything accomplished to-date and an inventory of unresolved issues and open-ended questions. To synthesize in such a way is a tall order, and, Craib has acquitted himself of the challenging task better than most other writers'. Zygmunt Bauman, Professor of Sociology, Leeds University.
