Editorial Reviews

John J. McDermott
This book is a rich and thick version of a 'new wave' in Sociology. In short, these sharp, very informed diagnoses of the parochial, reveal deep philosophical themes, rendered throughout with critical worry. Keep your eye on Harden, Carley, and their contributing colleagues
Kristi M. Wilson
A unique, cross-disciplinary exploration of social institutions on the postmodern landscape. This book will unsettle those who cling to the integrity of the modern subject and find comfort in its time-honored institutions.
Ellen L. Gorman
The best feature of this book is its depth in terms of an examination, via various voices and texts, of the constructs of culture and power in a very contemporary schematic sense. The arguments range from real subtlety to a more strident tone, but all have much to offer in terms of new knowledge and thinking on these issues. They will, undoubtedly, stimulate and incite various readers to question and evaluate these and other texts in very productive ways.
