Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The level of scholarship by Giddens as well as his critics is superb. The select bibliography is conveniently divided into works by Giddens and works on Giddens. The index is far more comprehensive than one would expect, and is genuinely helpful." S. G. Mestrovic, Texas A & M University, in Choice

"Social Theory of Modern Societies: Anthony Giddens and his Critics performs a balanced act of drawing to our attention the furthest horizons of this ambitious project, as well as pointing to some well-aimed salvoes which have pierced that far-reaching endeavour." Henri Lustiger-Thaler, Canadian Review of Sociology

"Social Theory of Modern Societies: Anthony Giddens and his Critics performs a balanced act of drawing to our attention the furthest horizons of this ambitious project, as well as pointing to some well-aimed slavoes which have peirced that far-reaching endeavour."
