Addresses the question: Can we apply ordinary standards of responsibility to the mentally disordered offender?
“Recent Marxian Theory is very learned; it surveys an impressive range of recent work in Marxist theory and does so with considerable penetration, care, and insight. The usefulness of the work does not lie only in the interesting and instructive readings of a very large literature. Sitton uses his reading to construct a political theory of his own that deserves being taken very seriously.” Richard Schmitt, Brown University“Sitton’s book covers an astonishing range of topics in recent Marxian theory. To my knowledge, he is the first person to show in detail how the perspectives of analytical Marxism, Offe and Habermas, and world systems theory are complementary attempts to deal with the same set of issues. This is a major contribution. Furthermore, the book is as well written as any work in social theory I can recall. It should be of great interest to anyone who wants an overview of much of the intellectual terrain of recent Marxism.” Tony Smith, Iowa State University
