About the Author:


Ben Agger is Professor of Sociology and Humanities and Director of the Center for Theory at the University of Texas at Arlington. Among his recent books are Texting Toward Utopia: Kids, Writing, and Resistance (2013), Oversharing: Presentations of Self in the Internet Age (2012), and Body Problems: Running and Living Long in a Fast-Food Society (2010).

Review:


"This text is the best summary of critical social thought on the market. Instead of compartmentalizing theory with a chapter by chapter focus on specific theorists, it explains the evolution of a diverse body of thought, broadly conceived of as critical theory. I know of no other book that covers this body of thought so thoroughly. It fills a necessary void."--Kathleen J. Fitzgerald, Loyola University-New Orleans
