9780470264256: Critical Sociology: European Perspective (Irvington critical sociology series)

Throughout the 1970s, whether in Paris at Alain Touraine's Centre d'étude des movements sociaux or at the Boston University Sociology Department, J. W. Freiberg came to know the era's most prominent and innovative European social theoreticians and social psychologists.

Over five consecutive summers, Freiberg invited ten of these highly respected academics to present intensive one-month-long graduate seminars at Boston University. The seminars were attended by graduate students and young professors from throughout the United States. Alain Touraine and Italy's Franco Ferrarotti visited during the first summer; England's Anthony Giddens and Germany's Claus Offe during the second; Spain's Manuel Castells and Greece's Nicos Poulantzas during the third; England's Ralph Miliband and Germany's Hans Peter Dreitzel during the fourth; and Sweden's Göran Therborn and England's Robin Blackburn during the fifth year. During the regular academic years, Freiberg welcomed Germany's Hans Peter Dreitzel, England's Michael Mann, Canada's John O'Neill, Spain's Vincente Navarro, Germany's Urs Jaeggi, Egypt's Anouar Abdel-Malek, and notably France's Henri Lefebvre, who kept his listeners spellbound with a week of splendid lectures.
In Critical Sociology: European Perspectives, Freiberg translates into English and compiles papers from these academic giants. The book is a treasure trove of insightful thought in social theory and social psychology from a collection of social theorists who between them have published well over a hundred books. Freiberg introduces the collection with a powerful chapter, entitled "Critical Social Theory in the American Conjuncture," in which he analyzes the strictures and limits to American theoretical work on social psychology and critical social theory.
