From the Back Cover:

Social Theory in a Changing World provides a critical assessment of contemporary social theory for students in the social sciences. The central theme of the book concerns the nature of modernity and the ways in which contemporary thinkers shave understood it. Delanty argues that modernity involves a tension between autonomy and fragmentation On the one hand, the cultural project of modernity refers to self-assertion and creativity. On the other, modernity as a social project tends to destroy its own cultural foundations, as institutional structures become increasingly diffuse and fragmented. Against this backcloth, Delanty examines the writings of a number of key contemporary thinkers, including Habermas, Foucault, Bauman, Touraine, Giddens and Beck, and provides a clear account of the strengths and limitations of their work.

This book will appeal to second- and third-year undergraduates, and graduates and academics in sociology and social theory, politics, cultural studies and other social sciences.

About the Author:

Gerald Delanty is a Reader in Sociology at the University of Liverpool.
