Book Description:

This classic study introduces and assesses the rival claims of three theories crucial to an understanding of contemporary social theory: the information society, post-Fordism, and postmodernism. Explaining how these theories developed and why they have held such an appeal, the book provides the most readable and evenly balanced account of three very different but overlapping paradigms. A new and substantial introduction to the second edition places the three key theories within the context of contemporary discourse on globalization. From Post Industrial to Post-Modern Society is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand contemporary theories of social, cultural, and economic change.
