Modernity and Authenticity
Modernity and Authenticity (January 1993)
A Study of the Social and Ethical Thought of Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Alessandro Ferrara - Author

"This book is an original analysis of the idea of authenticity in Rousseau's work in particular and in the tradition of modern ethics in general. It begins with an overview of the persistent critique by contemporary conservatives of the notion of authenticity. Ferrara succeeds in bringing out the relevance of Rousseau to current discussions of modernity and postmodernity. It also brings some initial clarity and coherence to an idea--authenticity--th...(Read More)
 
 
Dialectical Social Theory and Its Critics
Dialectical Social Theory and Its Critics (December 1992)
From Hegel to Analytical Marxism and Postmodernism
Tony Smith - Author

Establishes that dialectical social theory retains practical importance today and is, in fact, crucial to interdisciplinary attempts to construct a viable theory of the social world.

That there is a "Hegelian legacy" in Marx's writings is not in dispute. There is great controversy, however, over the extent to which this legacy should be affirmed or rejected. In fact, the Hegelian orientation toward Marx and toward...(Read More)
 
 
National Service, Citizenship, and Political Education
National Service, Citizenship, and Political Education (September 1992)
Eric B. Gorham - Author

"Political socialization has long been a theoretical sore spot in political science. Gorham has demonstrated its weaknesses as a conceptual scheme for interpreting citizenship, and he has opened up a new area of investigation for political scientists and theorists concerned about the current debates and proposals for a new national service. His argument has historical depth, theoretical rigor, and immediate practical implications."-- Steph...(Read More)
 
 
Matrix and line
Matrix and line (August 1992)
Derrida and the possibilities of postmodern social theory
Bill Martin - Author

"Bill Martin's Matrix and line is the most comprehensive and exciting of a number of recent North American attempts to assess the politics of deconstruction and the deconstruction of modernist politics. It shows how the question of the other, the marginal and the excluded are decisive for an emerging form of political thought and practice. A confrontation between Jacques Derrida's and Jurgen Habermas's philosophies of language sets the stag...(Read More)
 
 
Environmentalism and Political Theory
Environmentalism and Political Theory (May 1992)
Toward an Ecocentric Approach
Robyn Eckersley - Author

"Green political theory is the most exciting new area of inquiry for political theory scholars. The author's scholarship significantly advances that inquiry. This area is also important for the future of life on planet Earth, as the presently dominant political theories are leading us to an environmental catastrophe. I have long perceived the need for this kind of book." --Lester Milbrath, State University of New York at Buffalo

The Normative Grounds of Social Criticism
The Normative Grounds of Social Criticism (December 1991)
Kant, Rawls, and Habermas
Kenneth Baynes - Author

"This is an outstanding contribution to the theory of justice. In addition to well-researched, lucid, and insightful accounts of its three principals, it offers far and away the best discussion available of the relative strengths and weaknesses of Rawls and Habermas. Baynes has provided us with an instructive example of how the usual, but often artificial divide between Continental and Anglo-American political theory can be successfully bridged, i...(Read More)
