Critical Sociology "Has the foundation of critical theory been withdrawn with the collapse of communism? Stephen Eric Bronner argues the opposite: only now, liberated from marxian dogmatism, can a genuine critique of modern society begin. He develops his ideas in an immanent and emancipatory confrontation with critical theory and its proponents. There is no other single work on critical theory that offers such a unique range of thinkers and their ideas

Had to buy for a class.

Contrary to the editorial reviews, this book is full of jargon, it's disjointed and superficial (probably partly due to its breadth), the concepts are poorly explained, and Bronner gives no concrete examples to illustrate the concepts. I have read approximately 40 books on critical theory. This is the worst I have read so far. Kellner, Held, Jay, and Geuss are far more accessible -- they write as if they and their audience share the same language and expectations. The book does have one redeeming quality: Bronner critically evaluates the logical coherence and contributions of various critical theorists in a manner that is not likely to be found in other works. But even for this, be prepared to strongly disagree with Bronner on any critical theorists you happen to have read beforehand.

I found it rather odd that a work of real merit could spring from an author who has no familiarity with subject. He might as well have written about cold fusion for all he added, or didn't add to field.

It seems he was attempting to span a wide array of topics, but with no direction or articulate point of view.

In the end, the attempt was wholly lacking.
