Summary
This text, written expressly for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students in sociology, political science, English, and humanities courses provides a cogent and accessible explanation of critical social theory. Ben Agger introduces students to the Frankfurt School, postmodernism, theories of multiculturalism and difference, feminist theory, and cultural studies. Arguing for an integration of these theories, Critical Social Theories is a useful supplement to social theory texts. Throughout the book, Agger considers implications of critical social theory, making the book highly relevant to mainstream sociologists seeking theoretical guidance
