Editorial Reviews

"Patricia Nickel does social theory an indispensable service. Some will be surprised to learn that there is, as she shows, a vibrant and important North American tradition of critical theory - one linked to its European past but also original in its own right. Nickel's thoughtful essays and informative interviews taught me things about people I've read and known for years. It is hard to put this book down." - Charles Lemert, Senior Fellow, Center for Comparative Research, Yale University, USA
