Contemporary Social Theory free pdf In this comprehensive, stylish and accessible introduction to contemporary social theory, Anthony Elliott examines the major theoretical traditions from the Frankfurt School to globalization and beyond. The first edition set new standards for introductory textbooks, such was the far-reaching sweep of social theorists discussed - including Theodor Adorno, Herbert Marcuse, Michel Foucault, Jacques Lacan, Jacques Derrida, Anthony Giddens, Pierre Bourdieu, Julia Kristeva, Jurgen Habermas, Judith Butler, Slavoj Zizek, Manuel Castells, Ulrich Beck, Zygmunt Bauman, Giorgio Agamben and Manuel De Landa. This new edition has been fully revised and updated, taking into account the most recent developments in social theory. There are new sections examining the responses of major social theorists to climate change and global warming- the turbulence of the global financial crisis- the resurgence of religious conflict throughout the world- and current mobility transformations affecting travel, transport and tourism. Like its predecessor, the second edition of Contemporary Social Theory combines stylish exposition with reflective social critique and original insights. This new edition will prove a superb textbook with which to navigate the twists and turns of contemporary social theory as taught in the disciplines of sociology, politics, history, cultural studies and many more.
