Anthony Giddens and Modern Social Theory
- Kenneth Tucker - Mount Holyoke College, South Hadley
Cultural Studies (General) | Sexualities | Social Theory
The book is the most complete and thorough assessment of Giddens' work currently available. It incorporates insights from many different perspectives into his theory of structuration, his work on the formation of cultural identities and the fate of the nation-state. This far-reaching work also touches on issues such as the transformation of modern intimacy and sexuality, and the fate of politics in late modern society.
